JLT Chef’s Showcase

Thu, 6:00 PM TO 9:00 PM



The event, that took it’s first steps in 2018 is planned again for May 2nd, 2019, 6 pm to 9 pm.   It features the opportunity to eat, drink, mingle and support the work of the Junior League of Toronto and the creation of the Junior League of Toronto Culinary Scholarship*, in cooperation with the George Brown Foundation! The event is being held at The George Brown College Centre for Hospitality & Culinary Arts, 300 Adelaide Street East, Toronto. 

In our inaugural year the event celebrated alumni of George Brown and it was charmingly hosted by celebrity chef, TV personality and George Brown alumni; Chef Christine Cushing.   

This year our focus is on “women in food and wine”, and we are lucky to have Christine Cushing back and she will be co-hosting with Michael Fagan, a renowned wine expert.

We are looking for corporate sponsors to support the event and chefs to participate.
