Culinary Trio At NeXT Restaurant

By on April 24, 2016

Having one chef give an interactive cooking show is one thing. Having two energetic chefs showcase their talent and skill set as they talk about their dishes in front of food lovers is another thing…but having three chefs do this, is taking it to a whole new level!

In less than two weeks, the NeXT restaurant will be engaging all their guests’ senses with their ‘3 Chef’s One Dinner’ series. It isn’t often that guests have the opportunity to be part of such a culinary soirée.

Executive Chef Michael Blackie of NeXT Restaurant, situated in the West End of Ottawa in Stittsville, has devised a unique concept for us food lovers. He has created an interesting evening where guests will not only enjoy dishes from his creative culinary mind, they will also witness the culinary creations from two other well known chefs.

Chef Ted Reader aka the “Godfather of the Grill’ and Chef Christian Pritchard from “chriscooking”, both hailing from Toronto, will be working in conjunction with host Chef Blackie to give their guests a very unique, engaging and collaborative evening.

It’s looking to be an unforgettable evening that will start with guests having the opportunity to mingle and chat with the three chefs as they indulge in some cocktails and canapés. This will be followed by very entertaining food demonstrations – I have attended some demos with these chefs in the past – very entertaining to say the least.

And the pièce de resistance…the dinner service where guests will be enjoying the chefs’ creations tailored specifically for this special event.

Now, just to tease us a little, Chef Blackie was generous enough to provide the event’s menu.

  • In the country known for its 🍫, it was only fitting to go and discover a new up and coming chocolatier in Switzerland. @laflor_zurichocolatier works closely with several organic farms in Brazil, Ecuador and Venezuela to create their delicious chocolate line. 😍😍
They are truly a bean to bar business that pays homage to their culture. La Flor has incorporated Zurich's past silk trade industry into their name, as Zurich was well known for the production of a black silk fabric called Flor. 
Workshops and tasty sensory tasting experiences are offered at their location😋 #chocolate #swissechocolate #cocao #cocaobean #travelblogger #travelpics #instatravel #waunderlust #foodie #foodblogger #sweets #zurich #visitzurich #inlovewithswitzerland #nomnom #fairtrade #foodporn #chocolatenibs #instafood #sweetlife
