Larger than life passion, tireless energy, love of great food, particularly the meat! This man knows his meat!! Ivan, a certified chef and butcher is totally committed to ensuring the client and their guests an absolutely unforgettable food experience!
Serving the meat industry for over 30 years, Ivan found a passion for cooking and entertaining and started evolving and redefining the Pig Roasting process for the last 20 years.

Ivan uses local Ontario farm raised piglets, hand butchered and dressed for ultimate tenderness and flavour. Ivan also grows much of the produce, herbs and vegetables which are used in his dishes.
