The one and half story historic farmhouse that is home to Culinaria Restaurant, was built using Credit Valley stone, by an immigrant from Scotland, Adam Elliot.
Elliot built the small farm house when he and his family first immigrated and settled in Peel in 1860. He later became notable in history by serving on the Grand Jury in 1827, and again after his son built the first reaping machine in Canada.
In 1886 John Elliot, the son of Adam, sold their family home, which for the next 90 years belonged to many different owners. In 1981 the property received it’s historical designation and in 2010 became Culinaria Restaurant.
Throughout the years we’ve continued to prominently feature the beautiful and unique 19th century historic accents throughout our event spaces and dining rooms, which provides a rustic dining experience to everyone who comes though our doors.
In 2014, we grew again, adding a series of recreational cooking classes, which would become so successful we would launch Home Chef School that same year, which now proudly offers a variety of recreational classes that help us share our passions for community and food.
As a business, we are focused on fresh food, local suppliers and educating our community. We’re proud to serve food and teach with products that are ethically, sustainably, and locally sourced.
So, whether it’s perfecting a specialty menu or cooking up some new classes, we’re always planning ahead and looking forward to something new and exciting to share with you.
