WELCOME

Every great chef has learned everything they know from pick-pocketing ideas, techniques and hands-on skills from other great chefs, friends and family.  Sharing great food is sharing love and happiness, and those are always the first ingredients.

CHARCUTERIE

Let's eat!

The ancient art of charcuterie: curing pork, meats, patés or salted and dried fruits.

 

The evolution of charcuterie: sharing boards artistically arranged on live edge ancient woods which include: cured meats, exquisite cheeses, delicious breads, fruits, vegetables and almost anything else you can imagine.  Food that looks as good as it tastes.

RELAX, CHAT AND NIBBLE

 

A more fluid approach to dining.

 

Enjoy distinctive farm to table ingredients, fresh seasonal organics, creative presentation and most of all, exciting flavours your guests will remember long after the last taste.

LIVE EDGE SHARING BOARDS

For those with pure food indulgence in mind, satisfy your foodie wishes with my ever changing locally and seasonally inspired sharing platters served on Canadian live edge boards.  Please allow 24 hours notice when ordering.  Prices listed are per person and do not include tax.  Minimum 10 people.  Custom orders available upon request, and I can also accommodate specific dietary requirements.  Additional charges may apply.

TASTE, VISION & PASSION

Make an emotional connection with your guests.  Casual dining, comfort and simplicity or a multi course culinary story for a small group.  I will always offer a unique foodie experience and inspirational cuisine to delight and inspire you and your friends.  I pride myself on knowing the language of the whole culinary spectrum: taste, enthusiasm, wholesome foods, detail, sharing and love.  To me, that is what cooking is all about, and it always shows in every share board and dish I make.

I'M THE CULINARY PICKPOCKET

When I was child, it was the smells that impressed me the most.  The Covent Garden Market in London.  Especially the delicatessen.  The farmers and the smell of the summer fields.  Fresh corn, baked Portuguese breads and fish.  It was heavenly.  Fast forward to Oma's after a lazy day of playing at the park with Opa.  I could smell what she was making before I even made it to the back porch.  She was cooking what she loved, and knew that we all would love it too.  From time to time, somewhere I catch a whiff that takes me back to those days and makes me smile from ear to ear.

On my own culinary journey, I have been very fortunate to work alongside some amazing chefs and cooks in St. Marys, Stratford, London and Waterloo.  The most inspirational chef I was taught by was Steven James, who apprenticed under the famed Anton Mosimann, michelin star chef and royal warrant to HRH Prince Charles.  He taught me skills, confidence, and creativity.  He was both serious and fun, strived for perfection and cooked with love.

And that is how I have been cooking ever since.
