Productions with Dan Megna

Dan Megna

Host/Community Producer


Many of you already know Chef Dan Megna as Haldimand County and Hamilton passionate, funny and talented chef - and as the host of Cable 14’s Real Food Sexy and Hamilton Eats. A graduate of the Humber College Culinary Program, he checks pretension at the door and remains true to himself and his personal mission - to contribute to his community by offering a welcomed definition of fine dining - stating with conviction: "fine dining is no more than great food, paired with great service, and it is a deserved privilege to everyone".
 Before opening his first restaurant, Twisted Lemon in Cayuga, ON, in 2009 and Hamilton's Lake Road Restaurant in 2015 Chef Dan’s experiences included working in some of Ontario's best kitchens such as Mark McEwan's North 44, Oliver's of Oakville, Rosewood Bistro (Mississauga) and the Metropolitan Hotel in downtown Toronto.
 A natural facilitator of information, for over a decade Chef Dan has eagerly shared his food knowledge both at his Twisted Lemon cooking classes & wine dinners, as well as private groups and hands-on classes. He has enjoyed teaching from his original catering kitchen, at local high schools, at the LCBO as well as at countless in-home classes. His classes have exploded in popularity, and are equally 'entertaining', 'a great time', and bursting with practical and useful culinary gems.
