Calgary lunchtime CORE Cook-Off puts 4 restaurants head-to-head for charity

Dec 19 2017, 3:13 am

There’s a lunchtime treat for all who are in downtown today. The CORE is hosting a lunchtime tasting event where you can sample dishes from Cactus Club, Double Zero, Hy’s Steakhouse, and The Metropolitan Grill.

After tasting each of the four dishes, attendees will vote for their favourite and then winning restaurant will get to donate $1,000 to a charity of their choice. Drop-in diners can also donate to local charity causes.

“March brings a real appreciation of Calgary’s vibrant food scene,” Allison Onyett said, on behalf of the CORE. “With events such as The Big Taste underway and the recent release of Avenue’s 2016 Best Restaurant Awards list, this is the month Calgary’s talented chefs and many fantastic eateries are in the spotlight.”

“The tasting event is very much open to all, everyone is welcome. They’ll be an open-style cook-off between our restaurant’s Chefs, lots of delicious food to try, and it’s all for a good cause. We’re hoping to see lots of tasters stop by and enjoy a little lunch on us!”
