The culinary vanguard is in force as chaos surrounds the judge’s table.

A fiery, internationally renowned sushi master with a celebrity clientele; a down-to-earth motorcycle enthusiast with a fondness for edible flowers; a heavily tattooed butcher with an appreciation for Zen philosophy; the former goalie of Canada’s national field hockey team and close friend of celebrated Olympic gold-medal winning snowboarder Ross Rebagliati. Only in Vancouver could one find such a motley crew of gastronomic daredevils. With the 2010 Vancouver Olympics right around the corner, there’s a palpable feeling of excitement in the air as the contenders battle for chef supremacy – but with late arrivals and logistical nightmares, the stage is set for a most decidedly ‘Left Coast’ evening.
