The Alchemist


Mary Fabiano: The Wizard of “Oohs and Awes”

Mary Fabiano, Summer Kitchen’s alchemist, works her magic using pure, natural and simple ingredients to impart the big, bold and addictive flavours she has become known for. She starts with an enticing aroma, follows with ease of use and finishes this sensory experience with tastes that titillate. Notably, she is an award-winning chef and the one and only product developer for Summer Kitchen Fine Foods and her newest brand, Queen Mary.

Summer Kitchen is a 15 year young company with a vibrant outlook and positive philosophy. The company had its colourful origins in the mid-90s when Mary launched Summer Kitchen’s initial signature products. Among them were Sweet Horseradish and Banana Patch Jam. Fifteen years and 30 products later, she is still going strong developing and testing new products for flavour savvy consumers.


Every Summer Kitchen product has been crafted in her boutique manufactory, located in Toronto, using Mary’s proprietary recipes. Only the very best ingredients are selected for each Summer Kitchen recipe, assuring quality cooking enhancers anyone would be proud to serve.

The name Summer Kitchen refers to a separate kitchen built adjacent to the main house for canning and preserving and general cooking carried out during extreme, hot summer weather.  Continuing to pay tribute to the tradition of preserving, Summer Kitchen has chosen not to be defined by trends. Instead, it continues to be true to its vision, of, producing quality products using the purest and simplest ingredients in creating an extraordinary product line full of flavour, imagination and heart that everyone enjoys.
