What is your first hockey memory?
I would say that one of my first hockey memories is my dad and uncle watching "La soirée du hockey molson," on Radio Canada. Which was broadcast every Saturday night. Or maybe me going through my older cousin's card collections.

What dish do you most associate with hockey?
Spaghetti bolognese is THE dish my mom would make me before I played hockey.

Why are you taking time out of your busy schedule to be part of this game?
I'm taking time for this event for a few reasons. The cause, the fun, the food, and the love of the game ;)

This is a charity game to raise money for Community Food Centres Canada. Can you say a few words about why their work is important?
Food security is important to me. I have been lucky enough to live without the stress of being in a precarious situation. And I'm grateful for it. Everyone should have access to food and be able to eat with dignity. Food security systems help bring communities together and have a much wider reach than just responding to hunger.

See which Montreal + Toronto chefs are worth their salt on the ice. Tickets for The Drake Barn Burner Hockey Game on Feb. 4 @ Essroc Arena in Prince Edward County are on sale here and include not-so-average concessions by the chefs and participating restaurants.
After the game, the chefs will trade their skates back in for their chef whites so they can do what they do best. Join us for a post-game strolling dinner with chef-designed stations and Lot. 40 cocktails by the fire, ice cold Moosehead Lager, Norman Hardie + Rosehall Run wines + more! Tickets for The Drake Barn Burner Post-Game Dinner at Drake Devonshire are on sale here.
