Chef's Knives

THUNDER BAY – LIVING – It is not a kitchen battle and it is not Hell’s Kitchen, but more of a great Can-Am Exchange as chefs from Duluth and Thunder Bay are going to participate in the Sister City Chef Exchange.

The Sister City Chef Exchange returns to Thunder Bay April 8, featuring the culinary talents of Chef Steve Rantala from Duluth’s Lake Avenue Restaurant and Bar and Chef John Murray of Red Lion Smokehouse. Tickets are still available for what’s sure to be a meal to remember, as both chefs join forces to create a five-course dinner derived from the finest locally sourced ingredients the Lake Superior region has to offer.

“The Sister Cities Chef Exchange fosters beneficial partnerships that showcase the best of both cities culinary offerings,” said Matthew Villella, Chair, Sister Cities Advisory Committee. “Restaurants in both Thunder Bay and Duluth bring to the table exceptional dining experiences for residents on both sides of the border to enjoy.”

Thunder Bay became a Sister City with Duluth, Minnesota in 1980. The common shipping heritage, cultural and geographical similarities and close proximity made becoming Sister Cities a natural fit. Thunder Bay and Duluth citizens regularly visit each other’s communities for business or pleasure.
