Castro Boateng has been flying under the radar for awhile, but with his new café in Langford, he’s soared into our top chef spot.
Born in Ghana and schooled in Toronto, Boateng has worked with top chefs from Scotland and Bermuda to Banff. He humbly credits his mentors with fostering his work ethic and inspiring his fresh, vegetable-forward style, evident on every creative plate at his eponymous café, House of Boateng.
