Leonard Kaposho is a husband, a father, and a chef.

Kaposho and his family came to Canada in October of 2009. They are of Burundian background, but had been living in a Ugandan refugee camp.

The family settled in Edmonton’s McCauley neighbourhood. “Edmonton has better job opportunities and we chose the McCauley neighbourhood because we have kind neighbours who helps us get involved within the community,” Kaposho says in an interview conducted via email with his youngest daughter, Umaya, translating for him.

Cooking is Kaposho’s passion, and he currently works at a camp up north, as well as running his own catering business in McCauley. “I started cooking in 1986, exactly 36 years ago. It’s was a passion I fell in love with. I even went to culinary school for it back in my country Burundi,” he says.

Kaposho says that French cuisine is his speciality, and can cater for any kind of event. His past experiences include weddings, get-togethers, and even a friend’s concert. “I am a hard ambitious worker and whatever you need can be served at your request.”
