Vancouver Community College Judges Street Food Taste Test

Vancouver Community College Vancouver Community College recently hosted the judging of 25 new street vendors.

They sampled the work of a shortlisted group of vendors who are vying to be part of The City of Vancouver’s Street Food Program for 2012.

The 25 finalists gathered at the downtown Vancouver campus and prepared dishes for sampling by a panel of local chefs, nutritionists, food media and members of the public.

The finalists have been short listed from a pool of 59 applicants. Their work was evaluated based on the judges’ preferences in relation to the other food entries and the existing street food available in Vancouver.

The scoring from the taste test will be added to the total scores previously submitted by the selection panel. The winners and the new food carts will be announced this spring by the City of Vancouver.

Vancouver Community College strives to provide the best culinary training with their hospitality program and their culinary arts program. They offer on-campus training facilities that serve the public and the college community including the bakery, cafeteria and two full-service restaurants.

They have trained many of the region’s top chefs and their team flew to Ottawa in June 2011 to cook a Canadian-inspired feast during William and Kate’s first royal tour of Canada.
