He continued with his career at the exclusive Granite Club, as well as ClubLink.
Over the years, Hogan worked under influential leaders of the Canadian culinary profession who helped shape his style and depth of knowledge.

Hogan's culinary philosophy and passion reflects the growing trend towards a healthier, fresh and down-to-earth lifestyle. Working with neighboring farmers to seek out the finest in regional and local organic produce, is the essence of his cuisine.
