With many years of having dined at Bishop's, this was a great evening in paying tribute to a very unique and talented chef. John Bishop has created numerous dishes, many that have become a favourite of mine. If you haven't yet dined at Bishop's, you must.
Hosted by Les Dames d'Escoffier of British Columbia, 100 guests were seated in a long hall and not only sat with John Bishop himself, but enjoyed a set dinner, with each dish created as an homage to the chef himself. Several chefs worked together to create a lovely menu. They had been taught by or had worked with John Bishop throughout his career. Les Dames did a marvellous job of organizing the event. Canadian chefs: Rob Feenie, Umberto Menghi, Vikram Vij, Michel Jacob and Michael Smith, were just a few of many chefs who attended the dinner.
I was very honoured to be a part of the evening. I would like to thank, The Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver, for allowing me to cover this momentous occasion.
