The Twisted Cork stemmed from a concept of upscale home cooking, comfort food with a twist. For those of you that love a great meal and a quality glass of wine we had the same idea. The ‘Cork’ is located in a great building right in the downtown core of Prince George.
We want our customers to feel relaxed the moment they enter. We believe the right recipe for success in the restaurant industry is the right atmosphere + quality service + quality food at competitive prices and the room is a perfect start to the formula. Our loyal customers love our personalized treatment; it keeps them coming back each time a new issue arises. Our customers are like our family.
The food is created from proteins and produce as close to home as we can get it focusing on fresh and local ingredients. We are on constant search for local producers, bakers and butchers trying to focus on quality product indicative of Prince George and area.
The combination of quality wines with a BC focus, strong support of cottage breweries and our unique drink menu make the thirst quenching part of the business an experience of its own and rounds out the experience we wish to provide for our patrons.
I started my cooking career at the age of 22 with a Prince George neighborhood pub. Followed shortly thereafter by a job with the Coast Inn of the North hotel under several chefs, receiving my red seal in 2005. I completed my culinary education with a two year apprenticeship through Okanagan University College.
I spent 8 years in the culinary industry and in 2006 I left the Coast Hotel to pursue other ventures until march 2009 when i decided to re-enter the hospitality industry. I am very happy to be back in this industry and open a restaurant that I believe meets the need for casual fine dining in Prince George. Its been a life long dream to open and run a restaurant that offers great food and fine wine at on affordable price.
At the Twisted Cork, we are committed to creating menu items that are created from proteins and produce as close to home as we can get.We focus on finding fresh and local ingredients. We are on constant search for local producers, bakers and butchers trying to focus on quality product indicative of Prince George and area.
Please come in and join us for lunch, dinner or simply relax with friends and family and enjoy a glass of wine. I look forward to seeing you at the ‘Twisted Cork’.
