Rain Restaurant & Luce, Canada
Hosted at Conrad Centennial Singapore

Born in Ontario, Canada to their Italian born parents, Guy and Michael Rubino grew up in a traditional European environment in which there was a great love for food, wine and family cooking. Their childhood years had a profound role in shaping their personalities and interests. Guy Rubino started to venture into the culinary world when he was still in high school; he started Gourmet Greens, a high-end café, with Michael. With Guy's culinary experience and expertise and Michael's business acumen, the café became a great success, entrenching itself in Toronto's culinary community. Guy took some time off to advance his culinary career, travelling to New York, San Franciso and Los Angeles to work in highly acclaimed restaurants. Eight years later, Guy and Michael was ready to make their mark in Toronto. They went on to open Zoom Caffe and Bar and Rain, the ultra hip restaurant that has received the coveted four-star-ratings for its extraordinary cuisine. In 2003, the brother's career took a new turn; they developed their own food show Made to Order, which became a hit in Canada. Guy and Michael currently live in Toronto, where they continue to devote their time and energy into their love of food and wine.
