Students from Red River College’s Culinary Arts program are helping to raise money for disaster relief efforts in Japan.
Natasha Dyck and Jesse Friesen — recent Culinary Arts grads working at Tre Visi and Lobby On York, respectively — are both featured in the inaugural edition of the Canadian Culinary Federation’s Made in Canada: A Collection of Recipes from Canada’s Junior Chefs, an 18-month calendar highlighting the accomplishments of junior chefs from coast to coast.
Proceeds from the sale of the calendar were originally to go towards the 2011 Bidvest World Cooks Tour Against Hunger in South Africa, as well as the Junior Chefs Initiative in Canada. But Culinary Arts instructor Tim Appleton says his students have decided to instead donate $10 from every $20 calendar sold to World Chefs Without Borders, a humanitarian aid initiative by the World Association of Chefs Societies.
