DISCOVER OUR STORY

Chef Scott Bailey

Chef Scott Bailey founded City Farm Catering in 2015 with an objective to create a company that would earn a reputation for quality, dedication and creativity. Those objectives remain true today and has guided the growing business to become highly sought-after and well recognized in major cities across Ontario.

Prior to City Farm Catering, Chef Scott Bailey honed his craft and culinary techniques through a coveted stage at The Fat Duck, which is one of the only three-star Michelin rated restaurants in Great Britain. It was under the master leadership of Chef Heston Blumenthal that Chef Scott would gain a global perspective to propel him to the next level of his culinary journey.

Returning to his hometown of Hamilton, Chef Scott began working with the city’s best and most well-known restaurants including Ancaster Mill, Spencer’s at the Waterfront, Bread Bar, Compass Restaurant and Yolanda’s Spuntino Casa. Each served as a valuable milestone to set the infrastructure for City Farm Catering.

The future would see Chef Scott ranked Top 30 Under 30 by the prestigious Ontario Hostelry Institute and working alongside globally-acclaimed chefs including Chef Michael Stadtlander, Chef Curtis Stone and professional gourmet Carlo Petrini, Founder of the International Slow Food Movement.

Today, City Farm Catering has become synonymous with quality and resounding consensus that it is elevating the catering landscape with creativity, novelty and edge. The growing company has earned a reputation for going beyond kitchen limits and crafting experiences in unique, offsite destinations with a focus on local, fresh and regional ingredients. Meticulous attention to detail, handcrafted dishes, and a farm-to-table commitment has City Farm surpassing even the highest of standards.

As a successful and thriving business on track for significant expansion into new markets, Chef Scott is quickly becoming a staple name in the Canadian culinary landscape.

OPERATIONS LEAD – QUINN PALLISTER

Quinn’s love for baking is evident to anyone who crosses her path and it all started at a young age, making shortbread with her beloved granny.

Since then, her passion and unquestionable skills evolved and earned her a spot at George Brown College’s Baking and Pastry Arts Management program where she underwent advanced patisserie training. The program also taught her critical management skills which are evident in Quinn’s day-to-day strategic thinking.

Following George Brown, Quinn’s talent couldn’t be ignored and she was quickly swooped up by some of Hamilton’s most reputable bakeries including Cake & Loaf Bakery and Bread Bar.

Quinn delivers more than nine years of customer relations and baking production. These skills learned in the kitchen have translated to her approach to the management of large scale events and overall organization.

Today, she is a proud member of the City Farm Catering team where she is regarded as a remarkable Operations Lead who continues to impress. She is recognized for her leadership, seamless management of events and client experiences, as well as her ability to manage and organize teams on a day-to-day basis. She is a wonderful addition to the City Catering family.

CHEF BRANDON MCCABE

True grit defines Chef Brandon who harnessed his craft in unconventional places from the ground up until officially joining City Farm in 2019.

Chef Brandon has strong roots in Caledonia, Ontario where his parents played an integral role in his culinary development, encouraging him to explore with local ingredients and diverse cuisines.

His passion for the culinary arts was instilled by generations of passionate chefs and cooks in his family. His mother was an avid baker and his father was a firefighter who cooked regularly for an army of hungry heroes at the fire station. Even his grandfather was an executive chef in Germany before moving to Canada where he would establish his own independent restaurant.

Today, Brandon is a shining star at City Farm and regularly calls it the perfect environment where he can be part of the culinary process from conceptualization to execution, step by step. His knife skills and passion for innovation are essential and an invaluable asset to the entire team.

CHEF SI QIN

Chef Si Qin never shies away from trying something new, and she brings her contagious energy to her role at City Farm Catering.

Chef Si grew up curiously watching her family prepare meals in her home in China. From there, she would continue to learn and hone her culinary craft working with Chef Jeff Kang in the Canis kitchen and later with Chef Justin Knezaurek at Earl’s Kitchen + Bar, and Chef Rony at Rony’s.

Chef Si gathers inspiration from each encounter with another Chef’s passion for cooking, life experiences and determination, and this shines through in everything she creates at City Farm. To this day, Chef Si credits her innovative spirit and culinary expertise to the mentors she met along the way.
