James Beard Award Nominee Chef Edward Lee headlines David Hawksworth & Friends Culinary Adventure 2013

David Hawksworth & Friends Culinary Adventure 2013 returns to The Clubhouse on Langara Island, one of the West Coast Fishing Club’s collection of luxury fishing lodges situated in Haida Gwaii, in northern British Columbia.

This year marks the seventh annual Culinary Adventure, presented by acclaimed Vancouver chef David Hawksworth – owner of Canada’s restaurant of the year – together with Chef Edward Lee, owner of 610 Magnolia Restaurant and MilkWood both in Louisville, Kentucky. In 2010, Chef Lee was invited to compete in Iron Chef America, beating Iron Chef Jose Garces in Battle Tongue & Cheek, and more recently Chef Lee was named a finalist in the 2013 James Beard Awards for Best Chef Southeast category. A Brooklyn native trained in New York City kitchens, Lee’s cooking style is a combination of his Korean heritage, New York training and embrace of the American South.

The four night trip will feature cooking classes with both Chef Hawksworth and Chef Lee, wine-tasting classes, salmon and halibut fishing in the pristine waters of Haida Gwaii, treks through the virgin rainforest of Graham Island, beach-side picnics and wildlife viewing, before returning to The Clubhouse to enjoy exceptional cuisine from two of North America’s most enthralling chefs.

The Clubhouse is situated on Langara Island’s highest point offering spectacular views of pristine ocean and lush, green rain forest, not to mention the best salmon fishing in the world.

Limited space remains for David Hawksworth & Friends Culinary Adventure. For more information call toll-free 1-888-432-6666 or visit www.westcoastfishingclub.com.
