Chef Jordan Dennis, Sobey's West Royalty
Menu: Braised Beef Tongue Sliders in a Stokdijk Jalapeno Mole, with Smoked Corn Relish, and COWS Extra Old Cheddar (True Beef from Atlantic Beef Products)
We’re pleased to have Chef Jordan Dennis of Sobeys join us for this year’s Beef n’ Blues. Jordan is the in-store Chef at West Royalty Sobey’s in Charlottetown, PE.
When asked what inspired him to become a Chef, Jordan replied “being able to create something intimate and personal is what has drawn me to become a Chef.”
This year Chef Jordan will be creating his menu with beef tongue. “I want people to get out of their comfort zone and expose them to something new,” Jordan said. “People need to appreciate and value every part of the animal we choose to eat.”
“Unfortunately, we have developed disconnect between seeing cute farm animals on TV to a perfectly cooked steak on our plate,” Jordan stated. “Knowing that the beef we are using is coming from PEI brings a sense of pride and respect along with that. The Quality product is there and it’s our job to season it carefully, let it rest properly, and above all, don’t overcook it!”
Jordan studied at Holland College here in PEI, and graduated the culinary arts program in 2007. After moving to Alberta, he became lead Chef of his first kitchen in 2010. He has been cooking, and creating ever since!
We are so excited to see what Jordan will bring to this year’s Beef n’ Blues! Welcome!
