Chives Canadian Bistro, Halifax
Chef Craig Flinn and his talented team are known across Canada for their dedication to the food of the Atlantic region, most specifically Nova Scotia. Craig’s book, Fresh and Local, published in 2009, is just an extension of that dedication.
Although he has a degree from St. Mary’s University in Geography, he passion is food – local food. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of Canada in P.E.I. while apprenticing with Chef Michael Smith.
His apprenticeship continued over the next 4 years throughout Europe, Canada, and the U.S., most notably at the famous Savoy Hotel in London, England.
On December 4th, 2001, Craig opened Chives Canadian Bistro and has never looked back. He’s received dozens of accolades not only from the media but as a ‘Local Food Hero” which he definitely is.
Chives’ menus are based on seasonal produce from local farmers, artisan cheese and meat producers, and sustainable seafood. When Craig began cooking, the phrase “Canadian bistro” was an oxymoron. Today he is still pointing the way and whenever there’s a Slow Food gathering or a Chefs Congress, you can bet Craig Flinn will be there.
A recent appointment to the team is Chef Stephanie Ogilvie who took over at the helm of Chives in early July. She was chef of Brooklyn Warehouse and most recently The Black Sheep in Halifax, before starting at Chives. She also runs a supper club called HOPSCOTCH in Halifax out of Ratinaud, a unique dining experience in HFX every Sunday night.
