The Canadian Culinary Federation’s North Vancouver Island branch in recognition of the World Association of Chefs Societies held a meet and greet at various eating establishments on Oct. 20.

Members of North Vancouver Island Chefs Association dropped into restaurants and residential institutions to help introduce the public to the people who prepare their food, in other words the people behind the swinging doors.

The WAC had a dream which became a reality on Oct. 20, 2004 at the inaugural celebration of the profession by chefs and cooks all over the world.

The main objective of establishing this day was to create widespread awareness for the cooking profession, and for the profession to give back to society what it could through charitable events, culinary competitions and demonstrations.
