Great Canadian Kitchen Party at Inniskillin Winery

Looking for a great way to kick off CAUCE 2019? Join colleagues from across Canada for a unique networking opportunity!

You'll chop, slice, stir, and sip as our chefs take you on a culinary journey influenced by cuisine from across Canada. Begin the experience in founder’s hall, sipping Sparkling Icewine and enjoying cheese and charcuterie as the chefs set the scene for your epicurean adventure. Divide & conquer as each designated team takes on a course (guidance provided, naturally!). Don your chef's hats and aprons, and interact with our chefs as they assist you to create dishes that you'll enjoy family style. Friendly competition heats up as your team endeavours to prepare the best dish!
