Terminal City Club
April 22, 2012

Combine the excitement of Iron Chef with a brunch-loving philanthropic crowd, and you get Food Fight! The Battle for Brunch. Presented by Variety The Children’s Charity and MarketPlace IGA, this fundraising event brought together B.C. chefs to compete for the title of Food Fight champ. This year’s competitors were EBO Restaurant, Edible Canada at the Market, Save On Meats, Terminal City Club, The Abercorn Inn Hotel & Restaurant, Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort and Yew Restaurant + Bar. 

Guests mingled and nibbled on mouth-watering creations – like the quail egg and corned beef eggs benny, and the warm preserved lemon scones – then cast their vote for their favourite Food Fighter. This year’s runner up was the Terminal City Club, and for the second year in a row, Yew Restaurant took home the top title. Emceed by Vancouver personality Fred Lee, the event also featured silent and live auctions, featuring high-ticket items like an autographed Trevor Linden jersey and a WestJet package. This annual event was a finalist for the 2011 Vancouver Board of Trade Spirit of Vancouver Awards.
