Call to Action 83: What Does Reconciliation Taste Like?

Gold & Fife designed a momentously meaningful event that reinterpreted the Truth & Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action 83 that pairs Indigenous and Non-Indigenous artists to undertake collaborative projects and produce works that contribute to reconciliation efforts.

Here culinary artistry took centre stage as an ensemble of 11 Indigenous and Non-Indigenous players and flavours came together.

Partnership for Excellence:
The art of Cooking with Fire

Gold & Fife shone the spotlight on one of the world’s most ceremonial eating, drinking, and gathering experiences—the authentic Argentine Sunday asado. 

Never had the Argentine wife-and-husband duo who made up Cultura Tiempo, been given carte blanche to recreate the asado de Domingo (Sunday asado) for a limited number of guests. 

The event began at 11AM where mate—Argentina’s most ceremonial and integral beverages—was shared and passed. From there the day flowed without a strict attachment to time—just like in Argentina.

Partnership for Excellence:
The art of Pastry

A truly original one-of-a-kind Gold & Fife dinner featuring sweet and savoury courses from acclaimed pastry chefs, paired with delicious teas and champagnes – exquisite!  Gold & Fife brought together two of Canada’s most seasoned and revered pastry chefs, The Food Network’s Wall of Bakers, Toronto’s Joanne Yolles and Montreal’s Patrice Demers to join the Merrill House’s host chef Michael Sullivan and tasked them with creating both a sweet and savoury course.
