Calgary chefs to duke it out at AGCcooks

by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments


While our weather remains obstinately cool, it’s going to get sizzling hot at The Art Gallery of Calgary on Wednesday, May 8 as they host their eagerly anticipated annual fundraiser, AGCcooks. Back for its eleventh year, the event features six of Calgary’s hottest chefs competing in an epic culinary battle to win over the tastebuds of judges and guests alike. 


Diners will enjoy an exceptional four-course meal created by either Catch, Home, Charcut, Raw Bar, Teatro, or Market, paired with wines masterfully chosen by each restaurant’s sommelier. Throwing a curveball to creativity is local food writer John Gilchrist who, just days prior to the competition, will announce a surprise ingredient that each chef must feature in their meals. Guests, along with a panel of celebrity judges, will cast their votes based on taste, creativity, and presentation to award the coveted title to the top chef.



All proceeds from AGCcooks support the gallery’s K–12 educational programs. Tickets are $300 ($150 of which is tax receiptable) and are available by calling 403.770.1350. A handful of tickets remain but don’t wait to purchase as the event always sells out.
