James Chatto described the medal winning effort. “He built his dish around a slice of Tamworth pork belly, impeccably cooked, crisp on the surface and meltingly soft fat beneath it. The same textural contrast was echoed by some exquisite baby artichokes, soft and yielding inside a crispy crust. Matsutake mushrooms provided a different mouthfeel as did perfect little ricotta cavatelli while the sauce was a reduction of juiced red pepper with a hit of miso and a hint of elderberry.” And all this for what really was an appetizer portion.
With Executive Sous Chef, Mark Simpson, he shops for the best ingredients in the nation in Toronto’s markets. The seafood bears the Oceanwise designation and the cheese tray is quite exceptional.
