Mmmm, curry. It’s hot, (often) spicy, and guaranteed to warm you right down to your toes on a rainy day. And despite what that generic jar of curry powder would have you believe, it’s a very diverse dish with endless cultural interpretations.

On March 3, eight top Vancouver chefs will face off to make the ultimate curry–and you can try them all. The second annual Curry Cup takes place at Heritage Hall from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., hosted by the always effervescent Fred Lee.

Expect one spicy evening.

Chefs from the following restaurants will compete:

The event is a fundraiser for the Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia.

Last year, the chef Taryn Wa won the inaugural Curry Cup competition. The owner of the Savoury Chef catering company made a Malay-style local lamb rendang with crispy quails egg, garlic chips, and roti.

Wa is returning as one of the judges this year, along with the king of curry himself, chef Vikram Vij, and several food and wine writers.

Guests can wander the chefs’ stations and sample the curries. To temper the flames, wine tastings are included along with beer from R&B Brewing.

Tickets cost $60 per person; for more info, see the Chefs’ Table Society website.
