Fennel and carrot glazed trout by The Stop CFC

On November 5th, 2014 The Stop Community Food Centre held their 10th annual signature fundraising event called What’s on the Table at Daniels Spectrum.  It’s their signature fundraising event with a focus on great food from top local chefs and restaurants.

Being the top-notch food-focused charity gala that it is, there were tons of amazing dishes to try. This includes the one in the photo above with trout donated by Blue Goose Foods prepared by The Stop CFC’s own Chef Scott MacNeil. They also did an amazing job last year with poached trout olive oil.

Another interesting bite was from Chef Nick Liu of DaiLo restaurant with a handheld Smoked Trout Betel Leaf, satay peanut sauce, fried shallot
