The guests couldn't get enough of the delicious salmon creations by Vancouver Island University student chefs at the competition in Vancouver March 22.
For the first time in its 18-year history, the Healthy Chef Competition welcomed a team from Vancouver Island to compete against nine other teams from the Metro Vancouver area on March 22, 2017. This annual competition – presented by the BC Produce Marketing Association and the BC Chefs Association – was a fun evening of gourmet dining.
Led by Chef Debbie Shore, Chef Francois De Jong, and Chef David Nolan, the team from the Culinary Institute of Vancouver Island / Vancouver Island University created culinary delights that featured vegetables as the main focus of the entrée plates, with B.C. farm-raised salmon being used as the perfect accompaniment to create a healthy, balanced meal.
The salmon was proudly donated by Cermaq Canada, which has participated in the competition for several years.
The company was pleased to be able to support Vancouver Island students, and to be able to donate healthy, farmed Cermaq salmon to be showcased along with other BC specialties.
