Salmon Capital Seafood Taste delights the taste buds at Spirit Square

Internationally renowned chefs offer up culinary extravaganza Sunday

Some internationally recognized and renowned chefs took over Spirit Square Sunday for the Salmon Capital Seafood Taste to benefit the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.

As part of the 2017 BC Shellfish &Seafood Festival hosted in Courtenay, several chefs made their way up for the event, including Culinary Team Canada champion Dave Ryan and North Island College’s newest member of the faculty of culinary arts, Xavier Bauby.

For a minimum $5 donation to the Hospital Foundation, members of the public were provided a plate and a fork and invited to try everything on offer, from the Indian flavours and textures of chef Siddharth Choudhary to the Tahitian-inspired samples from Bauby, and everything in between.

Courtenay’s Luke Blu Guthrie also made the short trip up the highway and kept everyone entertained with his originals and bluesy, reimagined versions of old classics from the Spirit Square stage as they made their way around the event.
