Welcome to the Copper Chef Charity Cook-Off

Originally hosted by Shawnigan Shores B&B Retreat, this event has become a favourite with local chefs and the lucky judges that have the honour of tasting their fabulous creations. This is a great way to entertain guests and raise money for worthwhile causes.

Based on the popular “Iron Chef” tv show, chefs are given certain ingredients that they are to use in each of the three courses.

  • Appetizer
  • Entrée
  • Dessert

The Chefs also choose a charity that the proceeds will be donated to after the event. The Judges score each dish and the points are tallied at the conclusion of the meal.

In the past, the Kitchen at Shawnigan Shores B&B Retreat was perfectly suited for this wonderful evening and all participating had a terrific time.  Ask the owner of your favorite restaurant to help sponsor your event.


Here’s what some of the past participants have to say –

“What a fabulous night! The food, the wine and the wonderful company all made for an incredible evening. To start off, there was an olive oil tasting and I had no idea that there were so many different flavours. All this food and fun and championed for a charity – What a great idea!



I hope that I can have the tough job of judging again in the future.” Laila P. – Cobble Hill, BC
