As part of its socio-culinary events series Women with Knives, the Phi Centre will host Slovenian chef Ana Roš, voted World’s Best Female Chef 2017 in The World's 50 Best Restaurants awards.
The evening will also feature chef Colombe St-Pierre of the critically acclaimed restaurant Chez St-Pierre in Rimouski. One of Quebec’s most respected culinary maestros, she feels the kitchen is a social hub and “a magical place where culture, history and tradition come alive.” Sociologist and author of Taking the Heat: Women Chefs and Gender Inequality in the Professional Kitchen, Deborah A. Harris will join the two chefs in discussing the challenges and obstacles for gastronomy au féminin in an industry consistently dominated by men. Their host for the evening will be another big name in gastronomy, Mitchell Davis, executive vice president of the James Beard Foundation in the United States.
Stay after the conversation...
The conversation will be followed by a diner cocktail presented by Les Femmes Chefs de Montréal. Hors-d'œuvres will be prepared and served by the collective and several Montreal chefs, including Dominique Dufour (Ludger + Magdalena), Stephanie Audet (LOV), Maurin Arellano (Centrale culinaire), Janice Tiefenbach (Elena) and Stéphanie Labelle (Pâtisserie Rhubarbe).
Guests will also have the chance some of the best original cocktails in town, prepared by bartenders Kate Boushel (Atwater Cocktail Club), Julie Cateysson (Ludger) and Val Chagnon (Nacarat), with the collaboration of Alambika. A not-to-be-missed event for the foodies!
