In a profession traditionally dominated by men, Melissa Craig (the award-winning Executive Chef of Whistler’s Bearfoot Bistro) is a rarity and we’re thrilled to welcome her to the NAC for what will be a very special culinary event. Canada’s 2008 Gold Medal Plates Culinary Champion will create an extraordinary dinner of five courses, each of which will be paired with fine wines from British Columbia.

Chef Craig’s menu is best described as “modern Canadian cuisine” with a unique blend of West Coast and international ingredients, immaculate presentation and simple, yet passionate artistry. For food and wine enthusiasts, this is an evening not to be missed.

Seating for this event is at tables of eight.  Groups of eight who wish to reserve a table should call Catherine Rousseau at 613.947.7000, ext. 589 after purchasing tickets for the dinner.
