Long Table Dinner with Chefs Crawford & Shufelt with Henry of Pelham and Peninsula Ridge at Workshop Eatery
Celebrated Chef Ryan Crawford and his wife and business partner, Beverley Hotchkiss, operate Backhouse Restaurant, in the heart of Niagara Wine Country. Chef Crawford studied at the noted Stratford Chef School. He has travelled extensively, staging at The French Laundry and Terra Grill in Napa Valley; l’Orangerie, Lucques and Patina in Los Angeles, and Jardinière in San Francisco. Closer to home, he has worked with Michael Stadtländer and Jamie Kennedy. He has received numerous accolades and most recently people’s choice award for Air Canada Enroute’s 2016 Best New Restaurant in Canada 2016 and Where magazines best new restaurants in Canada 2015. Chef Crawford’s approach to ‘cool-climate cuisine’ extends beyond a mere farm to table approach — he has integrated a 3-acre farm and a full-time farmer into Backhouse ensuring that your experience starts with the freshest product possible and establishing a foundation for a culinary journey that remains forever memorable.
Paul Shufelt followed his mom around the kitchen as a child but you could say his true culinary education began at 16, when he took a job as a dishwasher. After a short stint working in Montreal, Paul enrolled in the culinary apprenticeship program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, while he worked under Chef Thomas Neukom at the Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, AB. Upon completion of the program, Paul traveled to Switzerland to hone his craft, working with Chef Urs Thommen at Gasthof Baren Utzenstorf. With his Swiss experience providing a strong foundation, Paul moved to Edmonton, taking the helm of one of Edmonton’s premier restaurant groups, where he resided for over ten years. After over two decades in the business it was time for Chef Paul to go it alone and fulfill his dream of opening his own place. The inspiration for Workshop Eatery takes him back to his younger days, eating the bounty of the season and cooking simple comfort food, like mom used to. Join these two incredible chefs for a long-table dinner as they pair their honest cuisine with the wines of Henry of Pelham featuring owner Paul Speck and Peninsula Ridge featuring owner Norman Beal.
