At The Cheese Wedge, there is nothing we enjoy more than making entertainment & hosting dreams come true. Although our retail store has so much to offer in that department, we have been missing the Chef Events that we used to be able to host in store. Thankfully, we will be (re)-starting these as early as this week. If you have been to one in the past, we are so excited to be re-introducing these! However, for some of you - this is probably brand new information. We wanted to give a detailed post on what to expect & how you can book these events.
During a Chef Event at The Cheese Wedge, you can enjoy an intimate & gourmet meal with a small group of people. The "theme" of the event varies greatly - some events may be a themed dinner (Indian cuisine, for example). Whereas others will be held as more of an interactive cooking class. Regardless of the "theme", you will be enjoying an intimate night out with one of our private chefs. The events tend to be 3 course (and up) meals, and all you have to do is show up, and be hungry. We take care of the rest!
Our resident in-house chef, Chef Doug Wong, along with Chef Andrew McNaughton and Chef Paresh Thakkar will all be taking part in The Cheese Wedge's Chef Events. Each chef currently has dates available for these one-of-a-kind events to be booked. Click the link(s) below to browse the dates they each have available. As time goes on, we plan to work with even more local chefs - so be sure to check back often!

It is important to us at The Cheese Wedge to try our best to cater to everyone in the group. All allergies and dietary restrictions can be accommodated and worked with, please just ask.
- Add the date to your calendar, and get ready for a night of gourmet indulgence.
