The British Columbia Study Tour is an experiential learning experience for International and Domestic students from the George Brown College Chefs School at the Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts. The tour will provide an opportunity for students to develop fundamental knowledge of sustainable menu development and food and wine pairing while experiencing the regional ingredients and the cuisine of Canada and British Columbia. Each student will be deep sea fishing with eighth-generation fishers to learn the changes in the fishing industry. The students will forage, harvest ingredients, and prepare an “Earth to Table” menu. During the study tour they will hone their craft and network with influential chefs, farmers, fishers, and foragers of British Columbia to better understand the importance and challenges of regional cuisine from experts in their respective fields.
To raise funds for the study tour, Culinary Professors and student participants will prepare a six-course meal at The Chefs’ House.
Reception: 5:30 pm
Dinner Service: 6:00 pm
We thank our industry sponsors for making this study tour possible. Without their support and generosity, we would not be able to present this tour and other unique opportunities to our students.
