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.
