Martin Aller-Stead is a teaching chef and co-op teacher, who has worked with over 10,000 students during his career. His philosophy of education is “My work is to open your eyes to the world as it really is,” which aligns well with the intent of alumni engagement and the value of an active alumni community. He speaks highly of the opportunities afforded students who attend UBC, and encourages many students to discover their wings and go west.
Gillian Anderson has had a lifelong passion for bringing people together with memorable experiences. While completing her graduate diploma in Education in Australia in 2008, she worked with a wine company and started hosting wine-pairing-style dinners from her home in Melbourne. She became inspired to start her blog and business, where she’s better known as “One Blonde Chef”. Her approach is to combine simple techniques, inspired by international flavours, to create impressive yet approachable dishes with her own twist.
