4th annual Curry Cup Winner Announced

Chef Felix Zhou Wins 2017 Curry Cup Championship 

The Chefs' Table Society of BC congratulates chef Felix Zhou and the team from Heritage Asian Eatery for winning the 2017 Curry Cup grand championship and People's Choice award with the Thai Duck Curry with Potato Rosti dish.

On Monday, March 6, a sold out crowd of 200 attendees took part in the fourth annual Curry Cup competition at Heritage Hall. Eight acclaimed chefs from across the Vancouver culinary scene faced-off to determine which curry would reign supreme. Flavours of the competing curries ranged from sweet, to spicy with ingredients that were both traditional and unexpected. The event raised $2000.00 to support Project Chef.

Competing chefs included:

Last year's winner, chef Roger Ma of Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, returned as a judge along with Alexandra Gill, Vikram Vij and Lee Mann. 

For the fourth year in a row, Fred Lee, Man About Town, acted as emcee. The event featured not only curries from each competing restaurant but also wines from Evolve Cellars, beer from R&B Brewing, Jack Daniels cocktail samples. A special thanks to our fourth year sponsor Lonsdale Event Rentals and Bella Gelateria for providing tasty gelato for dessert.

Background:

The Chefs' Table Society of BC wants to stop Bill 24, and needs help to spread the word, before it's too late.

They urgently call on people of BC to read this and then send a note to the government Tell BC Government to Stop Bill 24

Bill 24 proposes to divide the Agriculture land reserve into 2 zones, the changes being put forward are in zone 2 which contains 90%  of the protected land. This will essentially open the door to remove 90% of the mere 5% of B.C.'s  ALR.

The Chefs' Table Society of British Columbia has had a social media storm brewing - with selfies and calls to action with the hash tag #chefs4ALR and #killbill24

Now they are calling upon the media and public to help spread the word and call to protect BC farmland  - read this open letter, entitled Farmland is Important to Me.

Quote:

"Chefs and Restaurateurs have worked hard over the past 40 years to support our farms for not only the food they produce but also the culture they bring to our industry. Growing local food is not a thing of the past it is our present and our future, never has the demand been higher for locally sourced nutritious food." - Scott Jaeger, president, Chefs' Table Society of British Columbia

The Chefs’ Table Society of BC is pleased to announce the Fourth Annual Spot Prawn Festival. Lasting for the duration of the season, the six to eight week Spot Prawn Festival will kick off on Saturday May 8th from 12pm – 3pm with a community and family-friendly event at False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf.

This rain or shine launch will feature delicious spot prawn dishes, spot prawn specials at the award-winning Go Fish, a gathering of Vancouver’s chef and restaurant community, and the arrival of the season’s first spot prawns as local fishermen return to the wharf with their catch. Get all the details after the jump…

Launch date: Saturday May 8th, 12:00pm – 3:00pm
Duration: The Spot Prawn Festival will run for eight weeks
Buying times: After 1pm daily
Location: False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf | MAP

The annual Spot Prawn Festival will provide another local, fresh, and sustainable ingredient for our restaurant chefs and home cooks to enjoy. Those who take pride in serving the bounty of British Columbia can use this annual six-to-eight week window of opportunity to purchase live, locally sourced and sustainable spot prawns directly from our local fishermen at False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf and at participating restaurants serving local spot prawns. At $12 per pound for the public ($10 for Chefs’ Table members), they are an excellent and affordable alternative to the farmed tiger prawns.

This year the Spot Prawn Festival is proud to feature wine samples from Ganton & Larsen Prospect Winery, a kids play area from the Vancouver Aquarium Ocean Wise Program, a special guest speaker from the David Suzuki Foundation, and entertainment from local blues-rock band Terminal Station. As the Chefs’ Table Society is continuing to spread awareness for it’s latest cookbook Vancouver Cooks 2, festival goers can purchase books at the festival and have them signed by their favourite Vancouver chefs.

The festival creates a virtual ‘spot prawn frenzy’, as the event is growing bigger and better each year! Bringing energy and excitement down to the docks, attendees will flock to local fishermen at the wharf generating long line-ups for spot prawns bought fresh off the boats.

Local. Sustainable. Delicious. Join us for the 4th Annual Local Spot Prawn Festival!
