Chef Tew's philosophy for global flavors combined with a passion for local produce can be traced back to his roots in western Ontario, Canada.
An avid hunter, fisherman and forager
Throughout his culinary development, his belief in local produce has always been the greatest source of inspiration and a touchstone to his larger-than-life persona. An avid hunter, fisherman and forager, Chef Tew’s respect for the land is evident in his search for culinary excellence.
Among Chef Tew’s many accomplishments, he has competed in numerous culinary competitions to great success, was a contestant on Chopped Canada and is the proprietor of the “The Tipsy Pig” which has raised the bar for BBQ in the region by combining traditional Southern smoking, modern scratch cooking, and a dedication to hospitality.
