Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find an evening full of food, performance and secret agents. Luckily, you need to look no further than the 2017 Chefs’ Gala and Showcase.
Next weekend (Sat. Feb. 11th) Prairieland Park will be the site of the eighth annual celebration. It’s a chance for the audience to be thrown head first into the world of the double agent as they enjoy culinary masterpieces by some of our city’s top chefs.
In between courses, as the audience rests and digests, they will go undercover with performers from Live Five Theatre Independent Theatre, Little Opera On the Prairie and the Ritornello Chamber Music Festival in this spy themed event.
“When we pick a theme, we go all out!”
“When we pick a theme, we go all out,” exclaims LOOP’s artistic director Anastasia Winterhalt. “This evening is always full of laughter as you see how the performers deal with the subject matter through theatre and music performances.”
This year think Bond, James Bond as the chefs, actors and musicians all dealve into the world of the secret agent. This gala is a celebration of local chefs, as they recognize each other with awards but it’s also a fundraiser. It raises money for local arts groups and helps them stage shows throughout the year.
Many of the chefs are seasoned pros, like Anthony McCarthy (Saskatoon Club) and Chris Hill (Delta Bessborough) but there are also students thrown into the mix. Junior chefs from Saskatchewan Polytechnic will be working alongside the experts to help prepare the seven course meal.
“For these students, it’s a chance to learn from the masters here in the city at a high level event.” Winterhalt says, “You just can’t beat that trial by fire opportunity to work alongside award-winning chefs.”
