The evening is also a celebration of local Latin American cookery, with the participating chefs hailing from Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela. Each chef has taken on a course in this 7-course meal but everyone is pitching in to help each other in the spirit of co-operation. During the media preview, at one point we all stopped mid-bite as the chefs started singing together in Caju’s kitchen. And if that’s what happens at the preview luncheon, just imagine how much fun the dinner itself is sure to be!

Say Ola and celebrated Latino American food and culture in Toronto.
“In recent years, Latin American food has evolved in Canada, and OLA: Of Latin America- 7 Chefs, 1 Kitchen, 1 Hot Night is a dining experience that seeks to celebrate that by putting the culinary spotlight squarely on Latin chefs living and working in Toronto. This seven course epicurean discovery featuring local, sustainable fare will banish stereotypes and push the culinary boundaries of the Latin American table to delicioso heights. Proceeds from this first-of-a-kind event in Toronto will be donated to Youth Link in support of vulnerable youth and their parents or caregivers living in the GTA”

FOR THE LAURENTIAN ROOM
Fuenmayor’s Latino background comes through loud, clear and delicious in a snowy piece of perfectly roasted halibut atop jazzy Creole stew that is rich with tomato, garlic and peppers. His deft touch also graces sea bream that is roasted until crispy, buttered tapenade and served with a New Age salad made from thinly sliced fennel and onions lightly marinated in red wine vinegar, jazzed with lemon zest.

“This Latin lovely has stopped clearing away the tables for its Friday and Saturday night “Mambo Lounge,” staking its fortune on the winningly eclectic output of Chef Carlos Fuenmayor’s Kitchen. He gives you a tour d’horizon de l’amerique latine.”
Best Latin American restaurant of 2000.

This Nuevo Latino cuisine is not afraid of flavour. Flavour embraces us and kisses us on both cheeks. It excites and stimulates our senses, but it does not stomp on us.
