LINDA MILAGROS VIOLAGO
Linda grew up in Winnipeg, Canada, and was aspiring to be a ballet dancer. Recurring injuries forced her to change her path and ever since then, she’s been trying to figure out what she wants to do when she finally grows up. With over 30 years of experience in restaurants spread over 13 countries, Linda has had the opportunity to work with some of the world’s greatest chefs, and some very fun beverage programs. Along the way, she’s worked four harvests, worked a few weeks at a sake brewery, picked up (and lost) a few languages, taught English as a second language, studied meditation, practices yoga and teaches it to the broken bodies that work in the world of food and wine. Linda is currently based in Montreal.
