Canadian Celebrity Chefs Event

What are you doing Monday, January 24? I'll be at the Canadian Celebrity Chefs Event at Ottawa's NAC where 8 of Ottawa's top chefs will be paired with 8 celebrity chefs from across Canada. These chef pairs will be doing live cooking demonstrations followed by a time for Q&A. The day ends with an evening reception where we'll get to taste the creations from these culinary wizards, each dish paired with an appropriate wine.

Some of Ottawa's bloggers have come together to spread the word about the event and the chefs involved. I will be interviewing Michael Moffatt, Beckta Dining and Wine who will be paired with Anthony Walsh, Canoe in Toronto. And watch for information and interviews at these blogs:
