Sitting at the Chef’s table, we see chef Misha Nesterenko preparing the pork roast for the night.
Chef Misha, a good friend of mine, has worked in fine dining establishment such as: Gordon Ramsay’s on Royal Hospital Road, Midsummer House, Hibiscus. Having worked under Clare Smyth, Daniel Clifford and Claude Bosi, he is now the executive chef at Marben. It was a pleasure to have him and his staff cook a wonderful dinner. It was one of the better dining experience I’ve had in Toronto.
