Executive Chef Daniel Holloway of Urban Acorn Catering believes great food is achieved by harnessing bold flavours from humble ingredients. With over 15 years in the culinary industry, he has catered for high profiled clients such as Margaret Atwood, Prince, former Lieutenant Governor Michaëlle Jean and Vegan athlete turned deputy general for the green part of Canada, George Laraque. Chef Holloway’s signature style can be best described as refined comfort food, a blend of rustic Canadian cuisine with fine French techniques.

Looking to bridge the social gap between vegans and omnivores, Holloway moved to Toronto in 2012 and joined forces with partner Marie Fitrion. They created Urban Acorn LTD., a Toronto-based sustainable plant-based food company focused on connecting food and community. Fitrion manages the day to day operations from event management to vendor relations. Though she doesn’t work in the kitchen with Chef Holloway, her influence can be seen in their menus which features a few nods to her Haitian roots.

By collaborating together and with other like-minded local businesses, Holloway & Fitrion aim to create a communal connection to food and celebrate its diversity regardless of dietary restrictions. Their food philosophy is simple… Food Should Unite, Not Divide People.
