Thomas Haas Chef

Thomas Haas Chef

It was billed as the dinner of a lifetime. North Vancouver’s own Pino Posteraro, of Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill fame in Yaletown, played host to an elite group of famous foodies at his restaurant earlier this month to serve a $500 a plate, 12-course feast in support of the BC’s Chefs’ Table Soiety (CTS). The “Senza Frontiere” (without borders) dinner helped raise funds for the creation of bursaries and scholarships for young, emerging, student chefs. Vancouver’s finest chefs shared kitchen duty as they put their egos on hold and cooked up a storm that was dressed to impress. Congrats.
