Did you always want to be a chef? 

"No, I was athletic as a teenager, so the natural path was Kinesiology, which I initially perused in University, but I always loved to cook.  My Grandmother and I would bake together all the time, starting when I was very little. I would sit in front of the stove on a little chair and watch our chocolate chip cookies rise…. Pure magic!!"- Chef Jo Lusted

The event

Go Gourmet is an upscale foodie night out featuring local cooking by top Canadian chefs. The evening starts with a cocktail reception where appetizers made from recipes created by our chefs will be served.

The sit-down meal follows — a tasting menu with small tasting plates designed by celebrity and award winning chefs. Wine pairing will be enjoyed with each tasting plate. During dinner each chef tells about the inspiration behind the meal, and offers some tips for “homechefs” wanting to re-create the dishes. The evening wraps up with a dessert reception. Guests have a chance to mingle with the chefs, taste delectable treats, and bid on unique silent auction items.
