On Tuesday September the 11th 2012, Toronto’s infamous Group Of Seven Chefs had the honour of cooking dinner at the historied James Beard House in New York City.
Chefs Marc Dufour, Bertrand Alépée (The Tempered Chef), Kevin McKenna (Taboo Resort), Chris Brown (The Stop), Nick Liu (GwaiLo Asian Brasserie), Scott Vivian (Beast), Mark Cutrara (Cowbell), and Matty Matheson (Parts & Labour) travelled to Manhattan with wines from Somewhereness at the invitation of The James Beard Foundation.
And they certainly did Toronto proud.
Below is a video documentation of that night (and the preparation the day before)
