Canada 150 brings east and west together – literally with delicious results

In honour of the country’s 150th birthday, Canada Beef and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts joined forces to celebrate how Canada’s cultural diversity has influenced the evolution of our cuisine.

The last week of August, Canada Beef and Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York highlighted the Asian influence in Canadian cuisine featuring the Royal York’s Executive Chef Robert Mill’s and Chef Clinton Zhu from Shanghai. And of course Canada’s grand dames of cuisine: Elizabeth Baird and Anita Stewart were among the media guests.

At the Fairmont Royal York, guests were treated to an East meets West themed dinner where the Chef duo presented different preparations of beef, reflecting unique cultural influences. Dishes like…

Yonge Street Sirloin with Gremolata and Mushroom,

Oven Roasted Orange Beef Tri-tip with Shanghainese Sauce 

and Charred Sirloin Roll with Pickled Asparagus

Both BTV Toronto and CTV Kitchener highlighted the event of our Canada 150 Chef Duo.

It was a great opportunity to consider how far we’ve come with Canada’s cuisine and to reflect on all the good foods that Canada has to offer – that we often take for granted. Chef Clinton had the best way to sum it all up with his comments:

“Once we take the time to get to know where our food comes from and how it is crafted, we can truly appreciate its beauty.”
