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.
