CHEF ALIDA SOLOMON / TUTTI MATTI
Alida Solomon is one of only a few women chef/owners in Canada.
2017 marks Tutti Matti’s 15th anniversary. Since its opening in 2002, Tutti Matti has been hailed by critics and received both local and national awards, including the prestigious 2009 “L’Eccio D’Oro” for Osteria of the Year (an award previously won by Mario Batali and Alain Ducasse).
In April 2016, Chef Solomon was awarded a “Fellow of the Institute” at the 2016 Ontario Hostelry Institute’s Gold Awards.
Alida lived and worked in Montalcino, Tuscany, for 6 years, and was highly respected in the regional hospitality industry where she garnered acclaim for the hilltop restaurant Boccon di Vino, for whom she earned Michelin recognition. Tutti Matti has stayed true to its roots — serving food and wine that honours the spirit and culture of Tuscany.
Alida is also currently working on “Motherland”, a documentary filmed in Italy, that celebrates women in wine and food.
