Now this is one very tasty battlefield! Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi had an opportunity to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake and visit with two friends / rivals.

Brijbassi: “Survive war and you’ll have friends for life. For chefs Frank Dodd and Jason Parsons, the field of battle was Cliveden House, a 160-year-old manor built along the Thames in a suburb of London. With a turreted roof and massive opulence, it looks like the kind of place a tyrant would call home and, according to the chefs who’ve apprenticed there, one has.

Dodd is the executive chef at Hillebrand Winery and Parsons runs the restaurant at Peller Estates, both prestigious establishments owned by Andrew Peller Ltd. Although their restaurants are only eight kilometres apart and compete for the same fine-dining dollar in Niagara-on-the-Lake, both chefs say there’s a benefit to being in the same town, working for the same corporation.”
