In 2004 she opened up Cafe Chartreuse with French trained Chef Patrick in downtown Collingwood. Many consider this Cafe to be the start of Collingwood’s emergence as a major culinary and craft beverage centre in Ontario.
In 2014 Ruth co-founded Chef Patrick’s Gourmet Foods. The delicious prepared meals, croissants and pain chocolat have set the standard for locally made food.
Ruth is also an experienced food & beverage consultant whose services range from menu development to commercial kitchen design to event management, such as Collingwood’s Whiskylicious festival.
