All funds from ticket sales are going towards Heloise's travel expenses as she travels to and from Quebec to audition for a French cooking competition show!
A Note from Heloise:
"I designed a menu that represents me as a young aspiring chef. My inspirations for this event were rooted in the best of Quebec products and cooking. As we are holding the event on St-Patrick's day, and that I do have Irish blood, there will also be some Irish notes in the flavour profile. It's going to be a cheerful celebratory night!
Supporting my candidacy through this fundraiser is a way to support and recognize PICA's educational mission through its intense but very sucessful culinary arts program. In the audition process, I'm facing off cooks that have been working in the industry for years.
Finally, it is one of the last meal prepared by our brigade. We are at the peak of our training and we are all hoping to offer a memorable dining experience"
