A new generation of chefs are coming out of the woodworks in Ottawa. Dubbed "Young Cuisine," this movement is showcasing how the most vivacious and sprite cooks are changing how residents and visitors think about food. Kevin Mathieson, who was recently considered by Ottawa Magazine to be the best Young Cuisine chef in the city, will be hosting a private, three-course dinner and conversation session for foodies who want to know more about this haute and fresh scene.
About Kevin Mathieson
Art-is-in Bakery is more than just bread, which chef Kevin Mathieson makes clear with his extraordinary brunch, lunch and dinner menu. Even though this relatively new establishment is known for serving up some really awesome loaves, it's the food that has caught the attention of foodies.
Mathieson is the mastermind behind this spectacular bakery. Born and raised in Winnipeg, this baker and chef has always had a fascination with food and since he was a young man has been perfecting his craft. Thankfully, visitors staying at Ottawa hotels can reap the benefits of his hard work and savour every last morsel, whether they're eating at Art-is-in for a delicious meal or stopping by for a pastry.
On the menu
For the private dinner on November 7, which is open to 40 lucky guests at $65 per person, Mathieson and his team have created a mouthwatering menu that will make any guest drool. The first course features a rich crispy cod clam chowder, which will be served with a potato dill baguette baked fresh and crispy. For the main course, diners will be wowed even more with Mathieson's foie gras burger and fresh coleslaw. Guests should always leave room for dessert, especially at a fancy dinner like the one at Art-is-in, and Mathieson won't disappoint with his potato buttermilk doughnut, served with creme anglaise, choco-creme and praline crunch.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour the facility as Mathieson takes them into the kitchen to show them what goes into making the bread and decadent three-course meals. The chef will be more than happy to answer any and all questions about Ottawa's food scene and what sets it apart from other metropolises with a burgeoning culinary tradition.
