The culinary initiatives in Quebec are not lacking in these times of pandemic. It owes a large part of this success to The Tablée des Chefs, which encourages cooks experienced, but also mr. and mrs. all-the-world, to install the countertops and in the kitchen to talk about food.
At the helm of La Tablée des Chefs, Jean-François Archambault has created Kitchens in Solidarity, a project that has generated a mobilization monster since the beginning of the confinement. Fixed at 800 000 meals to food banks, the goal has doubled, now reaching 1.6 million of dishes, including shepherd’s pie and vegetarian chili.
Already, more than 700,000 of them have been prepared and shipped, according to figures available on the project web site.
Arrested, many restaurateurs are well known and their brigade have decided to put hand to the dough. The most recent list? Hugo Saint-James, who turned on the lights of the Dock619 in Longueuil, quebec, with his team on Monday to help reach this impressive total.
Other places gourmet very popular and also have delivered on their various devices since the early Kitchens of Solidarity, a movement started shortly after the beginning of the confinement. This was the case with Queen Elizabeth at the Château Frontenac, the Bell Centre and the Tavern, 1909, among others.
In addition to filling stomachs, The Tablée des Chefs has found a way to financially support the conservators here, and their employees, by paying 1 $ per serving, made in full-COVID-19.
In addition to the long skewer of the chefs who joined in the adventure, multiple food producers local have provided the protein and vegetables needed for this huge undertaking of cooking. Of the major financial partners – such as Quebecor, the Foundation Chopin-Péladeau, IGA and the SAQ – have also rapidly been waiting for you. The company Énergir has made a donation of 144 000 $ earlier this week.
In addition to its sincere efforts for food banks, La Tablée des Chefs were also given to encourage people to cook dishes at home, for them. It is, therefore, associated with the Foundation of literacy in order to share various recipes with Ricardo, and help the children to practice their reading.
Capsules food have been recorded, a booklet was laid out and the contest #OnCuisineEnFamille has been created in the hope of finding the best recipe of Quebec.
