Cook-off supports hospital
Celebrity chef and Streetsville resident Massimo Capra is throwing his support behind a fundraiser for the Hospital for Sick Children.
Not only will Capra be a judge at the NorCliff Farm Inc.'s fifth annual culinary challenge on May 2, but he and his partner Paolo Paolini will also host the event at their restaurant Sopra in Toronto.
The night begins at 7 p.m.
The public is invited to see three executive chefs, who have yet to be revealed, face off at the event to create tasty dishes — one that stimulates both the eye and mouth — using fiddleheads.
Tickets cost $100.
Fiddleheads are tiny ferns that "unfurl" their leaves during early spring and are considered a seasonal delicacy.
The chefs submitted a recipe that uses them as the main ingredient.
Fiddleheads can be cut up, hashed up or made into a puree to be used in dishes such as quiche, pâté, soufflé, soup and hor d'oeuvres.
NorCliff Farm, located in Port Colborne, Ont., is the largest producer and packer of fiddlehead greens in North America.
While the competition has been running for the last five years, NorCliff marketing director Nina DiLorenzo Secord says it's the first year all of the proceeds will help support a cause.
"We decided it was time to give back," she said, adding that they couldn't think of a better way than to support a cause that they truly believe in.
The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto will use the money to support advances in child health research and buy new life-saving medical equipment for its clinics and operating rooms.
The event will feature live entertainment, a silent auction, wine, appetizers, salads, deserts and of course main meals concocted by the trio of gourmet chefs. Seven judges, including Capra and NorCliff president Nick Secord, will sample the meals and compare the taste, appearance and creativity in each chef's use of fiddleheads.
