SAISONS – A series of curated gatherings in Montreal / How it works

The SAISONS dinners are intimate seasonal events staged in unique locations. Each season, a chef is invited to explore his favourite ingredients through his cooking. Each event’s multi-course menu will highlight what’s in season in and around Québec at that time of year and feature foraged ingredients, along with unique products from local producers and growers.

You bring the wine, and we’ll take care of the rest!

The concept is simple. You purchase your ticket in advance, which reserves your seat(s) at the SAISONS dinner table. A couple of weeks before the event, we will email you a flavour profile for one of the dishes on the menu so that you can shop for a fabulous wine to pair with that dish. The day of the dinner, bring your bottle of wine to share with the other guests, and when your dish is being served, you will be asked to describe and present your wine to the other guests attending so that they can understand the pairing.
Fun? Oh yes! Our aim is to surprise, teach and inspire our guests with great food and a few surprises.

Seating is always very limited (20 guests per dinner) and the location will be revealed a few days before the event.
