FALL HARVEST CELEBRATED WITH CHEF COLLABORATION IN SUPPORT OF BISSELL CENTRE
With harvest season in full swing, the City Market Downtown will be joined by five of Edmonton’s innovative culinary up-and-comers to host a fundraising event for Bissell Centre on Sunday, October 5.
Edmonton-based chefs have created a fall-harvest specific menu based on seasonal produce and proteins found exclusively at the City Market Downtown. The dinner, hosted at SABOR Restaurant, will include seafood direct from Iceland, farm-raised pork, beef and bison, as well as the freshest ingredients direct from market vendors.
“Bissell Centre is an organization near and dear to our vendors and customers,” says Dan Young, board chair of City Market Downtown. “With this exciting event, it makes sense for us to partner with some of the best and brightest in Edmonton’s food scene to organize a family-style harvest feast to raise funds and awareness for the important work being done at the Bissell Centre each day.”
Bissell Centre is one of Edmonton’s most important non-profit human services agencies. With its focus on elevating society’s most vulnerable out of poverty, Bissell Centre provides supports that range from child and family services and drop-in services to employment services and housing initiatives. The centre also feeds 500–700 individuals a day, translating to 140,000 meals annually.
The collaborative menu will be designed and executed by:
- Chef Bryan Cruz – The Marc
- Chef Edgar Gutierrez – Tres Carnales and Rostizado
- Chef Brayden Kozak – Three Boars Eatery
- Chef Adelino (Lino) Oliviera – SABOR Restaurant
- Chef Charla Padilla – Madison’s Grill
The harvest feast will also include special guest Chef Pierre Lamielle from Calgary, a recent Chopped Canada champion and Top Chef Canada competitor. He is co-owner of foodonyourshirt.com with partner Candace Bergman.
Only 70 seats are available for this exclusive event – purchase tickets at http://bissellcentre.org/falldinner/ today!
