Join this high altitude reception for a culinary ‘Taste of BC’, live music, and a chance to mingle with all conference attendees. The evening will feature an array of BC inspired foods from hot smoked and candied salmon to an Okanagan Valley Salad Market, as well as wines from around BC. Join us in embracing the rich food culture of BC, while overlooking the breathtaking view of the Whistler mountains.
We are pleased to announce the Food Network’s Top Chef Canada Winner and Product Development Chef for Cactus Club, Chef Matthew Stowe, will be our special guest and an active participant at the reception.
Chef Stowe will lead a team of care home chefs to design an array of exquisite, and cost effective, dishes that could be produced in care homes. These featured dishes will then be intermixed among the Fairmont catered dishes for your tasting enjoyment, but it doesn’t end there. We will be challenging all guests to determine which dishes are the Fairmont’s catered dishes and which are the cost effective Chef Stowe inspired dishes.We assure you this will not be an easy task! Delegates who are able to correctly guess the dishes will then be entered into the prize draw at the end of the evening. This will be an event you won’t want to miss!
Concurrent sessions are filling up fast. If you don’t want to be disappointed, sign up to become a delegate for next month’s BC Care Providers Association Annual Conference before we are sold out!
