Posts Tagged ‘Goldfish Pacific Kitchen’

Through work, I had the opportunity to attend the 2011 BC Healthy Chef Competition dinner. On March 16, chefs representing 10 venues were competing against each other by cooking up some tasty entrees and desserts using fruit and vegetables. The purpose of this event is to help promote healthy eating while raising money for the Mix it Up! campaign, Canadian Cancer Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Here I want to report back what went on that evening. Put your bib on because this is going to be a mouth-watering post!!

The competing units included:

  • Chinese Canadian Chef Association
  • Delizia Fusion Cuisine
  • Dynasty Seafood Restaurant
  • Executive Hotels & Resorts
  • Goldfish Pacific Kitchen
  • The Hyatt Regency Vancouver
  • The International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Vancouver
  • River Rock Casino Resort
  • Vancouver Community College
  • The Well Restaurant

The evening was a lot of fun. First, we got to check out each booth and watched the chefs as they prepared for our dishes. At the same time, a panel of judges visited each booth and evaluated each entry based on a number of things including taste, presentation, use of six fruit or vegetables to promote healthy eating and the table display.
