Created by the Chinese Restaurant Award in 2013, Chinese Master Chefs program’s core goal is to honor culinary masters who have achieved success in their own rights, along with keeping culinary traditions and blazing a trail for many aspiring young Chefs in the culinary industry.
In 2013, eight Vancouver Chinese Master Chefs were recognized for their award-records from the Chinese Restaurant Awards. In 2014, the Chinese Restaurant Awards expanded internationally and invited five award-winning Chinese Chefs from Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Shanghai to Vancouver to present their individual Chinese signature dishes while recognizing their international achievement at the Awards’ dinner gala that was held at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver.
Designed to promote a borderless vision of culinary collaboration, Chinese Restaurant Awards’ signature DINING by the Awards is a fascinating series of events for foodies to indulge in creative Chinese cuisine, as well as a meaningful challenge for participating Chefs in designing authentic recipes and utilizing cooking techniques unique for this top-notch culinary experience. Using seasonal ingredients of choice under innovative themes, Chefs will re-imagine and celebrate their culinary influences.
