Culinary Workshop w/Chef Emma Cardarelli
Chef Emma Cardarelli is a linchpin in the Montréal restaurant scene, especially when it comes to Italian specialties like fresh pasta. She will make her classic Tortellini in brodo–demonstrating the dish start to finish from clarifying the broth to making and shaping the tortellini.
After completing double major in English and Psychology from the University of King’s College, Emma Cardarelli decided she would like to try something different. She headed out west to try her hand at cooking in a professional kitchen at Lake O’Hara Lodge in Yoho National Park. This is where Emma determined that the life of a professional chef was for her. She returned to Montreal to attend cooking school at L’Institute de tourisme et hotelerie du Quebec where her teacher, Jean-Paul Grappe introduced her to Frederic Morin and David MacMillan, now of Joe Beef. After working with Fred and Dave for many years in a couple of different establishments, Globe and Liverpool House, Emma was ready to strike out on her own. She opened Nora Gray in September 2011 with business partners Ryan Gray and Lisa Mc Connell. After six years, Nora Gray is still going strong and only getting busier. At the moment, Emma is looking forward to opening second restaurant with Ryan Gray and Marley Sniatowsky in November 2017. @noragraymtl
