Chef Bio – Chef Norman Day


He began his career at the age of nineteen in Newfoundland by opening his first restaurant, a very successful pizzeria, which he operated for a number of years. However, Norman wanted to move forward. He enrolled in the Culinary Institute of Canada in Charlottetown, PEI to further his career. After graduation, he worked As Executive Chef at the Historical Shaw’s Hotel in Prince Edward Island for 12 seasons. He then went on to work as Executive Chef for 2 years at a beautiful seaside restau
rant in Georgetown, called Clam Diggers, and then he spent 1 year as Executive Chef at the Charming Atlantic Lure, nestled inside Fox Meadow Golf and Country Club in Stratford. His goal as a chef is to bring fresh, local food back to the table for everyone to enjoy! Norman is very excited to be back on the North Shore of PEI, which is where his career began 15 years ago. He has made his home in Mermaid, PEI with his lovely wife Kimberley, along with their two sons, Blake and Parker.
