Dec. 2, 2014, Toronto –
Celebrated chef and restaurateur Donna Dooher is the new interim
president and chief executive officer at Restaurants Canada.

Dooher, who is owner of Mildred's Temple Kitchen in
Toronto's Liberty Village and a frequent guest on CTV's The Social, will be at the helm of the association until a full-time
replacement can be found, said a news release from the association.

In her new role, Dooher will be working closely with
well-known Prince Edward Island restaurateur Liam Dolan, who is currently chair
of the association. Dolan owns Claddagh Oyster House, Peak's Quay Restaurant
and Bar, and the Olde Dublin Pub.

 Dooher, a restaurateur, chef, and cookbook author, has been
on the board of directors of Restaurants Canada for nearly a decade. Her newest
venture is Mildred's Temple Kitchen.

“Having been a food service operator myself for more than 25
years I know first-hand the demands restaurant owners face,” said Dooher in the
release. “Providing exceptional customer experiences are not enough to keep a
business profitable and sustainable. That's why I'm proud to be part of
Restaurants Canada – an organization that provides important support to make
things a bit easier for foodservice business owners who have so much on their
plate.”

Dooher recently shared her story in the video “I am a
Restaurant,” produced by Restaurants Canada.
