The calm before the storm: out back before the Oceanwise Battle Royale

What with every Chef worth his salt fully embracing Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program it was fantastic to see five of this year’s Top Chef Canada contenders reuniting for a night of redemption, each cooking a dish using Ocean Wise approved ingredients at Toronto’s Crush Wine Bar.

General Manager Sarah Lyons played the role of MC and gracious hostess, leading us through a night of great food, great wines, and some serious hilarity.

Three cheers for all involved in what proved to be a fantastic event to increase public awareness of the Ocean Wise program.

Edinburgh-born/Toronto-based Sommelier, consultant, writer, judge, and educator Jamie Drummond is the Director of Programs/Editor of Good Food Revolution… And yes, that young lady did have the loudest voice ever.
