Culinary Trio At NeXT Restaurant

By on April 24, 2016

Having one chef give an interactive cooking show is one thing. Having two energetic chefs showcase their talent and skill set as they talk about their dishes in front of food lovers is another thing…but having three chefs do this, is taking it to a whole new level!

In less than two weeks, the NeXT restaurant will be engaging all their guests’ senses with their ‘3 Chef’s One Dinner’ series. It isn’t often that guests have the opportunity to be part of such a culinary soirée.

Executive Chef Michael Blackie of NeXT Restaurant, situated in the West End of Ottawa in Stittsville, has devised a unique concept for us food lovers. He has created an interesting evening where guests will not only enjoy dishes from his creative culinary mind, they will also witness the culinary creations from two other well known chefs.

Chef Ted Reader aka the “Godfather of the Grill’ and Chef Christian Pritchard from “chriscooking”, both hailing from Toronto, will be working in conjunction with host Chef Blackie to give their guests a very unique, engaging and collaborative evening.

It’s looking to be an unforgettable evening that will start with guests having the opportunity to mingle and chat with the three chefs as they indulge in some cocktails and canapés. This will be followed by very entertaining food demonstrations – I have attended some demos with these chefs in the past – very entertaining to say the least.

And the pièce de resistance…the dinner service where guests will be enjoying the chefs’ creations tailored specifically for this special event.

Now, just to tease us a little, Chef Blackie was generous enough to provide the event’s menu.

The stunningly beautiful Trafalgar Falls, located in the Trois Piton National Park!!😍😍

These famous twin waterfalls are a 20-minute drive from Dominica's capital, Roseau. It's a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path to the viewing platform, where you can photograph both falls.

Fun fact: The smaller waterfall has cool refreshing water, whereas the tall one is a hot spring.💧🔥

Dominica's natural beauty is endless!!😍
After some incredible snorkeling in Toucari Bay with @wanderlustcaribbean we needed some well deserved substance to refuel our bodies! 🤿🐟🐠🏝
The Keep'in It Real restaurant was the ideal eatery for some tasty snapper 🐟 with all its delicious trimmings (local greens, fried plantains, fritters with some rice and beans). 
To wash it all down, some local Rum with passion fruit juice 😋 🍹
This is what experiencing a new destination should be like...amazing adventures, delicious food and connecting with like-minded enthusiasts!!😍🤗
