Good Food, Simply Cooked!
on Friday, December 15th
Good food, simply cooked. That was the idea we started out with, but it’s grown to be so much more. It’s become the place we hope our neighbours stop by after work to catch-up with friends, the place families head to for weekend brunch, and the place for an intimate dinner when the idea of our kitchen seems more appealing than yours. But most importantly, we hope The Corktown Kitchen becomes a place for Corktowners to come together and enjoy good food and the company of their neighbours.
Chef Matt Griffiths was hit with wanderlust around the same time his thirst for culinary knowledge kicked in. After completing his training at Algonquin College in Ottawa he ventured across the globe in search of new culinary and cultural experiences. His travels took him around the world, with stops at the Savoy Hotel in London, The Righa Royal Hotel in New York and gastronomic stops in Australia, Vietnam and Bermuda.
When home beckoned, Matt headed back to Toronto where he worked in some of the city’s favourite kitchens including Ultra Supper Club, Five Doors North, Senses, and the Air Canada Centre's Platinum Club.
Matt's food is international in taste, but Canadian at heart. The Corktown Kitchen is Matt’s way of sharing his culinary experiences in the hopes others are inspired by his global flavours, and appreciation for good food, simply cooked.
