Montreal Takeaway Initiative brings prime Canadian cooks along with native eating places
A dynamic new initiative from Sysco Grand Montreal kicked off this week in Montreal, bringing a collection of renowned Canadian chefs together with 10 of the city’s most popular restaurants for 10 weeks of creative takeaway and delivery collaborations.
Working with Sysco’s Keep Kitchens Open initiative, # ChefsÀEmporter aims to unite local chefs and create solidarity while promoting local restaurants to give a much-needed boost to Montreal’s food scene.
It will also mean tons of delicious and unique take-away options for Montreal residents to discover from an eclectic array of culinary influences.
“I love this initiative because it underscores the importance of working together to help our local food scene survive these unprecedented times,” said Thomas Delannoy, CEO of Chefs Canada. “We have award-winning chefs rubbing shoulders with family restaurants, private chefs and independent restaurants working towards the common goal of saving the local food scene for the good of all.”
Each participating chef creates a take-away or delivery offer, which is then displayed for seven days on the menu of the restaurant they are working with. The first collaboration is currently underway at Café Milano with a unique sandwich creation by the renowned chef Antonio Park.
Other notable upcoming collaborations include Nicolas Dutertre and Gentile Pizza Parlor from Chocolate Academy, Marcus Sahou and Spice Bros from Foiegwa and Fugazzi, Frédéric Dufort from Chez Lionel and Yo Mamas Burger and more.
