Dinner For Levi.

On September 22, My chef rallied the BluntRoll Syndicate for a charity dinner at the restaurant for his charity the Janeway Hospital. It was an 8 course dinner, with each course prepared by each chef using local Newfoundland ingredients. It was my absolute pleasure to have been able to join the team of Raymond’s in general, I have been waiting to be part of this talented group for years. Can you imagine my delight when I learned that we will be working with 8 of Canada’s best chefs?!
