About Gusto Grande


Designed by Chef Justin Ladouceur

Chef Justin grew up in the heart of the Muskoka's surrounded by home cooked food his mother made with love, rarely dining out, Justin fell in love with the art of a well-prepared meal.


This love of cooking was nurtured by his culinary arts teacher, Lea-Anne Zelionko, who infused his love of food with practical knowledge about the hospitality industry.  In her class Justin developed a keen sense of service and a dedication to excellent hospitality experiences.  It is this very knowledge and dedication that has brought Gusto Grande to life in Lindsay, Ontario.

After spending time training at one of the provinces best schools, Justin followed his heart to Kawartha Lakes, finding the perfect place to grow his family and Gusto Grande.
