Alejandro Cancino x Grown vegan degustation
Lauded Urbane chef Alejandro Cancino is spreading his wings in 2018, with a twice-weekly vegan pop-up degustation starting Tuesday January 16. While Alejandro will still be at the helm of the Urbane Group, he’ll be hosting the dinners at vegan West End eatery Grown every Tuesday and Wednesday evening. The intimate dinners have two sittings per night, hosting only eight diners at a time, and will allow Alejandro, who follows a vegan diet at home, to focus more on his creativity through plant-based dining. The ever-changing seven-course degustation menu is at a set price of $120, with the option of matched wines. Some of Alejandro’s flavour ideas and components will then be adapted by Grown’s head chef Nathan Kirk, who will incorporate them into the eatery’s regular menu. Bookings are essential via Grown.
