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.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 years 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.Edmonton’s dinner is set to take place at the vibrant CKUA Performance Hall on Saturday, September 29, 2018.Tickets are $140 which include a Big Rock Brewery cocktail hour with live music followed by a five course dinner created by the collaborating chefs with drink pairings or $175, which includes the addition of a limited edition Prairie Grid t-shirt.$10 from each custom t-shirt sold will go towards a local charity. As well, a silent auction will be set-up at the dinner, featuring a variety of custom wares featured throughout the Prairie Grid Dinner Series available for bidding.
