Dale MacKay Brings Taste of Saskatchewan to Edible Canada

Top Chef Canada winner to cook up three-course feast celebrating the best of his home province.

Think “Canadian cuisine” and images of poutine and chocolate-topped Beavertails may be more common than we’d like to admit. Luckily, Edible Canada is cultivating a more inspired taste of our Great White North with its 2015 Coast to Coast Market Dinner Series which will see the restaurant hosting the country’s top chefs in a year-long celebration of eight provinces and one territory.

This March, Saskatchewan is the muse and Saskatoon-born Top Chef Canada winner and 2014 Foodie of the Year, Dale MacKay, along with his team from the award-winning Ayden Kitchen & Bar will be cooking up a three-course meal (plus canapés) that highlights food indigenous to the Prairies and pays homage to the province’s history and heritage.

Each course of the 75 person sit-down dinner on March 2 will be paired with unique hand-crafted cocktails created by Ayden’s General Manager and celebrated Mixologist, Christopher Cho.
