Cooking for Life
The Canadian Cancer Society in partnership with the Restaurant Association of Newfoundland and Labrador, the Chefs Association and TC Media are proud to offer a new program to the guests who stay at Daffodil Place called “Cooking for Life.” Once a month, local award winning chefs will work with Daffodil Place guests to teach them how to prepare healthy nutritional meals.
Canadian foodies know Todd Perrin as the burly, entertaining, larger-than-life Newfoundlander who made it to the Top 8 in The Food Network’s hit series “Top Chef Canada” 2011. Todd graduated from The Culinary Institute of Canada at Holland College in P.E.I. and went on to work at The Lodge at Kananaskis in Alberta and then at a private hotel near Zurich, Switzerland. In 2001, he opened Two Chefs, a fine dining eatery in St. John’s that, in its first year, was listed as one of the country’s Top 50 New Restaurants in enRoute Magazine. In 2008, he opened The Chef’s Inn, a B&B in downtown St. John’s, where he sources the freshest local ingredients from his own backyard, neighbours’ farms and his root cellar, practicing farm-to-table whenever possible.
Todd’s latest project is a new restaurant at Mallard Cottage, in Quidi Vidi Village, St. John’s.
