Today, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada announced an exciting new partnership with some of Canada’s top chefs and restaurateurs that will provide Canadians with a one-of-a-kind culinary experience and fundraising opportunity to support Canadians affected by multiple sclerosis.
Taking place from October 2 to 4, chefs, participating restaurants, and food-lovers from across the country are invited to come together to explore a variety of cuisines through Savour: A Culinary Festival.
“Savour provides Canadians with a fun and rare opportunity to connect through food while supporting the MS community. There’s a certain level of connectivity that we’re all missing right now,” says Pamela Valentine, president and CEO, MS Society of Canada. “This is a chance to come together at our respective dining room tables and share a meal, share an experience, support our local communities and at the same time raise funds for life-changing MS research, programs, and services for those living with MS across Canada.”
The first way Canadians can partake in Savour: A Culinary Festival is through the Chef at Home Experience. Renowned chefs such as Rob Gentile, Vikram Vij, and Elyse Chatterton will provide viewers with a curated ingredient list and virtual hands-on cooking demonstration, followed by an interactive Q&A segment.
“To have the opportunity to support a cause very close to my heart through the shared, joyful experience of cooking together with people in homes across the country is an honour. It’s going to be something special that I’m really looking forward to," says Gentile.
Canadians are also invited to partake in the festival by ordering delivery, takeout, or visiting one of more than 50 participating restaurant locations across the country, or by registering to host their own dinner party and asking guests to contribute a small donation to the MS Society of Canada.
