Outstanding blind tasting menu at George
" Everyone experienced the evening together, being surprised as each course and accompanying wine arrived "

Nineteen members, prospective members and guests were treated to a “Blind Tasting Menu”, accompanied by matching wines, created by renowned Canadian Executive Chef Lorenzo Loseto.

One of Canada’s premier chefs, Chef Loseto is renowned for his innovative approach to cooking. His emphasis is on bold flavours and textures by using seasonal, natural and sustainable food. As Executive Chef at George, ranked as one of the best restaurants in Canada, Chef Loseto oversees the culinary direction of the Verity Group Companies including George, Verity Club, The Ivy at Verity and Sweetgrass Spa.

Passionate to provide the best of Canadian cuisine combined with his classical training and international influences, Chef Loseto has earned both critical acclaim and many awards.

On arrival attendees were greeted with this printed message summing up the experience to come:

“Led by Executive Chef Lorenzo Loseto, George’s menus are devoted to creating seasonal, original dishes with the freshest local ingredients. Chef Loseto’s modern approach to cooking, combined with his classical training, allows him to create a multi-faceted and inspiring food experience that builds on Canadian ingredients and Toronto’s broad émigré traditions. We hope that you will enjoy your five-course blind Tasting Menu this evening with wine pairings which allows you to fully explore the bold flavours and textures of Chef’s cooking.”

Even the event’s organizers had no idea of the menu! Everyone experienced the evening together, being surprised as each course and accompanying wine arrived.

As a bonus, the restaurant made a reservation for us in their new Speakeasy facility after the dinner. We were delighted that Ada Lo, a Dame de la Chaîne member in Macau, was able to join the Toronto contingent for the event.
