KELOWNA’S KATE PITTMAN WINS CANADIAN JUNIOR CHEF OF THE YEAR
June 6, 2013, Kelowna, BC… For the second year in a row, the title of Canadian Junior Chef of the Year title has been awarded to an Okanagan-based chef. Kate Pittman, a 24-year old Demi Chef de Partie at Manteo Resort and the resort’s new restaurant, Smack DAB, received this year’s coveted title. The annual competition was hosted by the Canadian Culinary Federation in Edmonton, giving up-and-coming junior chefs the opportunity to earn their place as one of Canada’s top aspiring chefs.
“This competition has been a huge part of my life for the last three months and is actually the reason I decided to go to culinary school. To have had all the hard work pay off and be able to come out the other side a better cook and knowing more chefs around Canada than I ever thought possible is simply amazing,” said Kate Pittman, Demi Chef de Partie, Manteo Resort.No comments
