This is What $700 Gets You for Gagnaire at ITHQ

Photo: ITHQ

The cuisine of star chef Pierre Gagnaire will be on stage at the place that produces more chefs in the province of Quebec than any other. The grand event at the Institut de tourisme et d'hôtellerie du Québec's restaurant will see Gagnaire and his Michelin three-star brigade serve up cocktails and a six-course meal with wine pairings (which have yet to be revealed). ITHQ chef Mathias Théau, students from the Professional Cuisine program and sommelier Eric Chevrier will be on hand to assit. Professor Thierry Pelven will supervise service with another student brigade.

Tickets for the soirée cost $700.
