The Prairie Grid Dinner Series: Innovation - Calgary

The Prairie Grid Dinner Series: Innovation - Calgary Dates / Times 2019-09-19 to 2019-09-19 (18:30 to 22:00) Organization Eat North Type Single Day Community 1900 Heritage Dr. S.W.Calgary, ABT2V 2X3 We are happy to announce the return of our much-celebrated Prairie Grid Dinner Series for fall 2019. Back for its third year, this year's dinner series has an all-new chef lineup and will focus on the theme of innovation. Chefs Christine Sandford (Biera, Edmonton), Scott Redekopp (Yellow Door Bistro, Calgary), Chris Gama (Clementine, Winnipeg), Katelin Bland (Lulu Bar, Calgary) and Bryn Rawlyk (The Night Oven and Darkside Donuts, Saskatoon) will collaborate on a menu that highlights the technological evolution of culinary practices over the past century. Whether it's experiencing a technique such as stone-grinding heritage grains and using wood-burning ovens for sourdough loaves or sous vide to caramelize rich dairy from Saskatchewan's Sunnyside Creamery for a dessert, diners will have a delicious meal created with Prairie-grown ingredients while watching each course evolve in complexity. To further involve the chefs in the creative process, Eau Claire Distillery worked with them to create the botanical combination for our 2019 Prairie Grid Dinner Series gin. The new custom release's botanical mix includes dandelion, haskap berries and rose hips, and will be available to purchase in limited quantities at select Alberta liquor stores starting August 29. Porter's Tonic has matched this new and unique gin with a tart and herbaceous sour cherry tonic syrup. As well, Saskatchewan's Living Sky Winery has created a custom sparkling rhubarb wine specifically for the dinner series. The fruit winery's first bubbly creation will make its debut in September. The Prairie Grid Dinner Series, which began in fall 2017, is Canada's only travelling pop-up restaurant and celebrates all aspects of Prairie food and creative culture. By involving some of the region's top chefs, artists, fashion designers and makers, the series organizer, Dan Clapson, is especially excited for the series' third annual run. . Event Details.
