The Steinbach Pistons are gearing up for a special evening as we present the 2021 Fire and Ice Banquet – At Home Edition sponsored by Richardson Pioneer. The 11th annual banquet will take place Tuesday February 9th from the comfort of your own home.
Juno nominated country artists the Hunter Brothers will open the program with a special performance starting at 6:15pm. Then host Michelle Sawatzky will guide us through an evening of storytelling led by guest speaker, and Canadian sports television icon, Ron MacLean. This will truly be a Fire and Ice Banquet like no other and we’d love for you to join us.

ABOUT CHEF JP
For the past 20 years, chef JP has been cooking up creative and delicious dishes wherever he goes. Born in Les-Mees, a small cozy town southern France, JP’s culinary career began early on. After graduating from the Centre de Formation Rene Villeneuve, a Digne les Bains in the south of France at age 14, JP had the opportunity to fully show his expertise working in different French restaurants: La Marmite Du Pêcheur which specialized in fish, and a 1st star Michelin restaurant called La Bonne Étape.
After completing his studies at just 18, he accepted the challenge to start working as Sous Chef in a Cuban restaurant called The Little Havana where he developed and refined his culinary techniques.
In 2011 a big challenge was presented to Chef JP, this time on a new continent and in a new culture, to be a Chef de Cuisine at Cassis Bistro – a little French restaurant where they valued local products and showcased the fine dishes from France in Canada. Just to list a few of his accomplishments. Today, Chef JP Charpentier has brought his diverse experience and skill set to HyLife, where he spearheads new culinary projects in his role as Corporate Chef. We are honoured to have someone of his level of expertise be a part of this event.
Chef JP has prepared a stellar 3 course menu for the evening where you have the opportunity to put the finishing touches on your meal and partake in a cooking lesson from JP himself. In each package for two, you will find the following:
Traditional Japanese recipe of breaded pork served with house-made BBQ sauce
Leek & Potato Velouté garnished with smoked crispy bacon, croutons and parsley
HyLife exclusive pork steaks & maple syrup caramelized onions
with HyLife signature seasoning
Includes galette de pomme de terre, asparagus and cauliflower purée
Vanilla crème anglaise, light meringue, salted caramel and toasted almonds
All elements of the meal will be cooked and ready for you to heat up with the exception of the pork steak. This is where your cooking expertise comes in! You will find a recipe card in your meal package which will include a YouTube link to a special cooking lesson from Chef JP with step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the entire meal and sear your pork steaks to perfection. You can use the video to follow along at home as you prepare your dinner. To top it all off each package will include a bottle of wine that has been specifically paired to the meal.
Our meal packages will be delivered to your door 1-2 days prior to the event. Once received, please see the instruction card as it will give directions on how each item should be stored prior to cooking. Bon appétit!
