Art_factora border=The B.C. Produce Marketing Association and the BC Chefs Association held their 12th Annual Healthy Chef Competition Gala last week at the Hyatt hotel in Vancouver. Hosted by North Vancouver’s own weatherman/comedian Marke Driesschen (of CTV BC fame) the evening is always one of the best foodie highlights of the year. The night included a three course meal, with each person at the table enjoying one of the 10 competing chef’s creations. Dessert was an amazing artistic display and the winner always takes more points for it being as visual stunning as it is delicious. Congrats to everyone involved.

02 – Former Capilano Golf Course and Grouse Mountain Observatory Chef Sylvain Cuerrier takes home the Healthy Plate Award this night on behalf of the River Rock Casino and their stylish Tramonto Italian fine dining room.

03 – Proving that we all love a man in uniform, Cory Kornicki, centre, and his fellow RCMP officers help add some official glamour to the event.

04 – The Dynasty Dessert Trio Plate, which features a marshmallow Moonlight Rabbit, Osmanthus and Apple Pudding and Hedgehog Pastry (by Garley Leung), is an example of the fun and fanciful dessert competition plates.

05 – Always great to sit next to my talented AM650 radio producer Art Factora who helps me sound so good every Tues morning live on air.

06 – They love gold! The dazzling River Rock showgirls help hand out the awards and pose for pics with all the winners.

07 – BC Chefs Association director and host Marcus Von Albrecht and friends accept a cheque for $7,000 for the BC Chefs’ Association Scholarship Program.
