We are very happy to report that Culinary Team BC won a Silver Medal in the Regional Team Competition at the World Culinary Olympics last month in Erfurt, Germany!
Team BC prepared a full display table of cold foods including canapés, appetizers, buffet platters, vegetarian items, main courses, pastries and showpiece. The theme of their table display was “Food as Jewelry”, which drew accolades from the viewing public.
Working under Manager, Jane Ruddick of J.R. Food Consultants, Vancouver, and Coach, Chef Hamid Salimian, the Team is made up of Brandon Pirie (Diva at the Met. Restaurant, Vancouver), Rolando Sanares (Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel), Amir Bahmani (Fraiche Restaurant, West Vancouver) and Sharlyn So (Diva at the Met.Restaurant, Vancouver). Fumiko Moreton (Terminal City Club, Vancouver) is the Team’s pastry chef.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
