Monogram and chef Patrick Kriss honour frontline healthcare workers with luxury dining experiences

We celebrate, connect and show appreciation for the ones we love most around dinner tables. When the pandemic hit, the dining-out experience vanished. Many of our favourite restaurants shuttered their windows indefinitely, and we were relegated indoors, unable to spend much-needed time together. World-renowned chef, Patrick Kriss of Alo Food Group and luxury appliance brand Monogram, are bringing the experience of a perfect meal enjoyed together back. And just like they did this past summer, they’re doing it to thank frontline healthcare workers, the ones who’ve risked it all to help us get back to the things we love.

Together, the culinary duo is extending this delectable foodie experience that first launched earlier this year. On September 19, they hosted an exclusive luxury dining experience prepared on Monogram’s state-of-the-art Professional Range to give back to and honour 25 frontline workers nominated by you.

After receiving hundreds of nominations, an inspiring group of emergency room doctors, nurse practitioners, social workers, respiratory therapists and more gathered for the event and were honoured for their fearless, courageous work. One nurse practitioner worked tirelessly with her neurosurgical team to help patients and their families navigate their care through the pandemic. A doctor helped deliver babies of COVID-positive mothers. At the same time, a social worker continued travelling to group homes, hospitals and prisons to provide crucial mental health services to those in greatest need.

Building off the momentum of this incredible event, Monogram will continue to honour and tell the stories of GTA frontline healthcare workers this fall with the chance for them to dine at Kriss’ esteemed Alo in Toronto. Nominees will have the opportunity to win one of six exclusive dinners for two at Alo, courtesy of Monogram. Know a frontline worker who deserves an unforgettable meal? Click here to nominate them from now until December 6, 2021.

As the mastermind behind the award-winning restaurants Alo, Alobar and Aloette, Kriss is an icon in Toronto’s fine-dining scene. Alo itself has been recognized worldwide, is listed as the No. 1 restaurant as ranked by Canada’s 100 Best four years in a row and was the only Canadian restaurant on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants annual list this fall. 

The winning frontline workers will relish an extraordinary culinary experience of a dinner for two at Alo, enjoying their luxurious tasting menu and wine pairing. Plus, Monogram and Toronto Life will continue to tell the winners’ stories, spotlighting their tireless work and inspiring dedication throughout the pandemic.

Attention to detail and fine-tuning of craftsmanship is at the core of Monogram’s DNA. Monogram’s new Professional Range brings all the power and precision demanded by the world’s finest chefs into the home kitchen for those who love cooking and hosting. You don’t have to be a pro like Kriss to get the most out of your cooking experience—Monogram will help you get there.
