The First Competition Is Now Underway At The 2011 Canadian Culinary Championships

February 18, 2011 

Day Three of the Canadian Culinary Championships is now underway up here in Kelowna. The judging and refereeing part of it starts for me this afternoon when the chefs return from shopping for ingredients with which they will pair a mystery wine that was given to them without a label last night. The shot above is of all the competitors – this year’s top toques from Vancouver to St. Johns – assembled at Quail’s Gate Winery (note the wine boxes each one is holding). To see who they are and browse many more photos taken from the inside, I’m keeping a running tab of things on our Facebook page here.
