VCC Celebrates 50 Years
Vancouver Community College Foundation (VCCF) is hosting a special gala entitled 50 Years. 50 Chefs at the Rocky Mountaineer Station on November 17, 2015, to celebrate Vancouver Community College’s 50th anniversary.
The event brings together 50 chefs – all with a connection to VCC. The roster boasts successful alumni and dedicated chef instructors who have made their mark on the Vancouver food scene. VCC chefs can be found in virtually every restaurant in Vancouver and often represent Culinary Team Canada at international culinary competitions.
“This is a fitting celebration for the college’s anniversary – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for anyone who loves food. It really shows how the culinary program at VCC has grown to become one of the top schools in Canada,” says Bruno Marti, a Canadian culinary legend who will serve as 50 Years. 50 Chefs coach and mentor. Marti was the inaugural inductee into Canada’s Restaurant Hall of Fame, has received the Order of British Columbia, and is an Honorary VCC Outstanding Alumnus.
