Bauer Kitchen, Waterloo, Ontario
Fine restaurants were few and far between in the early days of Kitchener Waterloo dining. If you wanted to celebrate or for a tremendous meal, you’d head to the Charcoal Steak House. The venerable steak house as grown into a full-fledged restaurant group with veteran Food Day Canada chef Todd Clarmo now overseeing the food service. With his influence the Bauer Kitchen’s menu is going to become more and more local in its focus which is great news for Waterloo diners. Chef Clarmo opened the legendary Canoe Restaurant in Toronto and has won countless accolades for his dedication to Canadian cuisine. He believes that “local food connects producers to consumers in the same geographic region” and as such helps to “develop sustainable food networks, improve local economies and has a positive environmental impact.
As such, Bauer Kitchen sources much of its produce from 100 Mile Food Services; Ingersoll’s Local Dairy that provides cheeses and crème fraîche and Edesia in Cambridge, another company that sources local fish and other cheeses like MountainOak Gouda from New Hamburg. The rabbit comes from Abate Packers in Arthur, the flour from Arva Mills, the honey from Dave’s in London. There’s Elmira’s Own Tomatoes, Norwich Packers….the list is long and full of dedicated purveyors.
These people step up to the plate. Here’s a fabulous commentary on how they “went to market”. Check it out.Menu Bauer Kitchen FoodDayCanada_Final
