Agatha Podgorski

Community Manager

Agatha believes in local food, responsible purchasing practices and the health benefits of a glass of good pinot. She once considered law school, but after completing a degree at the University of Toronto, she realized she would much rather eat than be eaten. Agatha achieved a diploma in Culinary Management from George Brown College after which she spent time in Toronto kitchens. She’s since traded in her spoons to spread the word about Ontario’s amazing food experiences and help develop our province’s rich and varied food culture.  In 2011, she was recognized by the OHI as one of Ontario’s Top 30 Under 30 in the hospitality industry. Agatha has had many roles since joining CTA in 2011, but can now be found rubbing elbows with members, managing communications and coordinating delicious events across Ontario. She is the CTA’s brand manager, social media maven and content curator. She was instrumental in developing the Experience Assessment Tool (EAT™) and Ontario’s foodservice designation program, Feast On. She has contributed to numerous food publications including The Huffington Post, The Globe & Mail, Westjet Magazine and The Toronto Star. She was also the managing editor of The Ontario Culinary Adventure Guide.
