Who are some of your favourite Ontario artisans, producers, or farmers? 100KM Foods, Sanagan’s Meat Locker, Pristine Gourmet, too many to name. What’s Ontario’s most underrated ingredient? Soybeans, especially with vegan/veg food trends. Favourite seasonal ingredient? Tomatoes. They’re versatile. Sweet and savoury. Favourite lakefish? Pickerel. Serving it reminds me of cottage spaces, and I think it reminds our guests of that too. All-time favourite Ontario drink? Beau’s Lugtread, and Steamwhistle. Favourite Ontario restaurant? Richmond Station What do you cook for yourself at home? Meat and veg in a single pan. And I eat it right out of the pan. What’s the best part of working with Ontario food and drink? Supporting where you’re from. I’m a Toronto boy, I love Toronto. You get this feeling that you’re supporting your city, your province. Local truly supports the farmers, the economy, and it’s what consumers are looking for these days. What we’re dying to try? We’re all about these Mealshare Sisig Fries – Van Der Brook Farm pig head, loads of chilis, ginger and Ricky ‘fancy sauce’. Bonus, every order provides a meal for someone in need!
