Calgary Academy of Chefs Gala Dinner
Food is something we all interact with every day whether we think about it or not. At Great Events Catering, we always get excited about opportunities to showcase creativity, new concepts and fun ways to savour it. So why not push the envelope on the experience?
The annual Calgary Academy of Chefs & Cooks Holiday Gala Dinner offered one of these opportunities this past December. And, of course, Chef Daryl and his team would never skip a chance to take our culinary favourites to the next level.
Differentiating itself from previous years, this year’s dinner was served reception style with seven interactive food stations offering a different experience depending on its dish. Explore the menu below and enjoy the video featuring each station’s unique details.
