The 9th Annual BC Restaurant Hall of Fame Gala took place on September 30 at the Italian Cultural Centre, and 11 of BC’s restaurateurs, chefs, bartenders, pioneers, and industry leaders were inducted.

The awards recognize individuals making an impact on the culinary scene. Professional and personal accomplishments make them candidates for this prestigious award.

The inductees represent a range of ages, industry professions, and experience (this year ranging from 17-40+ years). It was an honour to be in the same room as the inductees — and their peers — who have worked hard to make BC a global culinary destination.

Although the awards cover all of BC, many of the inductees were from Metro Vancouver. Our city is lucky to have such talented individuals supporting the restaurant industry. I commend the inductees for their passion and hard work. Read the full article and see the 11 inductees of 2013.
