RAW! The Great Toronto Tartare-Off

Note: This is a news release from Grapes for Humanity and an exciting event coming up later in March.

Grapes for Humanity Canada invites you to attend an exciting fund-raising event:

What: RAW! The Great Toronto Tartare-Off.

When/Where: Thursday March 29th, 2012 at Toronto’s Premier Hotel, The Fairmont Royal York from 6 p.m. – 8.30 p.m.

Cost: $125 per person.

Proceeds: The proceeds will go to help build a school for underprivileged children in Guatemala.

Watch 10 of Toronto’s leading chefs and four Ontario winemakers go head-to-head competing for the title of King/Queen of Tartare whether their major ingredient is meat, fish, seafood or vegetable.

Sample a dozen different tartares and the wines to match. Vote on your favourites and see if they are in line with our panel of culinary experts and celebrity judges.

See if your palate is in sync with our team of sommeliers who will determine the best wine matches.

We can’t live on tartare alone so there will be other food to enjoy – French fries (Frites), Chinese (Asian) hors d’oeuvres and Sweets.

Book early to avoid disappointment. To reserve your tickets call Annette at 416-445-9920 and help a great cause.

If you can’t attend please consider making a donation to Grapes for Humanity.
