Canada’s newest meeting place, The Ottawa Convention Centre (OCC), is already known for its exceptional food and the creative team at OCC isn’t resting on their laurels. OCC is trying to give its customers what they want, sometimes even before they know they want it. Case in point: OCC’s new state of the art kitchen studio, “crEATe”.
This space is located at the south end of the Colonel By Foyer on Level 1, facing the Rideau Canal and in full view of passers-by on Colonel By Drive. Appointed with the latest in culinary equipment, technological capabilities and sleek modern décor, crEATe will offer interactive packages to groups willing to abandon their jackets and ties, don an apron and roll up their sleeves while a member of OCC’s culinary team takes them through food preparation step-by-step; afterwards they‘ll enjoy the fruits of their labour!
“We’re particularly excited about the interactive team-building events that will be led by Executive Chef Geoffrey Morden’s talented culinary crew,” enthused OCC general manager Jennifer McCrary. “You can form your own kitchen brigade and cook as a team, or sit back and watch as our Chef demonstrates the latest techniques using fresh, local ingredients and products. Either way, your group will be treated to an exceptional culinary experience.”
“We are confident that crEATe will soon become a “must do” experience in Ottawa” said OCC president Pat Kelly.
Wine and food pairings and tastings, will also take place in crEATe, which offers an exclusive cellar wine list, and accommodates groups of 15 guests seated or 25 reception- style.
“We are not aware of any other Canadian convention centre with a product like crEATe,” said Pat Kelly.
