The Canadian Culinary Federation (CCFCC) has been invited to send a team to the world’s newest culinary competition, The Dubai World Hospitality Championships 2013 . The team is a stellar line up of previous Bocuse d’Or competitors: team captain Michael Noble (NOtaBLE, Calgary) 1995, 1997; Chris Mills (JOEY Restaurant Group, Vancouver) 2001; Andrew Springett (SAIT, Calgary) 2003; Scott Jaeger (The Pear Tree, Burnaby) 2007; Bernard Casavant (culinary consultant, Kelowna), 1991; Ryan Stone (Centreplate Group, Vancouver) 2011; Morgan Wilson (Fairmont Empress Hotel, Victoria) 2005; along with Arthur Chen, (Shaw Conference Centre , Edmonton) who has competed in World Culinary Olympics as a pastry chef since 2000. The team manager, Dr. Jane Ruddick, is also a Bocuse laureate. The Canadian judge in Dubai will be the Shaw’s executive chef and mentor to countless cooks and chefs across the country, Simon Smotkowitz. The competition runs November 17-19. Canada is taking part at the invitation of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and the Emirates Culinary Guild. The event is sanctioned by the World Association of Chefs Societies and it is expected to become the Middle East’s premier culinary competition. Who wouldn’t want to go to Dubai? Let’s hope everyone gets a few hours off to shop. Edmontonians will get a chance to taste the excitement at an event at Joey on October 9.
