Murray Street Kitchen, Fanny Chadwick's, Antoinette's
Host John Catucci has seen quite a few poutines in his travels, but Murray Street Kitchen in Ottawa, ON has managed to blow his mind once more with a potato-less poutine topped with a duck confit and swimming in “beast” gravy. Then John visits every mother’s kitchen at Fanny Chadwick’s in Toronto, ON. Cook Vega Janic is amping up old homestyle favourites, turning the restaurant into your new home away from home with comforting shepherd’s pies and savoury tourtières ! Lastly, John searches for the best Caribbean food, but instead of going down south he follows his food compass north to Antoinette’s in the Yukon. A transplanted islander, Antoinette fuses Caribbean flavours with Canadian and French favourites like Halibut T&T [Trinidad & Tobago] and a Spicy Caribbean Pork stew.
