During the Culinary Tour, Gladstone Executive Chef Michael G. Smith has created menus inspired by different neighbourhoods in the city including: Little India and Little Italy. Smith brings his experience from the ROM’s award-winning C5, Rain and Luce.
“I enjoy creating mash-ups of unlikely flavours and textures. It’s fun to surprise people by presenting them with a twist on traditional favourites,” explained Smith.
“Food should tell a story,” said Smith. “Mine comes from the places I’ve been and the people I’ve met. It comes across when you eat what I prepare. It’s the food that I love and believe in.”
