The first-ever guest chef that Slow Food Carleton Convivium held was a very successful! We enjoyed the food and the company while coming up with a beautiful love poem. Thank you for the chefs (Khanh and Xiaozhou) who prepared the delicious dishes and the guests who made the event enjoyable and fun. There will be many more chances in the future since we want to make Guest Chef as one of our regular events. 🙂
