This week at The Crossing has been a flurry of activity. There is so much going on in preparation for Spring and Easter. The deer are strolling through, the gophers are all chipper and happy and our resident squirrel is enjoying the warm sunshine. Our neighbours cattle are calving which tells us it is definitely Spring.
This week I would like to introduce you to The Crossing’ new Sous Chef, Matthew Bird.
Matthew was raised in Pickering, Ontario and has been living and working in Guelph for the last 11 years. He graduated from Niagara College with honours in 2010 as a Chef Apprentice. He has worked many facets of the food industry from fast food to fine dining for the last 15 years.
Highlights so far include Chef at the Fat Duck Gastro Pub in Guelph and a Sous Chef at the Prince of Wales; a five diamond hotel at the beautiful Niagara on the Lake. He also had the privilege to cook for Prince Charles and Camilla. After much ado in the kitchen to prepare a fantastic meal for them, Prince Charles advised that he just wanted a burger!
His hobbies include fishing, camping and hockey. Well we think he has come to the right place to enjoy those hobbies. He is fan of the original six of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Chef Doug and the rest of the staff at The Crossing, welcome Matt and look forward to many tasty treats.
