Welcome to the inaugural edition of the S.Pellegrino Round Table, a series that gives chefs a chance to sit around the table and enjoy great food and conversation.
In the first of four scheduled episodes we watch wine expert Sheila Flaherty and well-known Canadian chefs Susur Lee (Lee), Cory Vitiello (The Harbord Room) and Matty Matheson (Parts & Labour) discuss how they broke into the business with Chuck Ortiz (editor-in-chief of Acquired Taste magazine).
The pros share their points of view about the state of the industry, the importance of commitment and what it takes to be a great cook. Then they head over to the S.Pellegrino Young Chef event where the Canadian finalist will be selected.
