Canada’s Great Kitchen Party
Regional Qualifier for the Canadian Culinary Championships
On October 30th, 2019 over 500 guests enjoyed an evening of elevation and celebration of Canadian culture in food, sport and music. The chefs came both to compete for their chance to be on the podium and to share their creative talent with the guests. Over 45 athletes from amateur, para and pro sports shared their stories, including emcee Jon Montgomery and guests were on the dance floor enjoying the performance of some of Canada’s great musicians – Jim Cuddy, Barney Bentall, Bill Henderson, Geoffrey Kelly, Anne Lindsay, Devin Cuddy and Sam Polly! It was an inspiring and impactful experience as the city united to provide Canadian youth the opportunity to be extraordinary in food, music and sport.
We are proud to support Community Food Centres Canada, MusiCounts and B2ten.
