A New Westminster culinary institution helping some young chefs compete on the world stage.
Starting Nov. 6, Old Spaghetti Factory launches a dish specifically designed for them by Junior Culinary Team Canada.
The Junior Culinary Team Canada, Penne with Italian Sausage Ragu and Whipped Ricotta dish will be featured at all Old Spaghetti Factory (OSF) locations across Western Canada for the Fall/Winter Menu. Every time the custom pasta dish is ordered, OSF will donate $1 to support Junior Culinary Team Canada in their quest for gold in Luxembourg in 2022, and ultimately at the 2024 World Culinary Olympics in Stuttgart, Germany.
Junior Culinary Team Canada is comprised of six members and three support members who are from across Canada along with coaches. This team wants to match the two gold medals won at the Olympics in 2020 and continue the great tradition of being one of the top five overall countries in the culinary world.
Funds raised will support the team as they practice and train together for the next twelve months along with going towards their expenses for travel and competing in the competition in Luxembourg. The team of young chefs have been practicing remotely during the pandemic and now have officially started practicing together and hosting fundraising events.
The practicing, training and fundraising is to prepare for the competition in Luxembourg that is a 2-day event where the team is tasked to cook a three-course meal from scratch for 80 guests one day, and an edible buffet for twelve guests the second day. Meals must include terrines, canapes, salads and desserts.
