Gladstone Grow Op / Chef Miriam Strieman + Chef Jamie Kennedy + Chef Mario Paz / EQUINOSH – A Tale of Two Counties
Inspired by Jane Jacobs’ assertion that ‘New ideas require old buildings’ the Gladstone Hotel and its dynamic events team are constantly pushing social ideas forward and asking questions about the way that we live in our cities more sustainably. The Hotel draws inspiration from its past, its peers and its surroundings to create a welcoming space for conversations that matter.
This year, as part of the Grow Op exhibition Chef Jamie Kennedy, Chef Miriam Streiman and The Gladstone’s Chef Mario Paz present an ambulatory ‘feast for the senses’ that celebrates the diversity of two local agricultural landscapes – Prince Edward County, 200k east of Toronto and Simcoe and Grey-Bruce County, 200k north-west of Toronto and present them in the diverse urban context of the Gladstone’s ballroom.
Through their own enterprises, Kennedy and Streiman have been inspirational leaders in supporting the renaissance of the new rural economy – one driven by quality, small scale production, resource conservation and sustainability.
Equinosh will feed your mind with a new understanding of what the Ontario landscape can offer in the days before the summer bounty. The producers will stand shoulder to shoulder with the cooks to animate the selection of democratically priced offerings. Enjoy the feast!
