Thirty aspiring apprentice chefs from Fairmont Hotels’ Pacific Northwest Region will take the spotlight at Fairmont Pacific Rim. The evening kicks off with cocktails and canapés at 5:30pm, followed by a seven-course tapas tasting menu, complemented with wine. Coleen Christie, anchor of CTV News at Five and CTV Noon News, will again serve as the evening’s master of ceremonies, drawing attention to the culinary inspirations and cooks in the kitchen.


Live music during the cocktail reception, together with casual lounge and high-top seating will set the ambiance, as guests savour the flavours reflective of Canada’s most celebrated cuisine. Each hotel is tasked with creating three tapas to match a notable region, taking guests on a cross-Canada journey of east meets west. Highlighted regions will include: Atlantic Canada, French Canadian, Cottage Country, the Prairies, the Canadian Rockies and the backyard of west coast BC. 

For the second year in a row, a panel of culinary experts will judge each course and award one winning team. Diners will also be asked to judge a ‘people’s choice’ recipient and prizes will be awarded to the winning apprenticeship team.

Tickets are $129 per person and include the reception, dinner, wine, taxes and gratuities. 

Tickets are available through the event coordinator at or 604-695-5557.
