Michael Potters keeps it rustic at Hockley Valley’s new restaurant Cabin
One-time Torontonian Michael Potters has been announced as the chef at Cabin, a new upscale restaurant at Orangeville’s Hockley Valley Resort. In a release, Potters says the new restaurant will showcase “the emerging ‘Canadiana cuisine’ trend,” with ingredients from local farmers as well as the resort’s own two-acre fruit and vegetable garden. Potters has a lot of experience living off the land, having cooked up cattails at his own restaurant, Harvest, which he shuttered last November. He’s also known for his work at Milford Bistro and a stint in the ’90s at Rosewater Supper Club. The 70-seat dining room at Cabin features beams and hardwood floors reclaimed from an old barn, a 16-foot chandelier and a chef’s table where patrons can watch or interact with the man at work. Cabin fever starts on December 17.
