The Calgary food scene has been cooking up some of the best chefs across the nation. As the the taste for quality food has swept across the West, us here at Fine Food Stop wanted to give back a little to some of the up and coming “chef to be’s”. Partnering with SAIT Culinary Campus, City Palate and Willow Park Wine & Spirits, we’ve created an ultimate cooking showdown; Chef to Be.
Execution and efficiency is key, as each group is given the order of 300 small tasting meals to serve with no knowledge of the ingredients given beforehand. With only four hours to produce the best results, the head chefs from Anju, Avec Bistro, Cannibale, the Post Hotel, River Cafe and Rouge,will put their reputations on the line as they fight for respect, and their student apprentices will compete for the reward of $5,000 in scholarship money from SAIT.
Not only will attendees be exposed to incredible culinary creations that the chefs will fuse together, but also wine and beer pairings, a taste of our local food and the honour of participating in Calgary’s rising culinary movement. With the goal of raising awareness for the booming food scene in Calgary, and the prominent SAIT culinary school, we believe in supporting a sustainable food industry in Calgary.
Participate in a silent auction for incredible prizes, sample incredible dishes these restaurants have to offer, vote for your choice of Calgary’s next Chef to Be and experience the intensity of a blackbox cooking competition like never before.
So join us at 5 PM this October 15 at the cooking capital of our city, the SAIT Culinary Campus, and help support the young culinary talent that is flourishing in our city.
