If you’ve got a craving for curry, then look no further. The Chefs’ Table Society of B.C. presents the Curry Cup on Tuesday, March 4th. Eight chefs will compete with their own unique curry dish to win the inaugural curry competition. For those who’ve never tried it, curry is a dish with roots in cultures across the world, including Indian, Thai, Malaysian, and Indonesian cuisine. Though it can refer to many dishes, in general, curry is a dish with meat and/or vegetables cooked in a richly spiced sauce. Curry is usually eaten with rice and a flatbread such as naan or roti. For many chefs, curry is the ultimate family-style staff meal and the proud product of their cultural heritage.

Join emcee Fred Lee and a distinguished panel of judges in choosing a winner for the first-ever Curry Cup. Judges include Angus An (chef/owner of Longtail and Maenam), Jeff Hamada (Japanese Canadian artist/creator of Boooooom), Joie Alvaro Kent (food writer and restaurant award judge), Mijune Pak (founder of Follow Me Foodie and food columnist for the WE Vancouver), and Mike Bernardo (Director of Operations/Wine Director at Vij’s). You’ll get to try eight unique curries highlighting diverse flavours from around the world, all made by local Vancouver area chefs.

Competing chefs include:

Tickets are $59 and include eight different international curries, wines from Mt. Boucherie and Dirty Laundry, and craft beer from Steamworks and R&B Brewing Co. All proceeds from the Curry Cup will go towards the Chefs’ Table Society of B.C. in order to support their various scholarships and charitable partners. Growing Chefs, a non-profit society based in Vancouver, will be presented with a cheque at the event.
