Chris Mathias has been riding bikes and creating great food since he was 15 years old.   The former Chef and owner of Innocenti (Toronto) and Chair de Poule (Paris) has cooked in several other fine restaurants in France, Canada and the UK and now he is back in the GTA.  Chris is now cooking at the new Cafe Domestique in Dundas, Ontario.  It’s a favorite stop for locals and Torontonians who venture West on their long weekend rides.  Chris recently created these gluten free fig, rosemary, chickpea and honey cookies and they are full of good, wholesome energy.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing. We have egg allergies and will look for an alternate recipe. Sounds so good.

  2. I had to convert to US measurements and substituted coconut oil for the butter to make them dairy-free. Came out pretty good! Thank you for sharing!
