Chef Obsession Contest – Win Dinner at Lee Restaurant

Contest Now Closed

In celebration of S. Pellegrino Young Chef 2015 competition, San Pellegrino has given me a $300 gift certificate for dinner for 4 at Susur Lee’s Lee Restaurant to give away to one of you.  Well, one of you who is brave enough to tell me about your Chef Obsession.

Tell me about your favourite Canadian Chefs – each chef you tell me about gets you another entry in the random draw. You don’t have to know them personally, but you do need to tell me something about them and why you are obsessing over them (or they are your favourites).

Right now I’m obsessing a little about last night’s winner in the S. Pellegrino Young Chef competitionChef Paul Moran.  Paul is  from CMH-K2 Lodge in Nakusp, BC, and prepared  “Blood Pigeon, Smoked and Roasted, Beet Jus and Charcoal Oil, Polenta and Salsify”.  In fact, he prepared it twice. Once in the Canadian semi-finals against 10 young Chefs from across Canada, and then again in the finals where 3 Chefs recreated their dishes for one last round of judging.

My interest in Paul isn’t creepy though. Honest!  You see, before he heads to Milan to compete in the finals for S. Pellegrino’s Young Chef, Paul will be competing in the Black Box Challenge at Toronto Taste on Sunday June 7th supporting Second Harvest.  (I don’t think Paul knew this when this photo was taken.)Alexa Clark With #SPYoungChef Winner - Chef Paul Moran

As you probably know, I’m Co-Chair of Toronto Taste again this year.  Thus my extra keen interest!

Besides, after last night’s event I’m kind of obsessing over these guys too:

    Obsessing about Chef Susur Lee.  Not because the prize is a gift certificate to his restaurant but because this man, to me, is the most accomplished chef to come out of Toronto. The dishes he creates are tastebuds blowing, just take his famous slaw as an example.

    I also can’t get enough of andrew richardson and the la carnito tacos! I am obsessed with Asian flavours and love the combination of Flavours chef susur lee comes up with. I am obsessed that chef lynn crawford is always participating in charity events like cook for the cure. I am obsessed with that time chef matt kantor made tartare out of a beefsteak tomato 🙂 i am obsessed with the crispy prawns from the chef han brothers at odd seoul.

    I’m obsessed with The Good Son restaurant and Chef Vittorio Colacitti’s food right now, specifically because Chef and his team make some incredible vegetarian dishes, the best I’ve had in a long time from a Toronto restaurant. The food was so good I walked over to the kitchen and told him and his staff that I loved the food so much I couldn’t even handle it LOL. I haven’t been inspired enough to do that in ages! It was so good that I went back again the very next week to have some of the same dishes. I also sent a few of my carnivore friends over there to try his veggie dishes and they loved them too. He’s a genius!!!

    I’m obsessed with Wayne Morris of Borealia at the moment. Having tried two thirds of the menu with my dining party one evening, I was stunned at how every dish was executed quite remarkably with amazing flavours. I still dream about the pigeon pie with roasted squab breast. The crust literally melts in your mouth, giving way to a warm and delicious filling. The accompanying squab breast was roasted to sheer perfection. The http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89clade was some of the best and most tender mussels I’ve ever had in the city. Not to mention a mini show unto itself when served! I love how the menu reflects the nods to the diverse culture that is Canada, bringing heritage recipes to the modern era while still tipping its hat to their roots and reminding us from whence they came with the year listed on each item. The ambiance of Borealis is cozy, comfortable, and elegant, just like how you would want your own living room to be. His wife, fellow chef and accomplice Evelyn Wu, brings a homey hospitality to the service. I love that this is a Canadian cuisine restaurant, something that has often eluded us in a city with so many choices of other cuisines without a defining one of our common culture. Also, in many ways Borealia is the contemporary to Edulis, and they are currently my top two restaurants in the city. So, right now, my chef obsession clearly belongs to Wayne Morris.

    I’m totally biased as his girlfriend but Chef Dave Mottershall has been in the city for less than a year and I think what he’s doing with Loka Snacks is really inspiring in the industry. He was the chef of the best restaurant in PEI focused on local, seasonal food and after a few months as Chef de Cuisine at the Chase he decided he wanted to get back to his passion – local food. He’s been all around the city with Loka Snacks hoping to attract an investor who believes in local, seasonal food as well. And frankly few people have as gorgeous an instagram account as he does @Chef_Rouge

    My Canadian Chef Obsession is Jamie Kennedy. I was fortunate to work for Jamie in the late 90s. He is an amazing chef and mentor. Jamie was way before his time with cooking local and sustainable ingredients. He is still a force in the Toronto culinary scene. I followed his work throughout the years and I’m still in touch with Jamie and consider him a great friend.

    Obsessing abt Jammie Kennedy. I volunteered with him while at Chef school and have enjoyed his work at various restaurants over the years. He seemed kind, gentle and had lots of time to explain things. Friends have worked under him and say he’s always like that. And his fries at the old ROM location were the best ever!

    Hi Alexa!
    So I’m currently crushing over Top Chef Canada’s Dale MacKay. When I interviewed him for Savour Stratford, I discovered that he is such a humble and friendly individual.  Not only is he knowledgeable and creative in the kitchen but that he’s not ‘preaching’ anything– rather just ‘practicing’ his passion for cooking and food (i.e. sourcing local, building relationships with suppliers). Also, his food is delicious and well-executed.

    Obsessing over Nic Prong of Ten Restaurant in Mississauga. Like a lot of chefs, the kitchen stole him away from his chosen career choice which was Law. He’s a self taught chef who’s showing people in Mississauga that there are other restaurants serving us delicious and good quality food other than the chains that saturate the city.

    Chef Chef Lorenzo Loseto of George is brilliant! An award winning chef (a gold medal winner at last year’s Canadian Culinary Championships), he swears by locally sourced ingredients and has never failed me! Whether it’s a deceptively simple rabbit ragu or perfectly prepared foie gras he gives every dish his personal touch. And do I even need to mention his love of artichokes? LOL

    Chef David Lee of Nota Bene is the kind of quiet chef you don’t see a lot of on TV. His crispy duck salad is worthy of having a religion formed around it and his mushroom and truffle pasta is the stuff ballads are written about. But more importantly people seem to love working with him. We were told his fresh pasta is sourced daily from a former sous chef. And those ridiculous pieces of heaven he calls salted caramel truffles? Yup, another former employee. The fact that his front of house staff sings his praises rather than skirting issue with platitudes speaks volumes about the man.

    I kind of love Chef Martin Kouprie of Pangaea. In addition to creating food that makes my mouth water just thinking about it, he’s also a really nice guy! Even when I stop by during a busy rush I always see him taking the time to greet regulars and newcomers alike.‪ his kitchen is incredibly accomadting too! Want to split the giant crab cake ball? No problem! They simply made two smaller ones. (This request has been scoffed at at other restaurants in town.) splitting a dessert that includes donuts and a mini smoothie sounds like a fight at the table over the last drop but not here – they always prepare us two plates and an extra smoothie to avoid bloodshed. :p Kouprir runs a fabulous kitchen and I’m always eager to return for another helping.

    I am not much for Chefs, but I have to say I love Susur Lee because he does traditional chinese food with a little twist. I’ve never been a fan of fusion, I’m too much of a purist. But Lee does it so subtly that it’s like a little surprise, without ruining what you loved most about the dish.

    It seems trite to mention Susur Lee since his restaurant is the prize but a list of great Canadian chef’s wouldn’t be complete without him. Who else would combine foie gras with duck pancakes or create a dish so sublime my friends and I refer to it as Slaw of the Gods? Chef Lee also realizes that good food requires great presentation and the Singapore Slaw I just mentioned is the height of theatre with waiters listing off each of the almost two dozen ingredients as they toss the perfectly prepared slaw at the table. A restauranteur who has expanded gradually and with uncompromising standards, Chef Lee is more than “that guy on Iron Chef” he is a truly gifted artist in his chosen medium.

    My first experience with Mark McEwan was as a child at Sanssouci  in the old Sutton Place Hotel. My parents tell the story that after we finished our meal McEwan came out of the kitchen to bring a chocolate covered strawberry to the little girl who said that would be the best dessert in the whole world even though they weren’t on the menu. Fast forward many years and his North 44 catered the rehearsal dinner prior to my wedding. Fast forward a few more years and I returned to Toronto to discover that he had amassed a restaurant empire. Not content to simply cook great food he is also quiet philanthropist has worked most notably with Second Harvest. But to me, he’ll always be the man with the chocolate covered strawberries. 🙂

    Completely and totally obsessed with Scott Vivian from BEAST (and his entire team)! He is always infusing new and incredibly tasty dishes to their menu and engages up close and personal with the North American culinary community. EVERY time I eat his pork hocks it makes my heart flip flop. He is genuine, humble and incredibly talented and deserves much more exposure within the Toronto culinary scene.

    As someone who strives to lead a sustainable lifestyle, I admire chefs whose philosophy involves cooking good food without sacrificing the planet. My chef obsessions include Jamie Kennedy, Michael Stadtländer, Brad Long, Lynn Crawford and Michael Smith. Some I have had the pleasure of sampling creations from their kitchens, but all are passionate advocates and supporters of the local food movement. If anyone knows food, it’s chefs. And these renowned chefs are working hard to promote the health and environmental benefits of using local, seasonal ingredients and challenging Canadians to rethink what we put on our plates and our connection to the food we eat.

    I thought I would pass along some fabulous Chefs that I obsess over that you will find in the Collingwood and Thornbury area. There are so many great chefs/restaurants to choose from, I couldn’t pick just one.. In the Thornbury area,  two of my favourites are – Shaun Edmonstone from the Bruce Wine Bar and Scott Chalmers from Simplicity Bistro.  In Collingwood, I particularly like The Smoke Eatery and it’s owner/chef Cam Dyment, Tesoro Head Chef Tony Vanderwal and Northwinds Brew Pub Chef Travis Barron.  Each of the restaurants (and their Chefs) offer a different type of food, but all offer fresh, top quality foods utilizing local ingredients, and made onsite.

    I adore Chef Mark McEwan, I used to watch him on his show “The Heat” and that’s when I found out who he was and appreciated his style of cuisine. I remember the first time I dined at North 44, I was blow away by the meal and the atmosphere. Whether I’m dining at Bymark, One restaurant or North 44 for example each restaurant has its own unique style & dining experience. Chef really knows how to design a menu to keep you coming back again and again. #SPYoungChef #ChefObsession

    When it comes to notable Canadian chefs, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Susur Lee. While I have only been to Lee and Luckee just once, both were memorable experiences. I’m especially enamored with his signature Singaporean-style Slaw and I can tell you this dish is a favourite amongst my friends. Besides the aesthetics, the flavours and textures are beautifully complex. And during my visit to Lee, Chef Lee himself was on-site. He was gracious when we stopped him (read: fangirl) to exchange a few words. He even joined in our lighthearted teasing of our friend who insisted on ordering the slaw for herself even though it was not in line with the family-style dining philosophy at Lee’s!

    Chef Roger Mooking is another one of my favourite Canadian Chefs that I obsess over. I used to love watching his show Everyday Exotic. He would often visit Kensington market and his main goal was to use flavors and foods from around the globe and show you how to incorporate them into every day cooking. One of my favorite episodes was him using persimmons! It was a great show that taught me about foods from around the world, I miss it! But now I get to watch him as a judge on Chopped Canada. #ChefObsession #SPYoungChef

    I have to say Chef Susur Lee is  my all time Canadian favourite chef! I find that when he creates a menu it’s based on a family style dinning experience. When you visit his restaurants you want to go with at least four people, so you can try a bunch of dishes. Not only is he a fantastic chef, he makes a heck of judge on Chopped Canada.

    Chef Antonio Park, is another chef that I admire. His background and his style of cooking is very unique. He is Korean, but was also raised through out South America, he speak multiple languages and tends to incorporate those influences at his restaurants. I’m looking forward to my next trip to Montreal so I can dine at his new restaurant La Lavanderia, Argentinian cuisine!

    I’ve been lucky enough to experience quite a number of restaurants that have amazing Canadian chefs. One of my favorites is Mark McEwan’s restaurant, Bymark, where my favorite thing is the lobster poutine. It’s always a must! Another big favorite is Chef David Lee at Nota Bene. The experience at Nota Bene is the best. Not only is the food delicious, but the service and atmosphere are top notch. However, anytime I have a craving for comfort food I head straight over to Chef Graham Pratt’s amazing restaurant, The Gabardine, where they have the absolutely BEST mac and cheese. It may be a carb overload, but it is WORTH the extra time at the gym. No regrets.
