Harriet Clunie
Harriet Clunie
Harriet’s interest in cooking was sparked at age six while watching an episode of
Today’s Special, after which she turned her parents’ kitchen into a “restaurant” called
“The Starlite Kaffae” and cooked them breakfast.
Since completing her Culinary Management degree at Algonquin College with honours
in 2007 Harriet has worked in many prominent Ottawa kitchens, been mentored by
some of this city’s great chefs, including Matt Carmichael at restaurant ei8hteen, Jamie
Stunt at Oz Kafe, Steve Mitton at Murray Street, Warren Sutherland at Sweetgrass
Aboriginal Bistro and Rene Rodriguez at Navarra, where she was Chef de Cuisine.
Harriet was chef at Das Lokal before taking her current position with Executive Chef
Micheal Radford and the talented crew at Elmdale Oyster House and Tavern.
Harriet’s love and passion is for cooking and learning everything she can about food.
She believes in cooking straightforward dishes that focus on execution, texture,
balance and the finish on the palate. Harriet also believes in what she calls total
utilization and is a supporter of local farmers and businesses.

What would people be surprised to find in
your kitchen?
Ten varieties of hot sauce, I love hot sauce.
The place is burning down; you can only
grab three things from the kitchen.
My knives, the tamis and the chinois.
Favourite guilty pleasure?
Ramen noodles, any kind! My favourite things
in the world are noodles and dumplings from
any country.
What is your motto?
Total utilization.To use every part of the
ingredient you are working with, be it animal
or vegetable, and find innovative ways of
incorporating them into a dish
What do you value most in a cook?
I value hunger for knowledge. You can’t teach
someone something if they don’t want to learn.
You need
on a desert island?
Eggs. They are versatile and full of protein.
Provided I’ve learned to make prehistoric
cookware. And fire.
