Thanks to reality TV, we’ve seen the insides of many commercial kitchens where master chefs create magic. If you’ve ever spend many nights in front of the tube wishing to be a judge on Iron Chef (as I have) here’s your best chance. Dine Out Vancouver presents The Chef’s Table this Saturday, January 21, 2012. An amazing deal, an unique experience and one of the best new additions to Dine Out Vancouver.
Acclaimed Chef of the Year, Margaret Chishol who stands at the helm of Culinary Caperswill be preparing a special communal dining table; right in the kitchen so that you’re close to the action and can see, hear and smell the meal come alive. I’ve eaten my share of catered meals, and can say without reservation that Culinary Capers have some of the tastiest bites in town. This is a one-time event, and tickets are limited so be sure to buys yours now.
