Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford plans to put a little oompah-pah on your plate at Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest's Stein & Dine Eve

 

Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, in partnership with Molson Coors Canada, is thrilled to welcome Food Network Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford to our incredibly popular Stein & Dine Culinary Experience. Stein & Dine will take place Thursday, September 10, 2015, at the Waterloo Inn.

"We couldn't be happier to welcome Chef Lynn Crawford to our Stein and Dine event this year. Over the last four years we have been very fortunate to have had both Chef Roger Mooking and Chef Corbin Tomaszeski as extraordinary guests - they were entertaining, interacted with the audience, and, of course, prepared fantastic meals. We are very proud to be able to maintain such a high standard for our Stein and Dine Event, with the addition of Chef Lynn Crawford to this list of distinguished Chef's," says Dave MacNeil, Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest Executive Director.

Chef Lynn Crawford will prepare a multi-course Bavarian-inspired meal, in front of a crowd of over 250 guests at this unique Oktoberfest culinary experience. Each course will highlight traditional Bavarian foods, and a specially selected Molson Coors Canada beer will be paired with each course, by Canadian Cicerone Justin Lamontagne.

Canada's homegrown Chef Lynn Crawford boasts a very impressive resume; which includes, regular television appearances on Chopped Canada, Top Chef Canada, Restaurant Makeover, and she was the first female Canadian Chef to participate in Iron Chef America. She also stars in her own show Pitchin' In, which is one of the highest rated cooking shows on TV and garnered her three Gemini Award nominations. She has also published two bestselling cookbooks, with a third on the way in 2015.

Chef Lynn Crawford is the Chef and Owner of Ruby Watchco, a market inspired comfort food restaurant in Toronto's East End. She also has recently opened a new restaurant at Pearson International Airport, called The Hearth.
