Novella is writing a whole new chapter on collaborative cooking and dining. The newest restaurant from the team behind Published on Main just opened at the end of 2022—by day a coffee bar and by night, a dinner spot. For this event, Chef Ashley Kurtz, formerly the Chef de Cuisine at Michelin-starred St. Lawrence, and Gus Stieffenhofer-Brandson, Executive Chef at Michelin-starred Published on Main, welcome guest chefs Daniel Hadida and Eric Robertson from Niagara’s Restaurant Pearl Morissette, currently No. 4 on Canada’s 100 Best and recently listed on La Liste’s Top 500. This quartet of some of Canada’s most creative and skilled chefs will serve up a dinner that will be one for the books, all to be enjoyed with low-intervention wines from Pearl Morissette, who together are founded on a holistic approach to regenerative practices and processes.

Novella is the latest release from the team behind Michelin-starred Published on Main, which is currently the No. 1 restaurant on Canada’s 100 Best. Novella is at once a coffee bar, breakfast spot, neighborhood grocer, and dinner destination with a goal of connecting guests with small producers. The kitchen is led by the talented Chef de Cuisine, Ashley Kurtz, with an able assist from the skilled team at Published, overseen by Executive Chef Gus Stieffenhofer-Brandson.

The Co-Executive Chefs at Restaurant Pearl Morissette share an agrarian philosophy, a globe-trotting, Michelin-starred résumé and now the kitchen at one of Canada’s finest farm-to-table restaurants. Daniel Hadida joined the winery as Chef in 2015 and opened the restaurant in 2017. Previously, he had spent time working on organic and biodynamic farms around France and Belgium, which is where he met Eric Robertson while working at Michelin-starred In De Wulf in Dranouter. It is here that they met Chef Kurtz, and the three kept in touch while abroad, sharing experiences as Canadian chefs with similar culinary backgrounds and passions. In 2017, Chef Robertson joined Chef Hadida at Restaurant Pearl Morissette and the rest, as they say, is history.
