Chef An­ton cooks up a cel­e­bra­tion in Canada

The Philippine Star - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

Chef An­ton Amon­cio, one of the Philip­pines’ ris­ing, young culi­nary celebri­ties, is cur­rently in Canada to par­tic­i­pate in Let it Snow, a show­case of Cana­dian crafts­man­ship and the unique qual­i­ties of the win­ter ad­van­tage. This is in line with the cel­e­bra­tion of Canada 150, which is the 150th found­ing an­niver­sary of Canada.

Chef An­ton’s trip was made pos­si­ble through the Culi­nary Ex­change pro­gram of the Canada Beef Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence. This is in part­ner­ship with the famed Fair­mont Chateau Lake Louise.

Canada Beef and Fair­mont’s se­ries of culi­nary events cel­e­brate Canada’s food iden­tity and what is unique about their ex­cep­tional homegrown in­gre­di­ents, hav­ing been shaped by the in­flu­ences of Canada it­self.

Chef An­ton’s visit is the cul­mi­na­tion of Canada Beef’s Canada 150 cel­e­bra­tions this year. Three events have taken place at iconic Cana­dian lux­ury re­sorts, high­light­ing the sea­sons of Canada at the Fair­mont Banff Springs in early sum­mer, Fair­mont Royal York Toronto in har­vest sea­son, and now Chateau Lake Louise for win­ter.

It is in this idyl­lic set­ting that Chef An­ton will present his own recipes us­ing the best qual­ity Canada beef. This in­cludes Beef Mor­con Slid­ers, Bis­tek on Green Onion Bli­nis and Beef Shor­tribs Sini­gang in Green Mango. He will be joined by Ex­ec­u­tive Chef JeanFran­coise Fortin, who will also be pre­sent­ing his own Canada Beef recipes.

Cana­dian beef is a highly val­ued and re­spected prod­uct by chefs world­wide for its unique ad­van­tages and con­sis­tent qual­ity and fla­vor.
