Hidden Kitchen: craft beer and creative food in Ontario

Canada’s Muskoka Brewery is putting a new spin on the pop-up trend with a funky craft beer and culinary collision. Known as Hidden Kitchen, this monthly six-course dinner pairs some of Ontario’s favourite craft beer with seriously imaginative food.

The work of Chef Matt Kantor and Ivy Knight (both of past supper club fame) with Muskoka Brewery, Hidden Kitchen hosts a new chef each month in a secret pop-up space for 40 somewhere in downtown Toronto. Though not much is known before the events, eager diners can expect a mountain of beer paired with creative plates. (A recent menu featured deconstructed lobster salad and Muskoka’s entire line of craft brews.) If the unknown seems like a gamble, follow Muskoka Brewery’s motto to ‘venture off the beaten path’. They haven’t led us astray so far.
