1240 8 AVE SE
Join us Sunday, September 15th at Rouge restaurant for an evening of culinary mastery. Set to be the gastronomic event of the year, explore the YYC food scene with chef innovators and perfectionists who will share their talents and tales of trial, exploration and perfection.
The magic of this eight-course event is in the all-star lineup of culinary creators. Each chef has been nominated by their peers for their excellence in mastering a unique aspect of the gastronomic sphere, and in turn that chef nominating the next, building a hand-picked team of the cream of the crop. Each chef creates their own specialty, by their own rules, and matches it to an iconic beverage. It will be a night of pure delight!
The afternoon begins with action stations in the picturesque gardens (weather dependent), followed by a sit down multi-course menu while the chefs entertain us with their stories of trials and triumph. Expertly paired premium libations from global brands will delight the palate to round out the evening.
Tickets are limited for this intimate and interactive culinary experience with Calgary's master creators. Don't miss your chance to by a part of the magic!
Tickets include a welcome cocktail (made with Herradura Tequila) and premium drink pairings with each course.
Proudly supported by Pratts Food Service
