Roger spent his first five years in this twin-island country, before his family moved to Canada, settling in Edmonton, Alberta, where his parents owned a restaurant, and young Roger learnt the business, in addition to learning how to cook. It was his mother that taught him how to mix European flavors. As he grew up, Roger became more and more focused on cooking, and when it came time to enroll at the college, Roger decided for George Brown College of Hospitality, where he studied culinary arts.
