Celebrity Chefs of Canada

What excites a foodie more than seeing his/her favourite Chef creating something amazing on television? Seeing that happen right before your eyes! Foodies get set for the culinary adventure of your dreams right here in Ottawa with Celebrity Chefs of Canada Sunday, March 25th at the National Arts Centre. It promises to be a day filled to thrill the food community.

The brainchild of Executive Chef Michael Blackie of the NAC’s Le Cafe. This event pairs Ottawa’s amazingly talented Chefs with celebrity Chef talent from across the country. What a treat, an afternoon of demos, an evening of tasting, and an opportunity to extend the night with a private after-party where you can mingle with your favourites.
