About the Chef

Chef Joan Brennan teaching at Covent Garden Market with Chef Fernanda Cerone

Chef Joan Brennan has been tickling the palates of Londoners since 1989 (and Torontonians before that since 1978). Her late and lamented Strange Angels Restaurant is remembered as a cutting edge place where customer comfort was paramount. Strange Angels not only provided alternatives, the philosophy was "If we've got it, you can have it!" Which meant clients could enjoy unlimited substitutions on the menu items, or even invent their own! Allergies and food preferences were respected and catered to. And the food was top notch. These philosophical ideas carry through to this day. The only difference? Chef Joan Brennan has retired after a successful catering career and has passed the torch of her catering legacy to Villa Cornelia Restaurant located at 142 Kent Street in Downtown London. In May 2017 William Komer purchased and gave re-birth to the Villa Cornelia Restaurant under the guidance of Chef Brennan. Her legacy of catering to the clients every culinary desire continues not only in the work of Elite Catering but also in the dining rooms every day at the Villa Cornelia Restaurant.
