A few days of festivities took place in Calgary to celebrate the growth of their Ocean Wise partners in Alberta.  Flying fish, culinary chef demonstrations and, a secret dinner took place in our city. 

CSL was invited to this dine around, featuring local chefs creations and their commitment to sustainability of fish stocks.

First, guests dined at The Fairmont Palliser, for a classic Ocean Wise salmon tartare, from Executive Chef Paul Peddle

 A short distance away at Redwater Rustic Grill, corporate chef at Vintage Group Andrew Stevens  treated guests to a salt crusted Ocean Wise Arctic char

 The beautiful dish, created by Executive Chef Dustin Schafer of Sky 360Restaurant and Lounge featured seared Ocean Wise striped bass, pickled vegetables and a risotto cake.

The final stop was at Catch, where Executive Chef Kyle Groves created a dish of Ocean Wise B.C halibut and spot prawn with morel, English peas and chorizo ragout

Finally for dessert, a trio of Valrhona chocolate
