My name is Steve Wilson and I’ve been working in professional kitchens for almost 40 years. As a child I got started cooking in the kitchen with my grandmothers and just never stopped. I’ve been a Red Seal Chef since 1996 after studying and working in both Canada and the United Kingdom. Over the years I’ve worked in almost every sort of kitchen you can imagine; hotels, restaurants, pubs, bars, golf clubs and resorts. 5 years ago, my family and I left Ontario and came to Prince Edward Island, with no regrets.
I believe in supporting your local community and your local farmers. I’ve helped run farmers markets, worked with local charities and tried to advocate for buying local. This has allowed me to discover some amazing ingredients over the years; unique foods that not everyone is lucky enough to find. The KuneKune pork from Thistledown Farms is definitely one of those amazing ingredients.
Keep an eye here for recipes and cooking tips for KuneKune pork. And if you have any questions, I’m happy to do my best to answer them.
Looking forward to hearing from all of you. Can’t wait to see what you’re cooking too! (Send us pics on facebook and instagram!!)
