A veritable dream team of Canada’s most revered chefs will assemble to judge the inaugural Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship competition in Vancouver, BC next month. When judging duties are over, the celebrity chefs will put down their pens and pick up their knives to cook a special five-course fundraising dinner at Hawksworth Restaurant on the evening of Sunday October 27th.

During the day the stellar line up of judges will be keeping an eye on the young chefs who have reached the final round of the Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship and stand to win a $10,000 prize presented by founding sponsor, Chefs’ Table Society of BC and a stage at a top international restaurant.

Chef David Hawksworth will be cooking at the dinner with his fellow judges, each of whom has created a special dish for the five-course meal. Chef Hawksworth will be joined by his Chef de Cuisine Kristian Eligh and Vancouver-based celebrity Chef Vikram Vij around the judging table for this year’s event. Other special guest judges travelling west for the fundraising dinner include the legendary Chef Normand Laprise, owner and head chef of Toqué! and Brasserie T!; TV star and Chef Mark McEwan, star of Top Chef Canada, and successful Corporate Executive Chef of Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants Chef Anthony Walsh.
