Wellington Court Restaurant Team


Erik Peacock grew up around the food business. An early exposure to the food business, paired with the beautiful bounty of the Niagara food and wine region, shaped Erik’s future as a chef. After spending time in Australia Erik returned to Ontario where he attended George Brown College in Toronto for Culinary Arts. Upon his return the wine and food scene in Niagara was emerging. This opportunity delighted Erik. He formed relationships with winemakers and winery owners as well as local food producers. They inspired Erik to create a menu focused on local ingredients infused with international flavours.  He is always reaching for perfection in and out of the kitchen.

Chef Tyler Heath was born and raised in Niagara Falls and has seen the region transform from a simple tourist destination to a booming culinary scene. His journey in the culinary industry began in his hometown, where he worked in franchise restaurants. During his time studying at Niagara College, he completed a co-op at a 30-year old institution called Casa Mia Ristorante, where he worked as a prep cook. He feels, however, that he did not really begin to understand what food meant to him until he went abroad. He took a hiatus from his studies to travel the world; he spent some time in Lake Louise, Alberta, but most notable was his time spent in Southeast Asia and Europe. From Gaggan in Bangkok, recognized as one of Asia’s best restaurants, to street stalls in Northern Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar – he spent a year traveling and staging across Southeast Asia. In the chapter to follow, he would spend much of his time in Germany and Italy, indulging in the foods of the region. One of the places that inspired him the most is Bressanone, or Brixen, a small town in Northern Italy at the border of Austria. This is where his wife’s family is from, and it is a curious cultural mix of Italian, Austrian and German influence. He regards this as one of “the best places in the world”. At the close of this adventure, he returned to Canada to finish culinary school. Shortly thereafter, he worked at Treadwell’s as Sous Chef, now in Niagara on the Lake, and also opened a couple of breweries. He later spent some time in Hamilton, Ontario, where he worked at Quatrefoil and Brux House, before landing in St. Catherine’s where he is now Head Chef of Wellington Court. Wellington Court is a staple of its community and has been around for 30 years. Throughout this time, the space has seen many different lives inspired by the chefs that have passed through its’ kitchen. Today, Chef Tyler hopes to bring his own personal touch to this chapter a Wellington Court, where he combines the global influence of his travels and passion for supporting local as best he can.
