Chef Shirley Lang – Adversity to Possibilities

By  |  0 Comments

Born to Cree parents, Executive Chef Shirley Lang was raised with an inherent respect for Indigenous ways and the power of the earth’s abundance. A single mother and soon to be a first time grandmother, Shirley lives a healthy and balanced lifestyle in order to be a positive role model to her growing family.

She arrived in British Columbia in 1995 from Toronto, leaving behind the life she had proudly created.  During her 20 years in Toronto, Shirley was a successful entrepreneur owning and operating four high end hairdressing salons and a talent agency.

Shirley was a prominent figure in the Canadian entertainment industry. At the hub of a high-profile circle of stars and celebrities she was the focus of major editorial and television coverage. She also contributed to the success of recording artists, radio hosts, television stars and prominent actors here and abroad.  

Shirley coordinated and developed programs in Vancouver and Victoria which involved the Aboriginal community within the justice process. Since 2002, in addition to her justice related work, Shirley’s entrepreneurial spirit inspired her to take her catering company, Kitchens of Distinction Culinary Arts Ltd to the next level.

Lang has since won many cooking and community awards such as the 2014 Woman to Watch Award. She has been featured in the Times Colonist, EAT Magazine, Shaw TV and CHEK News.

Shirley is a keen supporter of personal empowerment and was instrumental in the creation of The Raven Fund, a scholarship fund for up and coming new Aboriginal chefs with the Canadian Culinary Foundation in collaboration with programs that support the Murdered and Missing Women’s marches.

Along with her uncanny adeptness for bringing out the best in people, Shirley applies her personal philosophies to the challenges of everyday circumstances and the human condition. She is poised to help her audience identify their untapped gifts and skills, while sparking their imagination, broadening their realm of possibilities, and facilitating their advancement.

Through her willingness to share her personal story, Shirley demonstrates that through conscious awareness and commitment to self-growth, overcoming adversity can lead to an inspired and fulfilling life of love, abundance and possibility.
