Chef Chris Mills on Tour

Joey Executive Chef Chris Mills is currently on a media tour to share the five-course menu he has created for his upcoming appearance at James Beard House in New York City. This will be Chris' second appearance at James Beard House....which is often referred to as the Carnegie Hall for chefs.

From the reports we're hearing from media in Edmonton and Calgary, the menu is to die for! Seattle and Vancouver tastings are up next.

Chris visited Global Calgary over the weekend to share the delectable dessert course from his menu...a Vietnamese Banana Cake.
