Dining, by Award Winning Chefs 1.0
Inherit. Unite.

Vancouver restaurants have been calling for new and young generation to join the industry. The Chinese Restaurant Awards present another experience-driven dining concept called the “Dining, by Award Winning Chefs” with the goals to create opportunity for creative and skill exchanges among chefs and inspire the new chefs and those who have the interest to develop a career in the Chinese restaurant industry. The first “Dining, by Award Winning Chefs” event brought together four recognized Chinese head chefs and a young Chef team to prepare a 10-course refined and traditional Cantonese menu exclusively for only 30 diners.  This event was sold out within three days.  All proceeds go to Canadian Cancer Society exclusively.  Stay tuned for the announcement of next dining event.
