Quick. It’s summer. Get out and about while the going is good. Chartier, in Beaumont, is hosting a number of delicious food and beverage events in and outside of their restaurant that should inspire your participation in the next month or so.
On Monday, July 30, Chartier owners Sylvia Cheverie and Darren Cheverie will partner with Beaumont’s first naturopathic doctor, Dr. Sheldon Jordan, and certified herbalist, Lauren Mary, to do an “au naturel” tasting menu at the Old Red Barn (located just outside of Leduc).
The focus is on aligning the mind, body, and soul through a three-course, gluten-free pescatarian meal with non-alcoholic pairings, including digestive cocktails. It’s a gentle introduction to mindful eating. Details and tickets are available on Facebook.
On Aug. 13, Chartier hosts the second annual Thaddeus Lake Sips and Savouries event at the restaurant, located at 5012 50 St #102. This is a charitable effort initiated by the family of Thaddeus Lake (a young local resident) who was tragically killed by a drunk driver in 2011.
The Thaddeus Lake Foundation started with donations at his memorial to honour the local music legacy that Thaddeus had started. The goal of the fund is to remove economic barriers to music education for kids in the Leduc area.
The night will be filled with live music, great wine and food, and silent auction items. Details are on an event page set up by the foundation on Facebook.
On Aug. 19, the restaurant once again partners with the folks at the Old Red Barn to celebrate Alberta Open Farm Days. Executive chef Steve Brochu will design a five-course menu based on dairy and cheese products from local producers. Tickets are currently sold out, but a wait list is available. Details are on Facebook.
