The Two Chefs

Todd Perrin

Todd Perrin

Canadian foodies know Todd Perrin as the burly, entertaining, larger than life Newfoundlander who made it to the top 8 in The Food Network’s hit series Top Chef Canada 2011.

Todd graduated from The Culinary Institute of Canada at Holland College in PEI and went on to work at The Lodge at Kananaskis in Alberta and then at a private hotel near Zurich, Switzerland. In 2001, he opened “Two Chefs”, a fine dining eatery in St. John’s that in its first year, was listed as one of the country’s Top 50 New Restaurants in enRoute Magazine.

In 2008, he opened ‘The Chef’s Inn’, a B&B in downtown St. John’s, Newfoundland where he sources the freshest local ingredients from his own backyard, neighbours’ farms and his root cellar, practicing farm-to-table whenever possible.  Todd’s latest project is a new restaurant at Mallard Cottage, in Quidi Vidi Village, St. John’s.
