Autumn Pop Up Dinner with Entertained Catering and Chef Alex

Lots of things can "pop up" ... but dinner?

That's a given if you speak to Chef Alex, a Liaison College grad who heads up Entertained Catering and specializes in pop up dinners (among other things).

Chef Alex caught the Liaison College "food bug" from Chef Tracy, Director and Chef instructor at Liaison College South Coast; they met at a trade show and Chef Tracy's exuberance and passion for food, especially local and fresh foods, rubbed off on Alex in a big way.   Alex found his calling and very quickly enrolled in the culinary program with a vision of exactly what he would do with his skills and knowledge.

Recently, Chef Alex sent out an invitation to his "foodie fans" enticing them to experience a pop up dinner.  Here's the invite:

|Entertained Catering is proud to present our first regional pop-up dinner at Pingle's Farm!

Our dinner will be set in the amazing atmosphere of an apple orchard in full bloom! Our meal will consist of 4 courses all created using local produce and will include a glass of local wine! Keeping in mind that our event is outside, please dress warm. If you are interested in attending please RSVP by September 24th with the number of guests. All questions and RSVPs can be sent to

|Our Menu:


Roasted pumpkin soup served with walnut pesto, fresh sage, and sea salt crisps.


Apple roasted pork served with balsamic roasted parsnips and carrots, and red wine and apple braised red cabbage.

Palate Cleanser:

Apple cider granita.


Apple caramel cheese cake crumble.


Our food sleuth, Michele, ventured out for the dinner and was not disappointed.  The ambience and food were exceptional and of course the surroundings were inspired for the season.

Nestled among the orchard in full splendour, the dinner "pops up" with a colourful presentation and a rustic vibe, the dinner is a successful event with many happy foodies.

Well done Alex - we will be watching to see where you might "pop up" next!
