Shawn Karls

Shawn Karls is a doctor from Montreal, Que. who specializes in nuclear medicine. Shawn spent his childhood living in Vancouver, B.C. and developed a passion for food at a young age. He began watching cooking shows at the age of 12 and never looked back. Shawn owes most of his skills to cooking shows, the Internet, and lots of practice and believes in learning through trial and error. Seeing other people enjoy his food is what inspires Shawn to cook, and he enjoys sharing his talent with friends, family, and to impress the occasional date. Shawn’s favourite ingredient to cook with is Ahi Tuna, so it’s no surprise his favourite dish to “cook” is Ahi Tuna Tartare. In the kitchen Shawn can be found listening to EDM with his go-to cooking utensil, his chef’s knife. Shawn was recently on the show MasterChef Canada where he made it to the final 6.
