Ottawa chef Michael Blackie is again indulging his flair for showmanship and love of collaboration.
At his Stittsville restaurant, NeXT, he’ll stage eight events this year that will each feature two out-of-town chefs joining him in the kitchen to prepare elaborate dinners, and each dinner will be preceded by cooking demonstrations from each chef.
The first “three chefs/one dinner” event of this year is to be held Wednesday, April 12. Seven more dinners will be held in 2017, monthly on a Wednesday, except in December.
“We’ve got chefs of all different styles coming,” Blackie says. “The basic premise is get them together and expose Ottawa to chefs that most people might never get to meet or see or taste.”
