Since 2009, the Chinese Restaurant Awards have been recognized by the international media and the dining public, as the authoritative dinning guide for Chinese restaurants in Metro Vancouver and Greater Toronto. In 2013, Vancouver saw the inauguration of Chinese Master Chefs. Eight coveted awards were presented to Chinese chefs who were recognized individually for their superb artistry and refined cooking techniques. For 2014, the Chinese Restaurant Awards have expanded internationally, invited recognized award-winning Chinese chefs to Vancouver, to present their own Chinese signature dishes. Our collective goal is to promote the expansion of business, trade and tourism between China and Canada, by showcasing the culinary excellence of local and international Chinese Master Chefs.


Chinese Master Chefs: Gold Medal Dinner
Chinese Master Chefs’ Gold Medal dinner was a culinary celebration of the 6th annual Chinese Restaurants Awards (CRA). This was an international collaboration of Chinese Master Chefs that are working together to create an exclusive “once in a lifetime” Chinese dinning experience for 320 guests. The award-winning Chefs are from Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Shanghai. The international Chinese Master Chefs were joined by four award-winning Canadian Chinese Master Chefs to orchestrate an unforgettable dinner.
