L'Abattoir, 217 Carrall St
We are going global again! We've reached out to our friends in the culinary community and have invited them to Vancouver. Five of the world's culinary best will be in our city for a series of delicious collaborations with some of our own city's top talent.
Two acclaimed chefs join forces for a one-night-only dining experience as beloved L'Abattoir Chef/Owner Lee Cooper welcomes James Beard award-winning Chef/Owner Jamie Bissonette of Coppa, Toro and Little Donkey.
Held in L'Abattoir's stunning private dining room and limited to just 50 guests, chefs Cooper and Bissonnette - who previously collaborated at the 2014 Northern Chefs Alliance & FarmOn! Foundation Dinner in Hudson, NY - will be united once again for a collaborative, multi-course dinner that celebrates the unpretentious-yet-refined cuisines of both chefs.
The Vancouver World Chef Exchange, presented by Aeroplan, is a project initiated and produced by Tourism Vancouver, and supported by Air Canada and the Westin Bayshore hotel. The exchange shares Vancouver's culinary story with the world, and brings the world's great restaurant cities closer together by sharing ideas, experiences and talents through collaborative dining experiences.
*All inclusive - includes welcome cocktail, beverage pairing, tax, gratuity and ticketing fees.
Executive Chef Lee Cooper brings more than two decades of industry experience to the helm of L'Abattoir - where his French-influenced West Coast fare has gained him a legion of loyal followers - having been at the helm of some of B.C.'s top kitchens as well as Michelin-starred restaurants in the U.S. and U.K.
