This fall, Eat North will present its 2018 Prairie Grid Dinner Series: From Dawn to Dusk — an innovative experience that, for a second year in a row, will see a new line-up of talented chefs collaborate on unique dinners in four cities across three provinces. The five-course dinner events will showcase locally harvested ingredients, regional cuisine, but also offer an immersive art experience for guests as well as one-of-a-kind creations, designed specifically for attendees of the traveling series to engage with, taste and sip.

The 2018 Prairie Grid Dinner Series kicks off in Calgary on Thursday, Sept. 27at the Calgary Shrine Centre and continues with stops in Edmonton on at the  CKUA Performance Hall on Saturday, Sept. 29, Saskatoon on Tuesday, Oct. 2and Winnipeg on Thursday, Oct. 4. A limited number of 110 tickets to each of the dinners are available for $140, or $175 which includes a limited-edition Prairie Grid custom T-shirt.

Participating chefs include JP Pedhirney (Bridgette Bar, Calgary); Steve Brochu (Chartier, Beaumont); Thayne Robstad and Beth Rogers (Hearth, Saskatoon); Mike Robins (Sous Sol, Winnipeg); and Jessica Young(Elements, Winnipeg). Each dinner event will consist of five courses developed collaboratively by the team of chefs. This year, the series will also include a travelling bar manager, Adrian Chappell of Saskatoon’s celebrated eateries: The Hollows and Primal.

This year’s inspiration is the rising and setting of the sun, an artistic homage to the farmers who work from the early hours of the morning to late at night during harvest season. Both the food and visual art installations set-up during each dinner is meant to reflect the spectacular beauty of experiencing dawn to dusk in the Canadian Prairies.

More information and tickets to the Prairie Grid Dinner Series taking place in Calgary on Sept. 27, Edmonton on Sept. 29, Saskatoon on Oct. 2 and Winnipeg on Oct. 4 are available for Calgary here and Edmonton here.
