Let us introduce you to the What's Cookin' team…
Owen and Amanda, a husband and wife team joined the What's Cookin' team in 2011, and we couldn't be happier to have them on board to help us bring the best in food to you!
Owen, a certified red seal chef, is at home in the What's Cookin' kitchen, where he creates inspired and seasonal menus to satisfy your pallette. He has worked with some of the most talented chefs in the Greater Toronto Area including Mark McEwan (North 44) and Chef Anthony Walsh (Oliver and Bonacini Group).
Amanda, our catering manager, delights in building a food experience that you and your guests will be sure to remember, for events big or small. Amanda honed her hospitality skills at the world renowned Fairmont Royal York in Toronto, where fine food and premium hospitality abounds!
A self-professed foodie at heart, Jo Fillery opened her signature red doors to What's Cookin', in the Heart of the Village of Erin, just over ten years ago. Jo's considerable culinary skills and know-how, honed during her 30 years in the hospitality industry, inform and inspire the creative menus, cooking workshops, customized catering, premier kitchen wares and foodstuffs offered by this eclectic niche shop.
Jo Fillery's passion for food and entrepreneurial spirit first began when she partnered with her brother, Mike Cuttle, to run Jake's Boathouse Restaurant in Brampton, and later in Burlington. She was further guided by the mentorship of award-winning innkeeper and friend, Wolfgang Stichnothe (Inn at Christie's Mill, Millcroft Inn). Through determination and hard work, Jo has built her own business that thrives on creating delicious meals and successful parties-for both individual and corporate clientele.
What distinguishes What's Cookin' is our hand-made, whole food philosophy. Local and organic have become hallmarks for all of What's Cookin' creations: oven-ready entrees, soups, salads, desserts and more. Whenever possible, we source fresh, organic ingredients from local farms. We also offer a complete range of catering options for special events of all types and sizes. Our goal is to provide a personal food experience that you won't soon forget, and our dedicated and friendly staff is here to help you through every step.
Amanda, Owen and Jo all call the Town of Erin home, and are passionate about the Heart of Erin and the surrounding Hills of Headwaters. We have sought out and developed key relationships with local farmers and foodie entrepreneurs to offer our customers the region's best in culinary delights.
