Chef Kouprie has “only lived up here [in the country not far from Alton] for six years. I thought there would be an opportunity for me. I came up to run and chef at the Globe restaurant but I didn’t stay for long.
“I’m so thankful that I’m up here,” he went on to say. “My family and the Grants met on vacation at a resort and then we met again here and [it has worked out very well]. The Pond Gallery will host the restaurant and it will service the snack bar downstairs. This all has to happen together.”
Martin Kouprie is a chef by training, commenting, “I’ve been cooking longer than I’ve done anything else.”
His training was primarily acquired by working for the best chefs, back in the day when they had a trial system, telling us that chefs don’t do that anymore. Many times they hired an employee on merit.
Chef Kouprie went to Humber College to complete his credentials by achieving his Certificate Chef de Cuisine (CCC).
For 20 years, his Toronto restaurant Pangia was located at Bay and Bloor.
The Chef’s background is wine, “The Alton Mill is about the local experience, to experience the terroir.”
