Two pedigreed culinary talents will share the stage when Au Comptoir Executive Chef Daniel McGee and La Quercia Chef/Owner Adam Pegg come together to co-host a collaborative dinner in celebration of the acclaimed Kitsilano brasserie’s.

The seven-course event will showcase the very best of both classic French and Italian cuisine courtesy of McGee, who opened Au Comptoir with Maxime Bettili and Julien Aubin in 2014, and Pegg, one of only a few Canadians to earn a coveted diploma from the ItalCook Slow Food Master Italian Cooking program and the chef and owner of La Quercia and its sister enoteca, L’ufficio. During the event, McGee and Pegg will share the line and prepare such courses as the Venetian-inspired Pesce ‘In Saor’ (preserved fish marinated and cooked in white wine and vinegar); the quintessentially French staple Daube De Cerf(red wine braised venison, carrot gnocchi, quince, chestnut); Sunchoke and Ricotta Stuffed Rotolo (almond and brown butter); and Tarte Tatin (yogurt ice cream, mille-feuille ‘tiramisu’).
