A LOSS IN THE COMMUNITY: CHEF SCOTT SAVOIE
It’s with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of Chef Scott Savoie, founder of Toronto Food Tours and a pioneer of the city's culinary tourism industry. Chef Scott launched his first culinary tour company in 2010, and since then committed himself to helping locals and visitors alike, experience the best of Toronto’s food scene.
Known as "Cheffie" by his friends, he cared deeply about supporting this community, the culinary scene and the many people who took his tours over the years. That care was never more apparent than over the past year. Last summer, he launched the Chef Scott Shop, a curated food delivery service to help support struggling vendors from the St. Lawrence Market affected by the pandemic.
With his generosity and East Coast charm, he went out of his way to lift up other tour operators and was always willing to provide support to entrepreneurs throughout the industry. Please join all of us at Destination Toronto in extending our deepest condolences to Chef Scott’s family, friends, colleagues and all of those he impacted throughout his life and career. His generous spirit and passion will be greatly missed.
