Oh god! I am seriously so excited for this! I’m refraining from using a million exclamation marks. Imagine some of the world’s best chefs and best food all coming together in one room. Welcome to the 2011 National Chefs Conference!
If you haven’t heard already, Vancouver is hosting the 48th annual National Chefs Conference from June 10-16. These are a series of culinary events that are not to be missed by any foodie, food lover, gourmet, or food and wine enthusiast. Tickets are open to the public, so yes, you should come!

If you want to mix and mingle with some of Canada’s and the world’s greatest culinary chefs I strongly suggest this event. It’s a celebration of food and incredible talent and it’s a great opportunity to submerse yourself with industry professionals.

The events range from exquisite buffets, 3, 5, 11, 12 course lunch and dinners, breakfast with Rob Feenie, breakfast with Robert Clark, chocolate demonstrations with Thomas Haas, molecular gastronomy demonstrations, competition dinners with up and coming chefs, a National Juniors Chef Challenge, nutritional seminars, an Aboriginal Potlatch Supper, a woman in the industry luncheon, a Chinese Chefs Luncheon, a golf tournament and last but not least, an extravagant President’s Ball on the last day. I know! Don’t you want to attend them all? There are actually many more events than this too, so for full details see here.
The conference is going to attract hundreds of people who are all passionate about food. Expect to see top celebrity chefs and of course some of Vancouver’s best. I’m certainly going to go to as many as I can so I hope to see you there! I’m so excited I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas! This is definitely one of the food festivals of the year and it is not to be missed!
