Time To Party!

- Janet P. Boileau PUBLISHER

THERE'S SOME EXCITING news from the capital — the Canadian Culinary Championsh­ips are moving to Ottawa!

In the past the annual competitio­n to identify Canada's best chef has taken place in Kelowna, BC as the culminatio­n of Canada's Great Kitchen Party, the nationwide qualifying competitio­ns that take place during the fall.

I have the honour (and immense pleasure) of being part of the judging panel for the Ottawa round of Canada's Great Kitchen Party, which takes place on November 19 this year. Last year we unanimousl­y agreed that Chef Yannick LaSalle of Les Fougères restaurant in Gatineau deserved the gold medal in our town and we were ecstatic when he went on to take first place on the podium in Kelowna. LaSalle will be joining the Ottawa judges in November when we decide who will be representi­ng our city in the next Canadian Culinary Championsh­ips. In that intense competitio­n, twelve goldmedal winning chefs will take part in three competitio­ns over two days, January 31 to February 1, 2020.

Canada's Great Kitchen Party supports three national charities — Community Food Centres Canada, B2Ten and MusicCount­s — that promote food security, elite athletes' developmen­t, and musical education for children, respective­ly. It is a celebratio­n of three pillars of Canadian culture — music, sport and food.

Bring it on!
