In this series, a Canada’s Best New Restaurants chef shares a recipe to inspire our home cooking adventures.
We have all been getting better acquainted (maybe too much) with our home kitchens. Even chefs. To help you find inspiration, we asked St. John’s native Jeremy Charles – the only chef to win Canada’s Best New Restaurant twice, for his restaurant Raymonds and as chef of Atlantica (now closed) – to show us what he’s been cooking.
In early March, Charles and partners closed their restaurants Raymonds and Merchant Tavern in order to avoid putting staff at risk. Suddenly, the chef found he had unexpected extra time to cook for his family, deliver meals to friends and tie flies for the upcoming fishing season. (The Merchant Tavern reopened in early April to serve take‑out, and fielded 600 orders for fish and chips on Good Friday.)
