Two Community Partners Recognized at Boréal’s Latest Gastronomical Event!
Friday, March 31, 2017 – Timmins – Collège Boréal
Bistro Boréal, held at the Timmins campus has celebrated an important partnership between Collège Boréal and two local businesses, the Fromagerie Kapuskoise and Mattagami Heights Farm.
Under the supervision of Chef Justin Bonney, students enrolled in Boréal’s Culinary Arts program in Timmins regularly organize gourmet events known as “Bistro Boréal”.
Open to the public, the bistros allow students to put into practice classroom training and manage a culinary event from start to finish. In addition, two educational trips were funded with part of the proceeds.
Canadian cuisine was highlighted at the event. Guests were served poutine with shredded duck confit and cheese curds from Fromagerie Kapuskoise, maple glazed braised beef short ribs from Mattagami Heights Farms, and other Canadian delights!
The agricultural opportunities in northeastern Ontario are limitless. Collège Boréal is committed to working closely with local businesses and showcasing quality products from the region, says Daniel Giroux, President, Collège Boréal.
