Tawfik has cooked in many different restaurants in Canada and the Caribbean and spent time operating a farm. He has a real, hands-on understanding of the amount of work that goes into getting food to the table and an appreciation for those who work incredibly hard for the food we eat.
In many cases the provenance of a product is almost as important as the product itself, and Chef Tawfik feels sourcing product is as important a process as preparing it. He says, “Southern Ontario is a Land of Plenty!” and feels lucky to have such incredible products available locally.
Voted one of the “Top Ten New Chefs in Canada” by enRoute magazine, Chef Tawfik has been featured on Food Network Canada, CBC, SUN TV, Canadian Living, City Bites, Tonic Magazine, Healthy Directions and is the Media Spokesperson for Foodland Ontario.
