NVICA March 2024 Letter

Dear Members of the North Vancouver Island Culinary Association,

I hope this email finds you all in good spirits and enjoying the beginning of a new month. As we move forward into March, I wanted to update you on some important events and opportunities within our culinary community.

Firstly, please mark your calendars for our Annual General Meeting (AGM), which will take place on March 4th at 6:30 PM. Due to current circumstances, we will be holding the AGM via Zoom Call. This is an important opportunity for us to come together, reflect on the past year, and discuss plans for the future of our association.

Additionally, I am thrilled to announce that I will be attending the Western Conference in Calgary from March 8th to 10th. This conference presents a wonderful opportunity for networking, learning, and gaining inspiration to further elevate our local culinary scene.

Unfortunately, we have had to postpone our Tree Island Yogurt tour until April 8th. However, we are eagerly looking forward to visiting the new facility and witnessing the exciting developments firsthand.

On March 16th, we will be hosting a "Back to Basics" food demo at the Farmers Market. This is an excellent opportunity for us to engage with the community, showcase our culinary skills, and promote the importance of utilizing fresh, local ingredients.

For those interested in furthering their culinary education, we will be offering a Food Safe Level 2 course on March 23rd and 24th. This course is essential for anyone working in the food service industry, and I encourage all members to take advantage of this opportunity.

I also want to take a moment to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the Canadian Culinary teams that recently participated in the IKA/Culinary Olympics. The National team brought home a gold and silver medal, while the Junior team won two silver medals, and the NAIT Culinary team Canada also earned a silver medal. Our very own Ronald St Pierre and Xavier Bauby were there to support and mentor the teams, and I am eagerly looking forward to hearing their stories from Germany.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share. Here's to a successful and fulfilling month ahead!

Warm regards,

Jonathan Frazier, President North Vancouver Island Culinary Association
