Our November 2020 Charitable Chef event features a 3 course Caribbean inspired menu developed by York Region Food Network’s Chef Maxine Knight with an exclusive sorbet flavour provided by Square Spoon.  

To get the evening started a prepared Curry Squash and Apple soup needs a quick heating.  Break out some bread and get ready for the cooking lesson.

For the main course, follow Chef Maxine’s instructions through the preparation and cooking of Stewed Chicken with Coconut Rice and Mango Coleslaw side dishes.

Chef Maxine shares a Bajan Rum Cake with Butter Rum Sauce based on a family “All I Knead’ recipe to cap the meal off. This special treat is paired with a Caramelized Pineapple Sorbet specially developed by Square Spoon.


We are so thrilled to have Chef Maxine Knight lead this virtual cook-along. 

Thank you to Square Spoon for the sorbet.  They are based out of Newmarket Ontario, please visit and support their social media pages – @squarespoon
