Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship Attracts Top Talent

On Sunday, October 27, 2013 at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Vancouver ten red seal chefs created a main course for four with a limited pantry and just two hours to work with. The top three finalists then had two and a half hours to cook a main course and dessert course using all the black box ingredients.

The winner was Chef Paul Moran who received a $10,000 bursary, provided by the Chefs’ Table Society of BC.
