Prairie Grid Dinner Series - From Dawn to Dusk

Prairie Grid Dinner Series - From Dawn to Dusk Dates / Times 2018-09-27 to 2018-09-27 (18:30 to 22:21) Organization Eat North Type Single Day Community Al Azhar Shriners Fezdome Calgary, ABT3L 1S4 587.999.9638 This fall, Eat North will present its 2018 Prairie Grid Dinner Series: From Dawn to Dusk — an innovative experience that, for a second year in a row, will see a new line-up of talented chefs collaborate on unique dinners in four cities across three provinces. The five-course dinner events will showcase locally harvested ingredients, regional cuisine, but also offer an immersive art experience for guests as well as one-of-a-kind creations, designed specifically for attendees of the traveling series to engage with, taste and sip. Participating chefs include JP Pedhirney (Bridgette Bar, Calgary); Steve Brochu (Chartier, Beaumont); Thayne Robstad and Beth Rogers (Hearth, Saskatoon); Mike Robins (Sous Sol, Winnipeg); and Jessica Young (Elements, Winnipeg). Each dinner event will consist of five courses developed collaboratively by the team of chefs. This year's inspiration is the rising and setting of the sun, an artistic homage to the farmers who work from the early hours of the morning to late at night during harvest season. Both the food and visual art installations set-up during each dinner is meant to reflect the spectacular beauty of experiencing dawn to dusk in the Canadian Prairies. Calgary's dinner is set to take place at the stunning Calgary Shrine Centre on Thursday, September 27, 2018. Tickets are $140 which include a Big Rock Brewery cocktail hour with live music by Amy Thiessen followed by a five course dinner created by the collaborating chefs with drink pairings or $175, which includes the addition of a limited edition Prairie Grid t-shirt. $10 from each custom t-shirt sold will go towards Skipping Stone Foundation. As well, a silent auction will be set-up at the dinner, featuring a variety of custom wares featured throughout the Prairie Grid Dinner Series available for bidding. The proceeds from these auction items will also go to the same charity. Join the conversation on Instagram and Twitter using the dinner series hashtags: #Prairie Grid 2018 and #proudtobeprairie. .
