Chef John Winter Russell is the founder of restaurant Candide, which appears on the list of 100 best restaurants in Canada according to Canada’s 100 Best. His menu features local cuisine 12 months out of the year, strictly adhering to seasonal availability. John cooks with products sourced from local producers and his two gardens. On the scale of his restaurant, few establishments stick to this principle year-round. For this young, 32-year-old chef, culinary innovation requires a sustainable relationship with the artisans, their products, and all of the people involved in the farm-to-table process.
