At 42, Jen Agg is the woman behind five of Canada’s top restaurants. In Toronto, she created The Black Hoof, Rhum Corner, Cocktail Bar, Grey Gardens, and in Montreal, Agrikol, a place she opened with the Grammy-winning indie rock band, Arcade Fire.
It’s actually quite remarkable Agg was able to build an epicurean empire in an overwhelmingly male industry; a so-called macho culture, which she’s been fearlessly taking on. She opens up about taking on sexism in the restaurant business, her family, and what she loves about being a restauranteur.
