Dinner at Gairloch Gardens - Oakville

A Dinner in Gairloch Gardens hosted by chef Grant Van Gameren in support of Oakville Galleries.

On September 7, Oakville Galleries and Project and Construction Management Inc. (PCM) will present Cocina: featuring acclaimed chef Grant van Gameren. The event will raise essential funds for Oakville Galleries’ educational and artistic programming. Oakville Galleries’ signature fundraising event, A Dinner in Gairloch Gardens is a landmark culinary experience, bringing together the area’s most respected leaders, patrons and arts enthusiasts for a lavish six-course meal under late summer skies. Held in southeast Oakville’s beautiful Gairloch Gardens, a 12-acre garden along the shore of Lake Ontario, this year’s dinner will be prepared and hosted by celebrated chef Grant van Gameren of Toronto’s Bar Isabel and Bar Raval, paired with wines from Niagara’s Vineland Estates.

For the fifth year running, this artisanal feast will be served al fresco among the 15,000 blooms of Gairloch Gardens. Proceeds from the event support Oakville Galleries’ award-winning artistic and educational programming in our community.

Through exhibitions, collections, public programs, and a broad range of in-school and on-site arts education activities, Oakville Galleries’ programs foster creative engagement and community development in equal measure.

The evening will begin in Gairloch’s rose garden with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before moving to the clear-top tent for dinner with chef van Gameren. Following the main course, there will be a live auction featuring VIP travel packages and exclusive private dining experiences.

Credited with revolutionizing the Toronto dining scene, Grant van Gameren’s rise towards one of Canada’s most celebrated chefs began shortly after opening the Black Hoof in 2008.

His next two establishments, Bar Isabel and Bar Raval also garnered acclaimed reviews in 2012 and 2014, respectively.

Delving into a new business venture in 2017 with long-time friend, chef Chris Brown (formerly of Perigee and Citizen Catering), Grant and Chris have created an elevated and unparalleled catering experience in the GTA with their new catering company, Victor Dries. Bringing their benchmark of quality directly to your homes and businesses, Victor Dries offers full service event planning with a long-standing adherence to the classic elements of service: graciousness and efficiency, affability and respect.
