Earlier this spring we received some prestigious and exciting news: an invite to compete at Gold Medal Plates! Chef Paul will be thinking of dishes till October when he heads off to Victoria to compete provincially, and if he's successful, you'll see him at the Canadian Culinary Championships in Kelowna in February 2019, one of the most competitive chef competitions in the country.
Gold Medal Plates supports Canada’s Olympic athletes through the ultimate celebration of Canadian Excellence in cuisine, wine, the arts and athletic achievement. Celebrated in eleven cities across Canada, Gold Medal Plates features the premier chefs in each city in a competition to crown a gold, silver and bronze medal culinary team in each city, and subsequently nation-wide at the Canadian Culinary Championships. Since 2004, Gold Medal Plates has received tremendous support and accolades all across Canada, and generated a combined net total of over $13 million for Canada’s Olympic athletes.
Five to ten chefs compete regionally for the chance to represent his or her province at the finale. It's an intense series of culinary challenges. It is truly an honour to be asked to compete, as the GMP website says: To be invited to compete at a regional level is a notch in the belt. To win the gold is a major achievement!
This is a pretty big deal for Paul and the team at BRODO, as it is a reflection of all the hard work and creativity we put into our dishes, and we can't wait to join our fellow chefs on the road to gold!
