Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar To Host Food Day Canada Oyster Dinner on August 5
The team at Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar will raise a glass to this countryâ€™s rich culinary heritage and mark the annual celebration known as Food Day Canada â€” as well as World Oyster Day â€” by hosting an elegant four-course communal dinner at the downtown restaurant on Saturday, August 5.
The evening opens with a reception and champagne sabering sponsored by Taittinger and continues as Executive Chef Alex Chen and Chef de Cuisine Roger Ma serve up a bevy of bivalve-inspired dishes that includes Chilled Cucumber Gazpacho with Crispy Oyster, Oyster Chowder, and Salmon Wellington with Oyster Hollandaise. Tickets are available for $70 per person, plus taxes and gratuity.
What was initially launched in 2003 as the Worldâ€™s Longest Barbecue in response to sanctions imposed on Canadian beef exports has since evolved into Food Day Canada â€” an annual midsummer culinary celebration of the countryâ€™s regional diversity, abundance of fresh products available from farms, fisheries and ranches and the homegrown talents who prepare and plate them.
â€œFood Day Canada falling on the shoulders of World Oyster Day presents us with the perfect opportunity to not only pay homage to this countryâ€™s rich culinary history but also celebrate the people who provide us with a bounty of fresh, local ingredients each and every day,â€ says Chen.
