The very best Vancouver and area chefs will present tasting dishes at an evening of unforgettable cuisine in support of two great causes, Bocuse d’Or Canada and Breakfast For Learning. This event promises to be the premier culinary experience of the year and will include a silent auction featuring exclusive dining opportunities, golf packages, products from world-renowned culinary brands such as Le Creuset and much, much more. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Bocuse d’Or Canada and the local and regional efforts ofBreakfast for Learning.
Competing at the level demanded by the Bocuse d’Or requires limitless patience, extreme dedication and thousands of hours spent in training and coaching. First and foremost, though it needs a chef who can compete shoulder to shoulder with the best chefs in the world and whose talents and unwavering commitment set them apart, for Canada that chef is Alex Chen. Chef Chen grew up and fell in love with cooking in Vancouver. His career has taken him across North America with positions in some of the continents finest hotels including Four Seasons Toronto, Four Seasons Chicago and most recently as the Executive chef of The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows: he has now returned to Vancouver to prepare for the world’s most prestigious culinary competition.
About Bocuse d’Or
In January 2013 the very best chefs from twenty-four countries
will convene in Lyon, France for the most demanding culinary competition in the world. Legendary French Chef, Paul Bocuse and Albert Romain, organizer of the trade exhibition, founded the Bocuse d’Or in 1987. Their vision was to create a competition that would bring the greatest chefs out from behind closed doors and onto the world stage. They wanted to share the atmosphere and life of a great kitchen and give an international audience the opportunity to see these great chefs at work.www.bocusedorcanada.ca
