Meet the Host of our first Junior League of Toronto Chef’s Showcase – Chef Christine Cushing!
Christine graduated with honours from George Brown College before going on to finish at the top of her class at the famed Paris École de Cuisine La Varenne. In Toronto Christine worked at renowned kitchens such as The Four Seasons Hotel and Scaramouche then went on to the ground-breaking Food Network flagship series, Christine Cushing Live. Christine has since continued to share her love and knowledge of food on TV with Fearless in the Kitchen, the Marilyn Denis Show, and her documentary series, Confucius was a Foodie now playing in over 90 countries! Christine has been teaching viewers how to cook for 20 years and was recently nominated for ‘Best Host in a Program of Series’ at the 2018 Canadian Screen Awards. The busy and accomplished George Brown alumni has also created her own artisan food line: Christine’s Cushing’s olive oil and sauces and her own youtube channel; ‘My Favourite Foods’ with over 10,000 subscribers!
Please join us for a fabulous evening of food created by George Brown Alumni Chefs, wine pairings by Noble Estates, a Silent Auction and opportunity to help the Toronto community. Tickets are $90 and available via the Junior League of Toronto.
