CHEF BLACKIE'S NEXT VENTURE

IN OCTOBER THE AUTUMN EVENING FOR AUTISM WAS HELD AT " NEXT", THE POPULAR STITTSVILLE RESTAURANT OWNED AND OPERATED BY CHEF MICHAEL BLACKIE.  

THE VENUE IS A HIT BECAUSE THE MENU IS ALWAYS UNIQUE; LOVINGLY CONCOCTED IN THE CHEF'S ARTISTIC HEAD.  THIS YEAR'S MEAL DID NOT DISAPPOINT.   

BEFORE THE EVENING BEGAN I HAPPENED TO SPOT CHEF BLACKIE IN HIS OFFICE ON THE LOWER FLOOR OF THE RESTAURANT.   I POPPED MY HEAD IN TO SAY HELLO AND CAUGHT THE CHEF IN THE MIDDLE OF DESIGNING LABELS FOR HIS "NEXT" ADVENTURE.
