Meet Chef Gomes, Sherwood Inn's Executive Chef
With over 15 years of experience preparing culinary delights globally, Chef Gomes is no stranger in a kitchen. Born and raised in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Chef Gomes started honing his culinary skills at a young age under his father's guidance, who was also a chef. As Chef Gomes puts it, "my entire family is in the culinary industry; my father, uncle, cousin, brother-in-law... I've been fortunate to be surrounded by many talented chefs all my life, and the passion runs in my family."
Over the past 15 years, Chef Gomes has worked in various places worldwide, including Dubai, Djibouti (Africa), and Bermuda. This exposure to diverse cuisines has given Chef Gomes a unique perspective on the culinary arts. He takes pride in preparing fusion-style dishes that draw inspiration from his global experiences. Additionally, Chef Gomes has a keen interest in traditional French, Indian, and Italian dishes.
At Sherwood Inn, Chef Gomes uses fresh and local ingredients as much as possible. From creating seasonal delights using local Muskoka maple syrup, to sourcing fresh cranberries from Muskoka Lakes Farm and Winery just down the road. Regardless of the season, you can always expect to find many delicious and locally inspired items on Chef Gomes' menu here at Sherwood Inn.
