Chef Anton cooks up a celebration in Canada
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.
