Join Fairmont Chateau Whistler for a collaborative culinary dinner on Sunday, November 12 with three of Canada’s top powerhouse female chefs lending their time and talent for a cause. The purpose of this event is two-fold; first and foremost, to raise money for cancer research, a cause that is deeply personal to all three chefs. And while doing so, highlight other women in the industry.
These chefs include Nicole Gomes, recent Top Chef Canada All-star winner; Melissa Craig, executive chef at Bearfoot Bistro; and Fairmont’s own executive chef, Isabel Chung. Each chef will oversee two mouth-watering courses, with a female apprentice chef sharing the spotlight on one of those. Nikki Callaway, acclaimed winemaker at Quails’ Gate, will not only be providing her wine for the event but also insight into her role in the industry. The wine program for the evening will be executed by two of British Columbia’s top sommeliers: Maryke Vandermarel from Bearfoot Bistro as well as B.C.’s 2016 Sommelier of the Year, Jill Spoor from Fairmont Pacific Rim.
It’s an intimate dinner at Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s Grill Room restaurant with only 50 seats available. All proceeds go toward the Canadian Cancer Society.
