Scott Jonathan Iserhoff is a Mushkego Chef from Attawapiskat First Nations, Ontario that is located on the Western shore of James Bay. He comes from a Swampy Cree Nation that values food and has a strong practice of hunting, trapping, fishing and traditional cooking over the fire to this day. Scott studied Culinary Arts at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario and has a degree in Hospitality Management from George Brown College in Toronto.
As a First Nations person moving through the colonial academia and industry of culinary practice, after fifteen years of experience, Scott has found his passion – exploring contemporary Indigenous food through the ever-changing post-colonial lens of today. Currently, Scott operates Pei Pei Chei Ow, a business that caters Indigenous food, holds educational and interactive lectures, cultural events, as well as community dinners. His favourite dish is niska (goose) smoked over the fire, prepared in a stew with anakonaow (dumplings).
