Counting down the days till the Canadian Culinary Championships roll into Ottawa. It all starts on Thursday January 30th, when 12 chefs from St John’s to Vancouver, champions in their cities’ competitions, will be paired up with their Algonquin College culinary students, handed a wad of cash for buying provisions to make a kick-ass dish, and a bottle of mystery wine that dish will be designed to pirouette with. No label on that wine bottle, the cork replaced… only its colour clear. And its provenance: it will be a Canadian wine.
I’m told the Grand Finale on Saturday night is now sold out, but that tickets remain for the Mystery Wine Pairing at the Aviation Museum on Friday January 31st. Join us! Details attached.
