The 2017 Culinary Apprenticeship Dinner

The 2017 Culinary Apprenticeship Dinner

On Wednesday, October 25th, young cooks from Fairmont Hotels in the Pacific Northwest region will strut their cooking stuff at the 13th Annual Culinary Apprenticeship dinner.

This year’s dinner theme, From Nose to Tail, pays homage to lesser known cuts over a six-course tasting menu that includes duck, sturgeon, pork, lamb, beef and bison.  Each tasting dish is paired with wine and includes three cuts to profile different flavours, textures and cooking methods. The culinary teams from each hotel have created dishes to illustrate their craft and profile the company’s passion for sustainable, seasonable ingredients and culinary partnerships in the area.
