The Chefs' Table Society of British Columbia is a chef-administered, province-wide collaborative dedicated to creating a foundation for the exchange of information between culinary professionals. We support innovative and sustainable programs that will inspire, educate and nurture our chefs, our producers and our local food industry, all the while promoting standards of excellence with the aim of enhancing the reputation of our regional cuisine.

Our Values

We believe that through dialogue, passion, and fun, we can sustain a nurturing environment for our culinary students and collaborative partnerships with local suppliers, producers and supporters within British Columbia. This translates to:

  • Fostering camaraderie among chefs
  • Supporting local producers
  • Protecting our food security
  • Creating a legacy for our young chefs
