As a subscriber to the Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa newsletter, you’re getting the first opportunity to reserve your tickets for this event that we expect to sell out quickly.

Wine: Enjoy 4 wines personally selected by Natalie, an accredited sommelier, from the prestigious cellar at Signatures Restaurant to complement the mouth-watering food pairings.

Food: Under the keen eye of Executive Chef/Instructor Yannick Anton, treat your taste buds to an assortment of delicious canapés prepared by Le Cordon Bleu Superior Level and graduating students.

Book: You’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look into the glamourous, but surprising world of wine and those who write about it. In her newest book, Natalie shares the career and life challenges that forced her to dig deeper and reconnect with her belief in second chances. Indigo/Chapters just selected it as one of the “Most Anticipated Books of the Season.”
