Last year, Tony Aspler’s brilliant charity, Grapes for Humanity, staged a mighty Tartare-off where professional and amateur chefs presented their most compelling tartares to a panel of judges, all to raise money to help build a school in Guatemala. The event was so successful that they’re doing it again, but this time the theme is Ontario lamb.
Baah! is the name of the game and it’s taking place at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 21st at the Fairmont Royal York, in the beautiful Imperial Room. I have no doubt it will be the lambiest fundraiser of the year and that spectacular wines will be poured alongside the highly creative lamb dishes presented by the competing chefs, David Neinstein of Barque, Ryo Ozawa of EDO, Graham Pelley of Eleven, Jeremy Dyer of L’Avenue Bistro, Alan Liu of Linda Modern Thai, Chef Michael Pataran, David Junek of Salt and Collin Thornton of the Fairmont Royal York itself.
All the details can be read on this handsome poster. What could be more deliciously appropriate than spring lamb so close to the vernal equinox? And all for such an excellent cause. Call Annette at 416 445 9920 to purchase your ticket.
