RELÆ TEAM: DAVID GUNAWAN WELCOMES JONATHAN TAM OF COPENHAGEN’S RELÆ FOR GUEST CHEF DINNER AT FARMER’S APPRENTICE, JULY 19
Renowned locavore chef, David Gunawan, will write the latest chapter in his ongoing series of collaborative guest chef dinners at South Granville’s Farmer’s Apprentice when he shares the stage with Jonathan Tam of Michelin-starred Copenhagen restaurant Relæ on Wednesday, July 19.
Featuring two seatings at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., a limited number of tickets to the multi-course dinner — which also includes an amuse-bouche and dessert as well as wine pairings handpicked by Wine Director Kieran Fearing — are available for $150 per guest including tax and gratuity.
Canadian-born Tam hopped the pond in 2007 to take on the role of Chef de Partie at renowned Copenhagen eatery Noma before opening Michelin-starred restaurant Relæ under Chef-Owner Christian Puglisi in 2010.
