Q Haute Cuisine was an outstanding venue for this interactive evening, as guests were treated to delicious Kelowna wines while learning various techniques to create memorable dishes. Once all the guests had a chance to prepare an appetizer with liquid nitrogen, make their own fresh ravioli, and whip up a tasty dessert, everyone was treated to scrumptious 3-course, wine-paired dinner featuring various components that had just been created.

During the evening our partners had an opportunity to chat with the clients about future business opportunities. The clients who attended have provided very positive feedback about the event and are excited to bring future groups to Kelowna.
