The Canadian Chef’s Congress event started in 2008 in Singhampton, Ontario as an extraordinary gathering of chefs, wine makers, food producers and agricultural professionals as a way to celebrate Canadian food culture.
We’re proud to say not only that the third congress is happening here in Nova Scotia, but that our executive chef Luis Clavel will be a part of it. The event is taking place in the beautiful Annapolis Valley, at Land of Evangeline Campground in Grand Pre, and promises to showcase all that our province’s abundant landscape has to offer.
There are an array of culinary events that happen at the congress. And it’s not just for chefs – many are available to attend, through ticket purchase, to the public. If you’re a foodie, you don’t want to miss this.
The congress is when some of the best chefs in the country gather, work together, have fun with their food, and celebrate their talents and passions.
The weekend kicks off with a press conference on Sept. 15 at Fleur de Sel restaurant in Lunenburg.
Here’s highlights from the rest of the weekend…
