Slow Food Nova Scotia is back with its third annual Spring Supper. Billed as the down home, no fuss, culinary event of the season, this year’s dinner will feature 11 of the region’s top chefs working together to bring you a staggering seven-course, locally-sourced Nova Scotian church supper unlike any other. All courses will be paired with Nova Scotian wines. Local food producers, brewers, vintners and foodies alike will round out this incredible evening.
Participating chefs/restaurants include: Craig Flinn (Chives Canadian Bistro), Dennis Johnston (Fid Resto), Roland Glauser (Charlotte Lane Café), Renée Lavallée (The Feisty Chef), Chris Velden (The Flying Apron Cookery), Jason Lynch (Le Caveau), Earlene Busch (Chanterelle Country Inn), Martin Ruiz Salvador (Fleur de Sel), Luis Clavel (Atlantica Hotel) as well as Zane Kelsall and Tara MacDonald (Two If By Sea Café). This is a remarkable volunteer effort as all the chefs, servers and organizers donate their time and work collectively towards spreading the Slow Food ethos of good, clean and fair local food for all.
This event, presented by Slow Food Nova Scotia, is sponsored by Taste of Nova Scotia and Wines of Nova Scotia. It is organized in support of the Canadian Chefs’ Congress and Slow Food International’s 1000 Gardens in Africa Project. The dinner is open to the public.
