I'm Natalia, aka Chef Rudakova

Chef Natalia Rudakova

Welcome to Chef Rudakova website, guys!

While my first career choice was in business, accounting and administration, and I’ve spent 10 years of my life pursuing that path, that didn’t stick.

My heart and soul had always been in cooking and hospitality, so I took a leap of faith and graduated with honours from George Brown College’s Chef’s culinary training and diploma program in 2018.

Since then, I’ve worked in a variety of culinary settings, including food research labs, tiny fine-dining restaurants, huge national chains, private clubs, event catering organizations, vegan, sustainably-focused restaurants, and steakhouses. And even ran one of the best vegetable-focused, farm-to-table restaurants in Canada, Fire & Flora, as a Head Chef in 2022.

Most of all though, I’m excited about spreading the joy of good food and teaching other people the super power of cooking!

You can find me on YouTube, Instagram & TikTok.


Go from a scared amateur home cook to a confident Chef capable of cooking absolutely anything.

“I’ve spend thousands of dollars on a culinary arts degree programs, books and advanced level cooking classes, and tens of thousands of hours on practicing existing and acquiring new culinary skills in the food industry, so you don’t have to.” – Chef Rudakova
