Last night I attended a Taste of Canada, this event was the opening event for the 48th Annual Canadian Chefs Convention that is being held in Vancouver. This welcome reception featured 14 food and beverage stations where junior chefs and their mentors created an unforgettable taste of their province. Each station represented regional cuisine, and was paired with a Canadian beverage. Opened with the Komo Gway Dancers, an XFour Martini Station, and the BC Chefs’ Association Awards.
Hosted by the Canadian Culinary Federation Culinaire Canadienne (CCFCC) and the BC Chefs’ Association, the conference offers chefs, culinarians, junior chefs and guests the opportunity to learn from industry leaders, watch and learn from culinary challenges, and taste the best of British Columbia and Canadian cuisine.
Guests mingled and tasted there were through the many different tasting stations and regions of Canada.
