He honed his skills at Vancouver Community College, completing both the culinary arts program and the ACE IT (Accelerated Credit Enrollment Industry Training) high-school program. Achieving his red seal by the age of 22, he developed a culinary style that reflects his West Coast upbringing with a fusion of Asian and Latin influences. Camilo two favorite ingredients are lemon, and garlic, to the extent that he even tattooed a lemon on his skin.

Having worked briefly in Chile, Camilo spent the majority of his career in Gastown, Vancouver, contributing his talents to restaurants like Wildebeest and Pidgin under the guidance of Wesley Young. He further expanded his experience during a two-year stint in Toronto, working at the esteemed now one-Michelin-starred Alobar Yorkville.

Chief Operating Officer & Director of Culinary

Matthew Batey

As a budding chef, Matthew completed an apprenticeship at the Fairmont Empress Hotel and upon completion was promptly recruited to join the opening team at what was soon to be awarded Canada’s best restaurant of 2002, Catch. After his tenure at Catch, Batey joined the celebrated kitchen of Vancouver’s highly acclaimed Chef Bruno Marti. Under Marti’s tutelage, Matthew was able to hone his passion and pursuit of culinary excellence whilst working in one of Canada’s most esteemed professional kitchens. As a result, Chef Batey has initiated the next generation of mentorship in the culinary domain, thus creating a new band of kitchen talent.

After his tenure at Catch, Batey honed his passion and pursuit of culinary excellence working in the celebrated kitchen of Vancouver’s acclaimed Chef Bruno Marti. Chef Batey would then go on to The Terrace Restaurant at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery, where Matthew’s passion for showcasing regional cuisine in the Northwest was fully expressed. Chef Batey then returned to Calgary in 2014 to help open and develop The Nash as well as Off-Cut Bar.

2014 presented a new challenge for Chef Batey, and a return to Calgary to collaborate on a new project in the historic National Hotel. The development of The Nash and OffCut Bar opened the door for Matthew to be involved in the conceptual and operational design of the restaurant, consequently adding to his gastronomic pedigree.

One constant for Batey has been his desire to compete across many different platforms, he has been fortunate to represent Canada in several international culinary competitions, garnering many gold medals and one World Championship. Says Batey, “there is no greater honor than wearing the maple leaf and representing your country, I just do it with a knife not a stick”.

In early 2022, he expanded his scope becoming the Chief Operating Officer of the Teatro Group, overseeing all aspects of this iconic Calgary hospitality company.

When speaking about his work at Teatro, he has this to say, “It’s about our brigade performing night in and night out for our guests, to evoke emotion because of a beautifully orchestrated guest experience.”
