Why Food Inspired?

After almost 20 years as executive Director of Corporate Services for the Law Society Of Ontario, Terry Knott was drawn back to her roots.  Her father was head Chef at Julie’s Mansion in Toronto – one of the city’s most venerable dining spots of its time – and Terry and another student had opened a catering company in Toronto called The Basket Bistro as soon as they graduated from art school.  

Terry admits they knew little of either business or catering but they were booked silly so it must have worked!

In the meantime, marriage and kids came along and she moved into the corporate sector. Even in her corporate world, she used food as a management tool to create a relaxed and open atmosphere for an otherwise charged working environment for the 220 people in her division.  (yikes – they didn’t all go at once!)   

Many years later, when her daughter Kelly and husband Al ventured into opening a small Port Hope bakery, she realized that food, her first love, was her next adventure…

When asked, Terry will tell you she loves the coming together of friends and family over food, a relaxing, delicious sharing of an experience that she creates with great love.   Those dreams are coming together too – enjoy!
