Chefs from the three city's top local restaurants will compete in a paring challenge, featuring locally grown and sourced ingredients to vie for awards for Judges' Best BC VQA Pairing, Judges' Best Dish Award and Consumers' Choice Award for Dish of the Night. The competing chefs will be awarded points for use of a local ingredient in some complement of their dish.
There will also be an opportunity to meet Guest Chef Ned Bell from the Vancouver Aquarium at an exclusive Ocean Wise Bubbles & Seafood station.
The three events support local charities, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Ocean Wise, The Arts Club and BC Hospitality Foundation. Tickets are available online.
