GE Monogram Terroir Awards

GE Monogram recently announced the first recipients for the inaugural GE Monogram Terroir Awards for Excellence in Hospitality.

The awards ceremony was held Monday, April 23rd, 2012, in the Oliver & Bonacini
Arcadian Court during the 6th annual Terroir Symposium entitled, The New Radicals.
Terroir, in partnership with GE Monogram, envisioned this program to foster merit and
creativity in Canada’s hospitality industry by allowing voters across the country to
nominate their peers in three categories – chef, beverage professional and front-of-house.

(Drumroll please...)

The winners for the first annual GE Monogram Terroir Awards for Excellence in
Hospitality are:
  • Chef: Ryan Crawford, chef, Stone Road Grille, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
  • Beverage Professional: Will Predhomme, senior sommelier/senior manager, Canoe, Toronto, Ontario
  • Front-of-house: Virgilio Vea, food & beverage director, Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa, Cambridge, Ontario
Eligibility for each award included merits such as having a minimum of five years of
industry experience, having contributed to the hospitality industry through education and
mentorship, and having supported sustainable initiatives by working with local producers
and businesses.

Congrats to the winners!
