Canadian Flavours Gala to Celebrate Canadian Food & Wine on April 30th

 Make space in your schedule for the Canadian Flavours Gala at Terminal City Club on Thursday, April 30 2015.


Guests will enjoy an evening with 15 chefs from some of Canada’s best-known restaurants, sampling delicious Canadian cuisine paired with spring releases from the Naramata Bench Wineries Association.


There is an impressive roster of critically acclaimed chefs and their restaurants participating at the event.  It includes Andrew Winfield of Calgary’s River Café, Nicholas Nutting of Tofino’s Wolf in the Fog (chosen by Enroute as Canada’s number one restaurant), and Jeremie Bastien of Montreal’s Restaurant Leméac.  


From Toronto, both Jesse Grasso of The Black Hoof – known for attracting movie stars to its nightly lineup – and Nick Liu of newly opened DaiLo will participate.  


 Two alumni from Food Network Canada’s Top Chef, Carl Heinrich (Toronto’s Richmond Station) and Connie DeSousa (Calgary’s Charcut Roast House), will also attend.  Executive Chef Ryan O’Flynn from the Westin Edmonton will recreate his winning dish from the 2015 Canadian Gold Medal Plates chef competition.


Local participants include Executive Chef Ned Bell from The Four Seasons’ YEW seafood + bar, Eric Pateman of Edible Canada and Bella Gelateria’s hand-made gelato, named the best in the world at the international gelato competition held in Florence, Italy.  


The evening will include an exclusive Silent Wine Auction benefitting Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise™ sustainable seafood program, which will also receive partial proceeds from the evening.
