As Vines’ principal sommelier I have been invited by the prestigious World Association of Chef Societies to their Bi-Annual Congress, which will be held in Daejeon, South Korea from May 01-May 06, 2012.
My main role at the conference will be assisting the young chefs’ delegates as well as seasoned chefs to further comprehend the joys and challenges of pairing wine with food.
And as the only Canadian sommelier invited, I have the honour of participating as a judge in the Global Chef Challenge Finals. The challenge is the result of two years of competitions with more than 600 local selections, 42 national championships and 7 continental finals. It has come down to 7 chefs to dispute the biannual Global Chef Challenge Title.
Look for daily blogs during my stay.
Wish me luck!!
