ELLEvate TogetHER - Fairmont's Collaborative Fundraiser Dinner

Join Fairmont Chateau Whistler for a collaborative culinary dinner on Sunday, November 12 with three of Canada’s top powerhouse female chefs lending their time and talent for a cause.  

An exclusive Cornucopia Food and Drink event at Fairmont Chateau Whistler 

The purpose of this event is two-fold; first and foremost, to raise money for cancer research, a cause that is deeply personal to all three chefs.  And while doing so, highlight other women in the industry.

These chefs include Nicole Gomes, recent Top Chef Canada All-star winner; Melissa Craig, executive chef at Bearfoot Bistro; and Fairmont’s own executive chef, Isabel Chung. Each chef will oversee two mouth-watering courses, with a female apprentice chef sharing the spotlight on one of those. Guests will have an opportunity to meet Nikki Callaway, winemaker at Quails’ Gate, and enjoy her extraordinary wine as well as her insight into the industry. She will be joined by two of British Columbia’s best sommeliers, Maryke Vandermarel from Bearfoot Bistro and Jill Spoor from Fairmont Pacific Rim, who will collaborate with the chefs for the ultimate wine pairing. 

It’s an intimate dinner at Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s Grill Room restaurant with only 50 seats available. All proceeds go toward the Canadian Cancer Society.
