This is the second edition of the Omnivore Festival in Montreal. It is a culinary festival from August 14th to 19th with two entire days of cooking demonstrations, six “maudits soupers” and an omnivorious night.
The invited chefs for the demonstrations are from Montreal, France, Belgium and the United States. According to La Presse’s article, Jeremiah Langhorne and Pierre Sang Boyer are some of the chefs to follow. Langhorne because he mixes traditional food with new culinary technologies in his restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina. He will be at the SAT on August 18th at 3:40 p.m. Sang Boyer because he mixes craziness, freshness and a mix of French and Asian cuisine in his restaurant in Paris. He was also a finalist in Top Chef 2011 in France. He will be at the SAT on August 17th at 3:00 p.m.
The “maudits soupers” are dinners prepared through the collarobation of two chefs or more. There is one every night starting on the 14th until the 19th, except the 18th that will have two dinners. You have to reserve with the restaurant hosting, more information on their website.
The omnivorious night will allow you to taste bites of food from all the chefs. It sounds like the event not to be missed, on August 17th at 7:00 p.m. at the SAT. You can register for a pass for the cost of 40 dollars.
Last year, I found out about the festival towards the end and wasn’t able to attend. This year, I might not be able to attend it either due to my tight budget. I wish I could attend all of the events, maybe next year!!!
