Written By Guest Writer Edibles / Food Events Feb 28, 2013 The Cowichan Chef’s Table for MS SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestCOWICHAN VALLEYThe Cowichan Valley is home to a great deal of culinary talent. We boast a number of gifted chefs who work magic with the great local ingredients our area has to offer. What is perhaps even more remarkable than the talent these chefs possess, however, is their willingness to donate their scant spare time to local charities. The Cowichan Chef’s Table is a group of local chefs who devote their time and resources to “cooking for a cause”. They organize and participate in several annual fundraising events, including the Cowichan Chef’s Table for MS, which takes place this year on Sunday, March 10th at Providence Farm.The Cowichan Chef’s Table for MS is a spectacular 8 course lunch that will leave you too happily stuffed to even contemplate dinner. Each course is prepared by a different chef, and paired with a local wine or beverage. In essence, guests are treated to a mini culinary tour of some of the valley’s best eateries without leaving the comfort of their chair. “We are so fortunate to be hosted by this incredible team of chefs,” longtime attendee Louise Neveau comments, “the food and wine are beyond delicious because of the friendly competition in the kitchen. You don’t have to make lunch or dinner, you meet wonderful people and you support a great cause. How much better can it get?”ScallopsChefs Matt Horn of Cowichan Pasta and Fatima DaSilva of Bistro 161 will be orchestrating this year’s event. The team of fantastic chefs participating includes Allan Aikman and his VIU culinary students, Bill Jones of Magnetic North Cuisine, Steve Elskens of Farm’s Gate Foods, Bruce Wood of Bruce’s Kitchen in Ganges, Ian & Kim Blom of Merridale Cidery, Brad Boisvert of Amusé, Brock Windsor of Stone Soup Inn, and Janice Mansfield of Real Food Made Easy.The Cowichan Chef’s Table for MS is an annual fundraising event for the Scotiabank MS Walk, which raises money to provide support services for those suffering from MS, and for research to find a cure to end this devastating disease. Tickets for the event are $125, with all proceeds going to the MS Society. For tickets or more information on this event please contact the MS Society at 250-748-7010 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org—By Lindsay Muir Crouton ChefsCowichanms SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Guest Writer We get many people writing guest articles for us, as well as past contributors.
