Ottawa’s Very Own Modern Botanical Dinner Party!

By on May 25, 2018

What do you get when you combine a love for Mother Nature’s creations and the culinary creativity of a top executive chef in one of Ottawa’s most sought-after venue? Well…you get treated to an intimate botanical-inspired gastronomical experience!

Lately, Ottawa has been buzzing with unique culinary and wine events that are drawing much interest from all demographics – from millennials for their Instagram selfie moments to those that simply enjoy the experience for what it is. Nonetheless, one thing is certain, Ottawa is in for a treat with this truly new concept of dining in elegance.

Dinner4Four Co. who brought us Soirée (the domed dinners by the famed canal) are now coming inside to give guests another tantalizing evening that we have yet to experience in Ottawa.

The perfect recipe for an elegant outing has to meet certain ‘musts’ and the “Modern Botanical” evening has them all! Guests will be mesmerized by the 100% botanical-inspired theme in the newly transformed National Arts Centre and feel ready to let loose as they are entertained by live music from The Commotions, a 12 piece Funk/Soul/Motown band from Ottawa featuring both Rebecca Noelle and Jeff Rogers.

 

Now the Food

This is always my favourite part of an event – seeing and tasting the gourmand creations that we will be spoiled with throughout the evening. Guests will be elated to hear that the four-course meal will be headed by the NAC’s very own Executive Chef Kenton Leier.

At their new Hummingbird Chocolate location (476 Ottawa St. Almonte), you can now reserve a private tour and see how all that chocolate yumminess comes together.

Being one with nature in @discoverdominica 🌴🌴💧🔥
Who loves hot springs? I know I do, as they are incredibly relaxing and therapeutic🔥😍
.
Relaxing in one of Wotten Waven's well-known natural hot sulfur springs, which are believed to have medicinal qualities, was incredible!! The hot sulphuric water is mixed with river water, so it's not only tolerable but that it doesn't burn the skin. Complete relaxation!!
.
When traveling to new destinations, I try to immerse myself in cultural experiences, and this hot sulfur dip in Dominica was a must😍🤩
