In Conversation With: Jeremy Charles

  • Wednesday, May 22
  • 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
  • The CHCA (300 Adelaide St E)

The George Brown College Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts is delighted to welcome Chef Jeremy Charles for the next instalment of our In Conversation With: panel discussion series.

The New York Times describes Charles as a chef who exudes the quiet confidence of someone who knows he has the touch, the taste and the eye to turn parochial products into plates of world-class food.” The book offers a rare opportunity to discover the inspiration of Charles’s creative process, and to follow his journey from St. John’s to Montreal, then Chicago, and then back home again. Newfoundland is the only place in North America that allows restaurants to serve wild game meats, and, as Chef Charles highlights in his book, it provides “the purest seafood and wild meats on earth.” The book features 160 recipes that emphasise Newfoundland’s unique ingredients.

Tickets are $75 plus HST and ticket processing fees and include a copy of Wildness: An Ode to Newfoundland and Labrador. Doors open at 6:00 pm and In Conversation With: Jeremy Charles begins promptly at 6:30 pm. A reception with refreshments and the opportunity to meet with Chef Jeremy will follow the discussion.
