It was an honour in 2012 to bring Newfoundland cuisine to prestigious James Beard House in New York City with an all female chef team! http://www.jamesbeard.org/events/canadian-spring-celebration
Bacalao is top of the list of Culturetrip’s The 10 Best Restaurants in Newfoundland & Labrador!
CHeck out my wine cellar segment on One Chef One Critic at minute 11:35 and my niece, and budding sommelier, Julia Maunder (at age 8) sniffs and swirls at minute 25:41!
My dessert segment on One Chef One Critic – Lemon Semifreddo. Starts at minute 20:55.
On November 12th, we look forward to participating in the Olympic Gold Medal Plates competition. The Bacalao team won in 2012 and went on to represent Newfoundland at the Canadian Culinary Championships in Kelowna, BC. Chef Matt, Sous-Chef Nick and the team look forward to this year’s competition.
Bacalao has participated in Food Day Canada (August 1st, annually) since its inception in 2009. A celebration of local food across the country, it’s a natural fit for Bacalao, as we are hyper local every day of the year! We received a award for hyper-local cuisine in the first year and again in 2014! We participated again this year in the wonderful event at the Sheraton and featured a beautiful hyper-local prix-fixe menu (and wait to hear who won this year.)
For the fifth year in a row, Bacalao has been awarded the TripAdvisor Award of Excellence! This is awarded to restaurants that consistently rate 4½ stars out of five in guest reviews. We work hard to ensure every guest experience exceeds expectations and monitor all reviews and review sites to make sure we stay top of our game.
