2 weeks ago history was made as two of Canada's Culinary Teams attended and competed at the Culinary World Cup in Luxembourg!
We are so incredibly proud of how hard these teams worked. Their dedication to excellence and passion for culinary arts wowed everyone in attendance. A huge congratulations to each member of the teams that poured their heart and soul into their work.
Junior Culinary Team Canada - received a gold medal in Edible Buffet. Received silver medal in Restaurant of Nations. Placing 5th overall.
Community Catering Team Canada - received a gold medal and finished second overall.
“Competition takes you out of your comfort kitchen and into the kitchen where anything is possible. You can learn so much about yourself, not just as a cook but as a person. My passion for our industry grows every time I compete. Challenge yourself, just do it! You won't regret it!" - Tina Tang, Community Catering Team Captain 🇨🇦 🍽️👩🏻🍳
