Toronto's The Chefs' House to Host Ruth Reichl Book Signing
The Chefs' House will host a brunch-and-book-signing for Ruth Reichl’s latest book Delicious! on Sunday, May 25 at their King Street East restaurant.
The author, a former Editor-in-Chief of the much-missed Gourmet magazine and author of several cookbooks (Tender at the Bone, Comfort Me with Apples) will attend the special luncheon and be available for discussions on all-things culinary.
The 11:30 am event will cost $65 per person and include brunch as well as a signed copy of Delicious!
Reservations are a must. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The student-run venture, led by chef Oliver Li, is a project of the George Brown College Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts. The restaurant is open Monday to Friday; lunch runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and dinner between 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Students of the culinary program get practical experience by working either a seven or 14 week program in both front and back of house.
“We set high expectations for each of our students as we nurture their growth to the highest professional standards,” said Chef Li.
A typical dinner will include such courses as a starter aperitif, an appetizer of Citrus cured Trout, a main of braised beef Rouladen (with mustard Spaetzle and braised Red Cabbage) and a dessert of Poached Pears with blue cheese ice cream.
On a recent visit, Celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsey (not known for his positive comments) praised The Chef’s House by stating that he was “…blown away with the standards that are produced here.”
Local foodies should also note that the restaurant has just announced they will be presenting a one-year Professional Fromager Certificate program to be held every weekend. The course is advertised for Industry professionals as well as “advanced enthusiast learners.”
