It was our pleasure to interview Chef Lesley Stav of the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort, and President of the North Vancouver Island Chefs Association. Lesley took to the kitchen as a second career after an injury prevented her from continuing on with her previous profession. Along the way she has worked at a variety of restaurants and chefs, volunteering and working hard to promote her industry. She is now fully immersed in the NVICA and all the great initiatives that the association has including bursaries for apprentices, a cookbook, chef exchange and Growing Chefs, which is a new thing that connects chefs with elementary school children and teaches them where there food comes from and what to do with it. Thanks Lesley for visiting with us and for all your hard work with the NVICA.

September 23rd- Flavour the North Vancouver Island Gourmet Picnic.  SOLD OUT. If you did not get a ticket for this years event, keep your eyes peeled for it again in 2013. I do believe the organizers are still looking for volunteers so this may be a way in. Contact them through the site. Visit the beautiful grounds of Coastal Black Winery and sample products from dozens of chefs and farmers from around the Comox Valley. Once again, Jon will be wearing many hats at this event. Blayne will be walking around and eating, what he does best! Island Soda Works will also be dishing out samples at this wonderful event.

The Comox Valley $100 dollar challenge. Join our initiative and help to keep dollars in the local economy.

Of course the Comox Valley Farmers Market twice weekly Saturday 9-12 at the Fair Grounds on Headquarters and Wednesday from 9-12 at the Comox Bay Farm.
