the madness, revisited.

I never imagined the chef made bandannas would ever take off.

It’s viral.

It’s the same feeling after cooking a service and flipping the restuarant 3 times.

Amazing and amazing.

First off the response – from grandmas to grandpas, uncles, aunts, mothers, cousins and all the family in between – after exposed to mise en gear, have found a relative that needs it.

Not wants – but needs.

Two years ago when I knew that I needed to wear a bandanna that I loved I never thought that someone else would too. Proven wrong with stride.

Enough back patting – what does it mean?

Firstly – the most badass cooking outfitter in Ottawa is proudly representing the mise -C. A. Paradis –  the Grandma is the entrance welcomer. 

Secondly I’ve been overtaken for the first time by in sales versus the lets go to my locker model – Branson never had luck with that with Virgin either.

Thirdly the buzz and impact the you all have made has drawn an incredible rank of people willing to help me help you – and it couldn’t be more well received.

All of life is still a maniacs run to the loonie bin, but the guidelines are getting closer on point.


Have a good service,





I’d rather have a beer with a fisherman.




a few new designs…

oyster bandanna


Ive been playing with more and more images, making designs for bandannas as well as Tees.

occy and ss crab

The first is the oysters (east coast) with the shucker the boys made me at WBOH.

The second is a few things I thought looked cool together; occy, soft shell crab and chopsticks.

Enjoy long turkey weekend everyone!

out for now,


you can’t stop the funk.

wboh custom shucker

I just finished shucking oysters for a friends wedding on saturday.  It was a beautifull event, in the bride and grooms backyard complete with a trailer that could cater 120 through sliding doors – think chipwagon on steriods.  The guys that supplied us with the oysters also threw in a few trademarks; hand grinded, well honed, badass shuckers.  By far the cheapest, best, and coolest shucker I’ve ever used.  It inspired me to put together a design for the good lads at the WBOH.

Thanks guys.
