TORONTO — Popular Toronto-based chef Ted Corrado has joined Summerhill Market as executive chef.
Best known for his work with The Drake properties and his secret cannabis dinners with byMinistry, Corrado will be based out of Summerhill Market’s commissary, overseeing the more than 700 items the company prepares daily in-house.
Having spent more than two decades cooking in renowned Toronto restaurants, including Rain, Luce and George, Corrado emerged as one of the most influential names in the Toronto food scene. He made a name for himself in the city as head chef at the ROM’s c5.
Corrado’s contemporary and innovative cooking style was responsible for firmly setting The Drake properties as one of the city’s finest culinary institutions and for opening The Drake Devonshire in Prince Edward County to critical acclaim.
As director of Culinary for byMinistry, he oversaw the launch of its first-of-its-kind cannabis cooking school, plant-forward menus at all byMinistry spaces and a range of edibles.
Summerhill Market currently has three locations across Toronto, with a fourth location opening in the Forest Hill neighbourhood in March 2021. Part grocery store, part culinary market, Summerhill Market is known for its homemade prepared foods, high-quality fresh ingredients and unique, hard-to-find items.
