Mystery wine pairing

Madison Erhardt

Ever struggled to pair the right wine and food? 

The chefs at the Canadian Culinary Championships believe they have it down. 

At the Delta Grand hotel, top chefs from across Canada were given a mystery bottle of white wine Friday night and challenged to create a dish with local ingredients that best complemented it. 

The chefs had $500 to purchase their ingredients. 

Guests sampled their creations during the competition, which continues Saturday with a black box cook-off at the Okanagan College kitchens.

"My favourite saying as a chef is I can't change what's in the bottle, but I can change what's on the plate. Now it's up to the chefs to do their thing," said organizer Chef Bernard. 

Attendees had the opportunity to play judge Friday night, as they voted for the best wine and food pairing. 

A silent auction of rare wines and other experiences was also featured as guests sipped wine and tasted decadent food.
