Events Description


The Chefs’ Table Society of BC (CTS) and the BC Salmon Marketing Council (BCSMC) are coming together from Friday, August 21 to Sunday, August 23rd for a celebration of the iconic BC product: wild salmon. Typically, a one-day Vancouver based event, this year due to COVID-19 restrictions there is a new format for the celebration with 10 participating chefs and restaurants in communities around the province.

Typically, the 200 in-person event takes place on one night in Vancouver but with COVID-19 event restrictions the new format enables a multi-city celebration in support of sustainable fishing, local commercial fisher-people and a healthy, sustainable seafood choice. The dishes, appetizer or entree, will only be available for the three-day long celebration with pricing set individually by each restaurant and have each individual chef adding their personal flair to their creations with wild salmon as the star.

Taste buds will tingle and hearts will soar as along with celebrating wild salmon, guests will be supporting local restaurants by ordering in or taking out specific Wild Salmon Celebration menu items.
