Join us as Kelowna hosts Canada's Great Kitchen Party, a Regional Qualifier for the Canadian Culinary Championships. It is a prestigious evening to celebrate Canadian excellence and to provide young Canadians the opportunity to be extraordinary through sport, music, and food.

The evening begins with the culinary competition where seven talented and distinguished chefs from the Okanagan Valley serve their chosen dish, paired with a Canadian beverage, to a panel of judges. Who will be the first regional Kelowna Chef to be named the gold medalist and move on to represent Kelowna in the finals in Ottawa on January 31 and February 1, 2020, in our Nation's capital?

The top chefs selected to compete in this prestigious culinary event are:

  • Rob Walker - Big White Ski Resort

  • James Holmes - Salt & Brick
  • Chris Braun - RauDz Regional Table
  • Brock Bowes - CrAsian Food Corp.
