Giving each plate a sense of balance
Eatertainment Executive Chef Chris Matthews sketches dishes before serving them, like an heirloom tomato and micro-herb gelee, asparagus royale, chilled beet consommé, and stem salad of parsley, beet, chard, and watercress (on cover).
His goal is to give each plate a sense of balance, proportion, and scale. With former experience as a restaurant owner and a caterer for airlines and cruise ships, Christopher Matthews has been the executive chef at the Toronto catering company Eatertainment for five years.
When he cooks, Matthews focuses on achieving balance between flavours, textures and colors; specialties include colorblocked dishes that incorporate seasonal ingredients.
Recognized for his striking presentation styles that don’t overwhelm a small plate, the chef is known to sketch his dishes before he prepares them.
