An all-vegan chef competition is about to get cooking in Montreal.

The Association végétarienne de Montréal (AVM) is launching a 100% plant-based culinary competition where five chefs will compete for the precious Tofu d’or Trophy, to be awarded by the public’s vote.

“We are paying tribute to this mythical protein block [tofu] by organizing a culinary competition in its honour,” reads the Le Tofu d’or website. “The objective is simple: to prove, with or without tofu, that plant-based cuisine is colourful, eclectic, and tasty!”

The one-night competition will feature gourmet creations by five chefs from the vegan culinary scene all across Quebec.

Guests will be able to taste three signature dishes from each chef and then vote for the winner at the end of the evening.

Chefs taking part in the 2019 edition of Le Tofu d’or are:

  • Sylvain Karpinski, chef at GUSTA
  • MJ Guertin, chef at Vegangels
  • Simon Meloche Goulet, chef at Cabane à tuque sugar shack
  • Chloé Ostiguy, chef at L’Archipel restaurant
  • Mickaël Berthelier, chef at Code Vert restaurant

Along with the gourmet dining experience, Le Tofu d’or supports local causes. Profits from the event will go to support the missions of the AVM, and two animal shelters, SAFE and Refuge-RR.
