The Charitable Chef

We are pleased to introduce a new fundraiser, The Charitable Chef! The next Charitable Chef experience is November 19, 2020

This is a great way to explore a delicious three-course meal curated by a local culinary talent while also supporting York Region Food Network’s community food programs. 

Here’s how it works…

On November 19 from 6:00-8:00pm we are thrilled to have Chef Maxine Knight lead a 2 hour virtual cook-along experience. In this virtual cook-along, the menu is planned for you and we will give you all the ingredients you need for two servings of the menu. 

A few days before the event, you will receive an email with details about what basic cooking equipment you’ll need and the ZOOM link. 

On the day of the cook-along, pop by York Region Food Network between 10:00am and 5:00pm to pick up your ingredient kit. From there, login to ZOOM at 5:50pm and prepare for a fun and memorable night of food.
