Culinary Report by James Chatto by National Culinary Advisor
We left Edmonton a couple of hours after the triumphant Gold Medal Plates event there finished, rushing to the distant airport to catch the only flights (via Toronto) that would land us in St. John’s in time for our most eastern gala. The newly refurbished Convention Centre is vast and spiffy, offering ample elbow-room, and the party was a triumph. Our dazzling Master of Ceremonies, Olympian Heather Moyse, had the audience hanging on her every word, while the house band of Jim Cuddy, Anne Lindsay, Colin Cripps, Devin Cuddy and Sam Polley set them dancing in the aisles.
Thank you to the Gold Medal Plates sponsors and supporters who provide vital support to the project
