Taste of Coastal Communities added to Fall Flavours
A new series of events have been added to the Fall Flavours Festival to celebrate the 10th year anniversary.
The Taste of Coastal Communities offers one-of-a-kind experiences in the most scenic corners of the Island, hosted by Canada’s top working chefs. Chef Michael Smith has partnered with Food Island Partnership for the new Taste of Coastal Communities Experiences to recruit what he knows to be the best of the best in Canadian chefs.
Taste of Historic Georgetown (September 7), Taste of Tyne Valley (September 21) and Taste of North Rustico (September 29) have been designed to take advantage of the coastal communities in which they are located.
Join Chef Paul Rogalski for a Taste of Georgetown. Rogalski is from Calgary Rouge and is the highest rated Canadian on the San Pellegrino global list. Experience the tastes and sites of Georgetown venues and restaurants—The Kings Playhouse, Georgetown Inn, Edens Gate, and Maroon Pig.
Chef Jesse Vergen is a Top Chef Canada All-Star and one of the few chefs who not only creates his meals, but invests in the hunting, foraging and raising of the dishes he creates. Vergen will join chefs from Tyne Valley to create a meal that showcases the town’s history in farming, fishing and shipbuilding while incorporating views of Tyne Valley.
Enjoy a traditional East Coast kitchen party featuring local chefs and Chefs Connie DeSousa and John Jackson. They co-own four restaurants including the award winning CHARCUT Roast House in Calgary. DeSousa is a Top Chef Canada All Star. “The Rustico Kitchen Party” is a traditional Island kitchen party style event inspired by our fishing community with grazing stations provided by North Rustico’s restaurateurs.
The Ultimate Chef’s Table will be hosted at the RiverShed in Oyster Bed Bridge. VIP guests can come together for the dinner party where celebrity Chef Corbin Tomaszeski and Sims Corner Chef Kyle Panton will host an exclusive, intimate culinary experience at PEI’s newest venue overlooking Rustico River. Guests will enjoy an interactive menu of fresh, local Island fare prepared table side with wine pairings by an in-house sommelier.
