On May 6th 2010, a dozen business men and women from the Québec City region attended the 11th edition of Portage’s Table du Chef event. Organised in partnership with the Fairmont Château Frontenac, the event raised $8,000 for Portage’s drug addiction rehabilitation centre for adolescents in Saint-Malachie.
The guests each paid $650 to put together a delicious gourmet supper in the Château Frontenac kitchens, with the guidance of Executive Chef Jean Soulard. The apprentice chefs then got to evaluate their culinary talents, sitting down to enjoy the meal that they had created.
A big thank you to the Fairmont Château Frontenac, to the event participants, and to all those who support Portage’s work to help people achieve Freedom from Addiction.
