Canada’s Great Kitchen Party is a national culinary competition with over 100 Chefs and 5,000 guests gathering annually across twelve cities in Canada. With a 13 year successful history, this evening of celebration and elevation of Canadian culture in food, sport, and music has raised $15 million for Canadian athletes and as of 2018, the impact has expanded to include music and food programs for youth.
Reigning silver medalist of Canada’s Culinary Championship 2018 for Nova Scotia, Chef Dolente, and his culinary team will once again compete in Canada’s Great Kitchen Party, an evening of celebration and elevation of Canadian culture in food, sport and music, set for Friday, October 18 at the Cunard Centre in Halifax. Tickets available HERE.
Behind every great Chef, is a great culinary team and Chef Dolente’s will be supporting him in full during the competition. With the absence of skilled hands in our kitchen at The Carleton this Friday, October 18, Chef Dolente has graciously created a Snack-able Menu for guests to enjoy.
On August 21, our Carleton was proudly involved in hosting The “No Time for That” Anti-Bullying and Mental Health Benefit Concert alongside its founder, singer-songwriter, Elsie Morden.
100% of proceeds from the benefit concert went towards ensuring that the Anti-Bullying Society’s “No Time for That” Tour can continue to deliver powerful presentations about bullying prevention, mental health awareness and youth empowerment to schools free of charge. So far they have been to 600 schools across Canada including 71 schools in Nova Scotia.
We, at The Carleton, have no time for bullying and are cheering on Elsie for her efforts in continuing to create awareness and change with this important anti-bullying movement. You rock Elsie!
Come and celebrate moms with a special Brunch, featuring live music from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 12.
We will be featuring a brunch menu with some of your favourites from last year and will also have a few options for children . As a special surprise , we are happy to offer complimentary MOMosas for all Moms!
