Educated at Dubrelle French Culinary Academy and Vancouver Community College, Robinson is a TV, radio, and celebrity chef personality. She was the 2014 winner of Food Network's Chopped Canada and a competitor on Top Chef Canada, according to a press release from the bistro.

Over the course of her career, she has been a Canadian delegate for Slow Food in Turin, Italy, co-authored four cookbooks, and been featured in various publications such as Avenue, Western Living, and Eat North.
