About Chef Andrew Paquette:

He started cooking at a young age was cooking dinner for family by ten years old, and began cooking in a restaurant at age 15 because the hours were flexable and could work around playing football. He quickly fell in love with it. After four years working in a few different kitchens around saskatoon a new opportunity working with Dale Mackay at Sticks and Stones in saskatoon became available. After working there for a year, Dale asked for help in opening a restaurant in Regina called Avenue. After 4 years as the sous chef at Avenue restaurant and bar, Andrew moved back to Saskatoon to become the head chef at Sticks and Stones.
