Wine gets star treatment

More than 30 Canadian wineries will be front and centre at this year's Canadian Culinary Championships.

The championship is set for Friday and Saturday, with events taking place at both the Delta Grand Hotel and Okanagan College.

“We are pleased to see such a great representation of Canadian Wines at this years event,” said David Lawrason, national wine advisory for the event.

“Of our 11 competing chefs, nine of them will also present a dish during the grand finale competition that is paired with a Canadian wine, which contributed to their success in winning in their home cities to compete at the championships in Kelowna.”

One chef is paired with a Canadian beer out of Newfoundland and one with a Canadian-made sake out of Ontario.

Wine will also be at the forefront during the first of three events, the Mystery Wine Pairing, slated for Friday evening at the Grand.

Each chef will be presented a bottle of the mystery wine during the opening reception Thursday evening, and will be tasked with creating a dish that pairs with the wine.

In addition to the featured wineries, the inaugural Gold Medal Pints will be awarded Friday evening.

Five finalists in the beer competition have been selected from 47 beverages from across the country. The winner will be selected during Friday's first event.
