Not too long ago, I had the privilege of joining a judging panel for the Canadian Culinary Federation’s 2011 Healthy Chef Competition. With clip board in hand, I tagged along 10 other veteran chefs from one competitor’s station to the next, tasting and evaluating with scrutiny.
Oh, might I add that I was the first female judge in 48 years? I was also the youngest. Talk about a humbling experience.
The Canadian Culinary Federation – Fédération Culinaire Canadienne (CCFCC) will be hosting their 48th annual National Chef Conference in Vancouver from June 12 to 15. For cooks and chefs, this is a wonderful time to network, share ideas, and to hone their skills. For the public, we are presented with an array of top-notch culinary events to enjoy. Check out the impressive agenda.
I look forward to emcee’ing Dragon Feast of the Century Luncheon, an epic Chinese culinary event showcasing 16 internationally acclaimed chefs. Wow.
I’ll also be attending Lunch with Chef Andrew George and Métis Nation to experience modern Métis Nation cuisine. I especially can’t wait to try their game meat preparations, such as musk ox, buffalo, and venison.
Food enthusiasts should not miss these fantastic events, ranging from breakfast with top chefs, to delectable luncheons, to the extravagant President’s Ball.
