Are we doing enough to tackle the culinary industry’s impact on the environment?

That’s the question a group of chefs in Victoria have a response to, and they’re looking for a way to pay it forward.

On Monday, October 28th EAT Magazine and Boom + Batten Restaurant/Café are co-hosting Eat The Future, a unique event to celebrate just how committed they are to making a difference and changing the future in the culinary world.

Though the event itself is sold out, there’s still a way for everyone and anyone to participate! Boom + Batten and EAT Magazine are co-hosting an online auction, with some truly unique west coast prizes available to bid on.

On top of incredible packages such as a three night stay at the Pacific Sands Resort in their Oceanside Suite paired with a $100 gift certificate at the Wolf in the Fog donated by Hoyne Brewing, there will also be biddable items such as travel excursions, art, unique experiences, luxury perks and of course – fabulous dining adventures!

Also up for bid will be a unique series of eight original paintings of working chefs titled: Tattoo Series 1, donated by Mary Ploegsma, a respected artist who splits her time between Victoria and Houston.

Money raised at this event and through the auction will be shared equally between the BC Hospitality Foundation and the Gary Hynes Foundation – specifically for students heading into their final year of a culinary program.
