If you happen to love a foodie, the way to their heart this Valentine’s is RIGHT HERE. A precious opportunity awaits in this perfectly paired, locally-procured meal served up by a Michelin-Starred, notable Canadian culinary talent. Chef Daniel Burns joins us from New York to host this momentous evening — accompanied by his own valentine Aya Ikeda — presenting a terroir-inspired 6-course dinner.
Burns’ brilliance is distinctly recognizable in his ability to shine in both savoury and sweet. Standing among culinary giants the world over, to be so adept in both arenas is a rare feat. Yet it comes as little surprise with his resume mirroring a culinary tour of the world’s finest restaurants; having worked at The Fat Duck (Bray, UK) when it received the World's 50 Best #1 rating, Noma of Copenhagen amid it’s rise to legendary status, and the critically-acclaimed Momofuku of New York, NY. Most recently in his hub of NYC, Daniel accomplished yet another one-of-a-kind deed, with his first restaurant, Luksus in Brooklyn, whose tasting menu was the first ever to receive a Michelin star pairing solely with beer (& cider). His first book was published by Phaidon in 2016 called FOOD & BEER that explores his philosophy behind pairing beer with food.
