Fairmont’s Chef Isabel Chung Hosts Canada’s Finest Culinary Talent for Collaborative Fundraiser

Fairmont Chateau Whistler Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Fairmont Chateau Whistler today announced a collaborative culinary dinner with three of Canada’s top powerhouse female chefs lending their time and talent for a cause. These chefs include Nicole Gomes, recent Top Chef Canada All-star winner and owner of Cluck N Cleaver; Melissa Craig, executive chef at Bearfoot Bistro; and Isabel Chung, executive chef at Fairmont Chateau Whistler. The event, aptly named ‘ELLEvate TogetHER’, takes place on Sunday, November 12.

“The purpose of this dinner is two-fold,” states Chef Chung. “First and foremost, to raise money for cancer research, a cause that is deeply personal to Nicole, Melissa, and me.  And while doing so, highlight other women in the industry, particularly our up-and-coming female apprentices.”    

The female leadership doesn’t end in the kitchen. Nikki Callaway, acclaimed winemaker at Quails’ Gate, will not only be providing her wine for the event but also insight into her role in the industry. The wine program for the evening will be executed by two of British Columbia’s top sommeliers: Maryke Vandermarel from Bearfoot Bistro and Jill Spoor from Fairmont Pacific Rim.

An intimate dinner with only 50 seats available, tickets are certain to sell out quickly. The event starts with a reception at 6:00 pm followed by dinner at 6:45 pm. Priced at CAD $279 per ticket plus tax (gratuities included), all proceeds go toward the Canadian Cancer Society. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit
