Photos: Cookies Unite with the Winnicki brothers

Me: “You’ve never met a pair like Mat and Alex Winnicki.”

You: “Promise?”

Me: “I promise!”


The Winnicki brothers always take care of you proper. Their flavours will lay you out. Once they got you, for sure they feed you.


Mommy Kim raised her sons right. She taught them to cook and to love food. You may have met one or both of these two over at Atwater Market. They have been selling product there on and off for years.


Alex is working with fruit and vegetables while Mat is cutting meat upstairs at Boucherie de Tours.


They are knees deep in Montreal. Each has done his share of work in quality establishments around the city.


Mat was the star of Olive + Gourmando, pounding lunches to hundreds of clients every day while Alex honed his service skills over at Mercedes.


To top it all, both are avid gardeners… SIGH.


The brothers graced Cookies Unite earlier this September for an authentic Singaporean street food presentation, something Montreal has never truly experienced.


Hawker food is their roots and their calling. Look out for these two lovelies they are going to change the Montreal food scene soon.
