In a sign of the arrival of Winnipeg summer, local chefs — Mandel Hitzer, of Deer + Almond, and Ben Kramer, of custom catering chefbenkramer.com — led the way in serving dinner for 1,200 outdoors, this year at 150 tables that ran in a line from the east Exchange District at Market Avenue along Rorie Street and through the Richardson Building plaza ending at Portage and Main.
As is the case every year, the location of the dinner was kept secret until Saturday afternoon, as the was the menu.
Guests at the 365-metre long table enjoyed seven courses, served family-style on platters, including quinoa and marinated mushroom salad, Manitoba beef meatballs and Greek style baby potatoes.
Table For 1,200 More is produced by Storefront Manitoba, an organization that works to advance the awareness and appreciation of architecture, design and the built environment
