Epic Chowder Feast Planned for Calgary this November

by Shannon Calhoun · 0 comments

November marks national Ocean Wise Month, and in honour of this important cause, the Vancouver Aquarium is hosting a special charitable event on Monday, November 18 called the Chowder Chowdown at the Hyatt Regency Calgary.  Events will also be hosted in other locations across Canada, including Vancouver and Toronto.

The aim is to raise awareness for sustainable seafood, and overfishing, which is the single biggest threat that our oceans face today. Ocean Wise is a Vancouver Aquarium conservation program created to educate and empower consumers about the issues surrounding sustainable seafood. They work directly with restaurants, markets, food services and suppliers ensuring that they have the most current scientific information regarding seafood and helping them make ocean-friendly buying decisions.

An amazing lineup of incredibly talented local chefs has been assembled to compete in the soon to be infamous Chowder Chowdown! Here’s the roster:

Calgary Ocean Wise Chef Finalists

• Chef Ron Jacobson | Bistro Rouge

• Executive Chef Chris Dewling | Blink Restaurant

• Chef Kyle Groves | Catch Restaurant & Oyster Bar at the Hyatt Regency

• Chef Paul McGreevy | CRAFT Beer Market

• Chef Darren MacLean | Downtownfood

• Chef Andrew Keen | Redwater Rustic Grille

• Chef Andrew Winfield | River Café

• Chef Dustin Schafer | Sky 360

• Executive Chef Paul Peddle | The Rimrock at the Fairmont Palliser

• Chef Rebecca House | Thomsons Restaurant at the Hyatt Regency

Guests will be able to sample all of the chef’s tasty creations paired with craft beer, and cast their vote for a People’s Choice Award.  A panel of judges will also be on-hand to determine the evening’s champion.

At only $52.50 each, tickets for this event are sure to move fast, so get yours soon to avoid disappointment. Tickets are available here.
