Congratulations to Chef Jesse Friesen of Merchant Kitchen and Pizzeria Gusto for his showing at the Great Canadian Kitchen Party held in Winnipeg on November eighth. Chef Jesse will move on the the Canadian Culinary Championships in Kelona B.C. in February of 2019. It was a busy week for Chef Jesse who awed Red River Colleges School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts Homecoming dinner the night before with his Sake Cured Trout. Winnipeg is a true treasure chest of culinary talent and Jesse is one of our shining stars. Bravo Chef!
