About Hawthorne Food & Drink:

Hawthorne Food and Drink is the social enterprise arm of the Hospitality Workers Training Centre, an independent non-profit initiated by UNITE HERE, Local 75. Hawthorne is the result of a partnership between labour and management who are working together to create a unique and relevant new culinary training experience.

Spearheaded by Executive Chef Eric Wood, Hawthorne presents and merges the distinctive and diverse foods of Toronto's great neighbourhoods. "At Hawthorne, cuisines and cultures collide to create new and unique dining experiences," Chef Wood said. "Using this approach, we are bringing African, Asian, Caribbean, Nordic, European, and Latin American flavours and technique together to create a mouth-watering culinary explosion."

Training is a key focus at Hawthorne, where students are taught that the best food is food made from scratch by skilled hands. The emphasis on craftsmanship applies to a wide spectrum of foods, from the curing of meats, pickling and preserving to sauce making, butchery, baking and desserts. "Our mandate is to be current and to promote new and emerging techniques, such as sous vide and molecular gastronomy, to create interesting and pitch perfect meals," Chef Wood said.
