Culinary Caravan with Phil Nicholson

Saturday   Apr 6        3:15 – 9:00 pm    $165+HST


The Glebe’s own award-winning Sommelier Phil Nicholson is up to his old tricks with the return of his enormously popular Culinary Caravan tasting events at some of the most creative and delightful restaurants in the region. (Past events included gezellig in the west end, Les Fougères in Chelsea, and The Village House in Wakefield.)

How it works:

• Phil arranges a special fixed-price tasting menu created just for us, showcasing each restaurant’s finest fare, including vegetarian options.

• The restaurant also offers an optional wine pairing designed to perfectly complement the fare, or guests may order beverages a la carte—to be decided on site.

• We arrange affordable school-bus transportation between the Glebe Community Centre (GCC) and the restaurant for a safe, convenient and worry-free evening.

• Throughout the evening the Chef meets with us to share enthusiasm and culinary secrets.
