Chefs for Life 2010 at Goldfish

Chef William Tse of Goldfish Pacific Kitchen

On Sunday May 16 Chef William Tse of Golfish Pacific Kitchen hosted the annual fundraiser to benefit the Vancouver Friends for Life Society. Guests paid $350 each to attend this star chef studded event that featured some of the top chefs in the city who prepared an exquisite twelve course sit-down meal.

At the reception I mingled with a few of the chefs and tasted some of their appetizers including Chef Vikram Vij and his delicious Beef Tartare that was spiced with garam masala; Chef Frank Pabst and his Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese stacks on Pumpernickel crumble which looked like a beautiful garden. Chef Robert Belcham served a charcuterie plate and Chef Ernst Dorfler served a Cheese Ravioli with Truffle oil.

Guests were able to bid on fine and rare wines, getaway trips to exotic destinations and more in the silent auction. The event raised $100,000 to support The Vancouver Friends for Life Society’s programs.
