Ten Degrees Chocolate – Chef’s Table

October 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ten Degrees Chocolate is thrilled to be welcoming Guest Chefs Jack Christensen and Angel Raymundo to our kitchen for our Chef’s Table on October 16!


25-year-old Chef Jack Christensen started his career at JOEY Restaurants, worked at River Café, and is now at CP Rail with Royal Canadian Pacific. He has competed in provincial skills competitions (twice) with one bronze, Vancouver for a JOEY company competition, Hawksworth Young Chef, and internationally in Shanghai winning a bronze and silver. Christensen is “farm to table focused” and loves using preserves and fermentation as well as wild foraged foods in his dishes.

Angel is Guatemalan born and raised in Calgary. He started his career at Earls 12.5 years ago while attending the Professional Chef Program at SAIT. He then moved on to hone his skills at restaurants such as La Chaumiere, Cassis, Mercato, Suzette, Teatro, Royale, River Café and Deane house. With a French style of cooking, he enjoys using different methods of fermentation and preserves to enhance flavours and balance of dishes. Angel has always enjoyed and tried to base his direction on “Farm to Table” Chef Christensen and Chef Raymundo have accepted our challenge of incorporating chocolate into each dish… and we are incredibly excited to see the dishes they create! Bison anyone…
