Nestled on the coast of beautiful Georgian Bay, Thornbury is a year-round culinary destination.

Chef Derek VanMeggelen, the Chef de Cuisine at Fabbrica Thornbury, travelled across Europe to explore different cuisines, where he realized his love for Italian and Mediterranean flavours. Driven by using the freshest ingredients, he created Fabbrica’s menu to showcase the simplicity of regional Italian fare.
