Master Farm-To-Table Fare With Chef Jamie Kennedy

Long before “farm-to-table” entered the foodie vernacular, chef Jamie Kennedy was growing fruits and vegetables, and raising livestock to serve in some of his celebrated Toronto restaurants, which include Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar, Gilead Café and Wine Bar, and J.K. ROM and J.K. at the Gardiner. After 40 years as one of our country’s most influential chefs, a recipient of the Order of Canada, an author and entrepreneur, Jamie left the city behind to focus on life in the county.

It was here on J.K. Farm in the heart of Prince Edward County’s wine country that we visited Jamie to watch him cook this menu of updated French classics in the stunning new kitchen addition he and his partner, landscape architect Victoria Taylor, created with the help of architect Vanessa Fong, and to hear him muse on the history of this once-quiet farming region, now transformed into a trendy wine destination.
