Celebrating Partnerships in honour of Israel’s 61st Anniversary

May 14, 2009

Today, the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University of  Jerusalem and the  Canada-Israël Committee were hosting a reception on Parliament Hill, Celebrating Partnerships in honour of Israel’s 61st Anniversary.

Hundreds of guests, including parliamentarians from all parties, were mingling and enjoying the tapas-style creation  of Israeli  Chef Ovid Alfia while Israeli Opera Star, Yevgeni Shapovalov, was impressing everyone with the strenght of his voice while Ernest Shteynberg was accompanying him on the piano.

The best two hors d’oeuvres were the beef roulades on a bed of avocado and covered with strips of marinated vegetables (right); and a spicy tuna on artichokes served raw with a milder sauce and sprouts(bottom).

Both dishes were delicious, and they were freshly prepared before our eyes during the event, which was a nice change from the usual fare on Parliament Hill.

The catered meat meal was supervised by the Ottawa Vaad Hakashrut. All meat were Glatt Kosher.
UPDATE – May 19, 2009 18:36pm Mitchell Raphël was there.
