Chef Paul Shufelt
Paul Shufelt followed his mom around the kitchen as a child but you could say his true culinary education began at 16, when he took a job as a dishwasher. After a short stint working in Montreal, Paul enrolled in the culinary apprenticeship program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, while he worked under Chef Thomas Neukom at the Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, AB. Upon completion of the program in 2001, Paul traveled to Switzerland to hone his craft, working with Chef Urs Thommen at Gasthof Baren Utzenstorf.
With his Swiss experience providing a strong foundation, Paul moved to Edmonton, taking the helm of one of Edmonton’s premier restaurant groups, where he resided for over ten years. After over two decades in the business it was time for Chef Paul to go it alone and fulfill his dream of opening his own place.
The inspiration for Workshop Eatery takes him back to his younger days, eating the bounty of the season and cooking simple comfort food, like mom used to.
When Chef Paul isn’t in kitchen he keeps busy by writing his weekly column for the Edmonton Sun where he provides mouth-watering and stress-free recipes for the modern family. Along with sharing his love and knowledge of anything food related, Chef Paul enjoys giving back to the community by supporting two of his favourite charities, Youth Empowerment Support Services, and Ronald McDonald House. When he has a few minutes to spare, he makes time to enjoy them with his loving wife and family.
