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.

  • Capturing a zen moment at the Chiang Kai-shek memorial hall. I love this photo as it depicts the tranquility and serenity of the memorial ground provided by the hard working gardeners tending to their craft. #taiwan #memorial #chiangkaishek  #travelblogger #travelpics #chinese #chinessculture #tourism #foodblogger #nature #naturelover #zen #zenmoment #pictureperfect #perfecttiming #culture #presstrip #luxury  #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #travelinstyle #travelblogger #travelpics  #thefoodteasetravel #tripofalifetime #roc #republicofchina #chinesehistory #visittaiwan
  • Having more days in Taiwan than originally planned due to the #supertyphoon mangkhut, I had the chance to visit the beautiful grounds at the Chiang Kai-shek memorial hall. I learned so much about the man who was a political and military leader who served as the leader of the Republic of China between 1928 and 1975, first in mainland China until 1949 and then in exile in Taiwan. Chiang Kai-shek is the third-longest-ruling non-royal national leader since 1900 by term length (48 years, 46 days). 📷 @michaelpihach #taiwan #memorial #chiangkaishek #ruler #formerpresident #travelblogger #travelpics #chinese #chinessculture #tourism #foodblogger #culture #presstrip #luxury  #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #travelinstyle #travelblogger #travelpics  #thefoodteasetravel #tripofalifetime #roc #republicofchina #chinesehistory
  • What better way to view the Lantau Island on the way to see the majestic Big Buddha then by taking Asia's longest bi-cable ropeway. The bi-cable gives a 360 degree view of Lantau Island and provides the perfect sights that Hong Kong has to offer😍😍 #instatravel #nofearofheights

  • All throughout the exterior of the Po Lin Monastery, visitors can admire and be in awe of the highly detailed carvings that adorn the monastery. Insanely beautiful 😍 One can easily spend hours admiring and taking in the devout craft showcasing Buddhist iconography.  #zen #monastery #monks #prayer #hongkong #art #presstrip #luxury #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #travelblogger #travelpics  #thefoodteasetravel #travelinstyle #lovemyjob #epic #instatravel #bucketlist #pictureperfect #instatravel #budda #thefoodteasetravels #polinmonastery #monklife

  • I was fortunate to visit the Po Lin Monastery, one of Hong Kong’s most important Buddhist sanctums which has been dubbed ‘the Buddhist World in the South’. Home to many a devout monk, this monastery is rich with colourful manifestations of Buddhist iconography. #monastery #tiantan #zen #hongkong #presstrip #luxury #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #travelblogger #travelpics  #thefoodteasetravel #travelinstyle #lovemyjob #epic #bucketlist #pictureperfect #instatravel #budda #bucketlist #pray #thefoodteasetravels
