Unique Chef’s Table Opportunity

November 20, 2018

Experience a five-course meal prepared by two young chefs who are preparing for national competition. Click on the heading of this email to read all the details.

Two Red River College culinary students, Argie Garcia (Apprentice Level 2) and Anthony Carino (Term 6 Culinary Arts) have been selected to compete at the Young Chefs Challenge in Toronto on January 27, 2019. The competitors have three hours to make a three-course meal that showcases creativity, taste and kitchen organization.

These students were selected by the competition committee for their prior competition experience and constant pursuit of professionalism within the culinary industry.  The Young Chef’s Challenge in Toronto has only six competitors from across Canada, so having two Manitobans qualify is very exciting! The winning competitor in Toronto will have the honor of representing Canada’s culinary scene on the world stage in 2020 in Saint Petersburg, Russia at the World Chefs Congress.

As these students will need to pay all of their own expenses, they will be hosting four separate Chef’s Table dinners as fund raisers. The dinners will be hosted in the Apprenticeship Lab at the PGI School of Hospitality & Culinary Arts at 504 Main Street. There are only 12 seats available each evening. (One person need not buy all twelve seats as it will be a communal table filled with fellow food lovers.)

The five-course menu will reflect what Anthony and Argie hope to accomplish in Toronto with some added flair to complete the experience!

Pricing:  $120 with beverage pairing

Dates: Bookings still available for November 26 & 27, 2018 and January 8, 2019. Dinners will start at 6:30pm

For booking your seat or more information please contact Apprenticeship Instructor Gordon Bailey at gbailey30@rrc.ca
