Join the fun! Support the 14th Annual Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival
Chef Eli Silverthorne, Stratford Chefs School Instructor and Open Kitchen Manager, will be presenting at the Rotary Complex, Kiwanis Presentation Theatre on Sunday, September 11, 1:30-2:15pm.
Showcasing Ontario garlic, Chef Eli will demonstrate how to make Chili Garlic Crunch. A fan favourite, Chef Eli returns to the stage once again this year to support The Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival. “I believe in community engagement, both for myself and the School, and this is my way of sharing. Chili Garlic Crunch is a fun recipe that will appeal to a wide range of palates, I’m excited to share it.”
In addition, for the first time at the Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival, Bob Latham, accredited Sommelier and Frances Latham, a Stratford Chefs School Graduate – both long-time Instructors at the School – will combine their extensive knowledge and experience in these areas to provide attendees with the basic principles of pairing wine and food. Check out their seminar at the Rotary Complex, Mansbridge Room on Saturday, September 10 at 12:30-1pm and 2:30-3pm.

Stratford Chefs School, Class of 2018 | Current Position: Backhouse, Niagara-on-the-Lake
“Since graduating and spending a lot of time with folks who didn’t go to SCS, I realise the incredible breadth of this education. Being exposed to so many different menus, techniques and disciplines has been incredibly valuable in the workplace. I have a confidence and cultivated instinct to effectively problem solve; and the knowledge not just to understand how to do something but *why*. I can’t wait to learn more and more, armed with this amazing foundation, provided by SCS.”
