July 21, 2011 7:08 AM | Entertainment

Culinary Team Manitoba will have the backing of some of the province’s best chefs during a fundraiser on Saturday, July 23 in Selkirk.

Chefs will cook up delicious fare using the best local ingredients to prepare wood-fired pizza, BBQ chicken, sizzling pork, tasty salads and delicious desserts. The feast will be served up at Benjamin’s Gourmet Foods, 397 Eveline Street.

Six team members of Culinary Team Manitoba are gearing up to attend the World Culinary Olympics in Erfurt, Germany this October, the premier competition for chefs around the globe. The prestigious competition only takes place every four years and is the biggest and most traditional culinary exhibition of its kind.

“Competition is a vital part of keeping local chefs current with the world’s food trends as well as a way to showcase what both Manitoba and Canada have to offer both in product and chef talent,” said Mary Jane Feeke, pastry chef for Culinary Team Manitoba and owner of Benjamin’s.

The public is encouraged to purchase tickets to the meal in advance and make a reservation by calling (204) 482-4429 or e-mailing benjamins@mts.net. Two seatings will take place at 4:30 p.m. for families and 7 p.m. with a silent auction and local entertainment. Tickets are $40 per person or $5 for children 12 and under.
