Chefs for Change 2019 – Mid-Winter Dinner Series

Chefs for Change 2019.png

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Chefs for Change is back and you don’t want to miss a second of it.

In case you haven’t been in previous years, here’s how it works:

Over the course of four evenings, top chefs from across Canada come together to create an epic meal. It’s truly the best dinner party you’ll go to all year: 11-13 esteemed Canadian chefs whipping up a meal you won’t soon forget.

And that’s not even the best part. The Community Food Centres Canada event isn’t just a fun evening filled with great food. It’s a way to help others, to support empowering programs that change lives in low-income communities through food.

Top Canadian chefs coming together for a single night to prepare a unique five-course menu just for you? Swoon.
