There is an optional Recipe Kit for sale, which will include all ingredients you will need to cook along ~ PLUS a bottle of Colaneri Riesling (a splash required for the recipe; the rest for you to drink)! All ingredients for these kits are lovingly sourced from LOCAL suppliers as we are always proud to support and feature our local farmers.

The funds raised by purchases of the recipe kit go to cover those costs only – additional donations are welcomed, and greatly appreciated.

Charitable Donations:

Funds raised during this virtual event will support Growing Chefs! Ontario’s continued educational shift into their new programming space: Growing Chefs! at The Grove
