Alexandra Feswick

The delightful Alexandra Feswick in her kitchen at The Brockton General.

This week, rather than tempt you with some fancypants food we decided to ask one of Toronto’s superb Chefs to show us something really, really simple.

The Brockton General‘s Alexandra Feswick has been garnering a fair helping of good press lately for both her formidable chops in the kitchen alongside her award-winning charm    (well deserved – JD)

We asked her to make something honestly simple… and so she rose to the GFR challenge… with a Feswick Omelette!

“I wanted to make an omelette for you because my favorite thing to cook is an egg… I love the comfort and simplicity of an omelette.

The variety and complexity of a single ingredient always amazes me.

One of my favorite books is Egg by Lyndsay and Patrick mikanowski… I’m in awe as I flip through pages filled with some of the worlds most inspiring chefs just worshipping eggs.”

And boy, does she love her eggs.

Whilst we understand that Alexandra’s culinary skills are way above such dishes, we have to admit that she makes one mean **********ing omelette.

The simplest of pleasures are so often the best.

Edinburgh-born/Toronto-based Sommelier, consultant, writer, judge, and educator Jamie Drummond is the Director of Programs/Editor of Good Food Revolution… and he probably made the best omelette that he has made in his 40 years after an afternoon with Alex.

    Had a dinner for 6 @ Brockton General late on a Friday evening. Tiny place, 6 staff (front & back), packed house. We were treated to 4 amazing courses, palate challenging cocktails, and an abundance of charm and wit from 5 of the 6 staff (we didn’t meet the dishwasher).

    Simple ingredients & flavours came together in unique ways, leaving all 6 of us in awe after every course.

    We’re not in Toronto often, but we have a new restaurant on top of our list of places to get back to. Thanks Alex & Brockton General.
