Fare + Provisions: Matty DeMille talks to Acquired Taste

Posted by Drake General Store, 2 years, 9 months ago

With Father's Day fast approaching, we're happy to share our latest campaign, Fare + Provisions with you. The collection includes an exclusive line of food, preserves and pantry items made by some of the city's top chefs. We've also partnered with Toronto-based food publication Acquired Taste to profile the chefs involved in the Fare + Provisions campaign + discuss their views on healthy eating, cooking for kids and the ceremony of family meals.

Acquired Taste had the pleasure of sitting down with the chefs (who happen to be father’s too), to discuss everything from cooking with their kids, to what it means to be a great dad. For our final interview, they sat down with Matty DeMille of the soon-to-open Drake Devonshire to chat about everything from making faces out of food to whether or not he wants his child to follow his culinary footsteps.
