Joseph Wojakowski, The Hotel Fort Garry

Finding a spare moment of Joseph Wojakowski's time is like trying to capture a photo of lightning—blink and you'll miss it. "It's just that time of the year," he jokes. When the executive chef isn't orchestrating dishes for weddings up to 550 people, he's busy overseeing catering services for the hotel's many restaurants, lounges and ballrooms. Joseph (affectionately referred to by his staff as Chef Joe) had his first taste of the restaurant scene at age 16, developing his passion and talent at a Winnipeg steakhouse. "It was a busy environment. I learned a lot," he says. Chef Joe joined the staff at the Fort Garry in 1994, where he oversaw an ever-evolving menu and the expansion of catering services over the years. Fast forward to 2013 and he's one of the city's most highly respected chefs, with a team of about 45 people in a kitchen that spans the hotel's entire basement floor.

The Hotel Fort Garry offers a wide array of culinary options that are incredibly tantalizing. Staff from It’s Love recently attended the Hotel Fort Garry’s Centennial Party to mingle with guests and sample the hotel’s late night party offerings. The cooks at the carving stations worked with haste to ensure all guests were well supplied with baron of beef (the sauce was to die for!), smoked salmon served on top of dollar pancakes, gourmet cheese and bread assortments, fresh Manitoba panfried perogies, farmer sausage, beet pancakes, and much more. The tomato and bocconcini station offered guests an assortment of pesto, oil, and vinegar toppings; the sliders station provided guests with delicious miniature burgers, toppings, and crispy shoestring french fries.

The Hotel Fort Garry’s entreés include everything from poached lobster to duck confit, and brides may be pleasantly surprised to see an ever-growing number of vegan and vegetarian options that diverge from the more standard vegetarian options guests are often limited to in wedding receptions. Their reception dinner menu spans 28 pages in length, and the hotel has done an excellent job of ensuring that whatever your taste may be, they will have the perfect culinary experience waiting for you. After 100 years as Winnipeg’s premiere hotel, you can be sure that the Hotel Fort Garry can help you pull off your dream wedding.
