Built in 1893, our home is the original farmhouse south-east of what is now the intersection of Pape and Danforth Avenues in Toronto. Since being constructed it's gone through several owners and incarnations, from farm house to a boarding house known as the Hotel Cavell. Later it was restored by award-winning filmakers John Zaritsky and Virginia Storring. While in their care the house maintained it's pseudonym while hosting members of the international arts community.
We still play host to our friends and family, whether for short visits or extended stays. One of the features of visiting is the food. Those who find their way to our door will find that there is always something to eat, be it lunch, tea, or dinner. We always do our best to ensure that the fare served is as good as our culinary skills allow, and we doubt you will find anyone who would disagree that it is always excellent.
This blog will give you a peek into what's cooking in the kitchen or on the grill at the Hotel Cavell. Here you will find original recipes, anecdotes, and links to the suppliers of fine foods, both prepared and ingredients.
We hope you enjoy your visit!
