It was an extra delicious day this past Saturday at Park and Tilford’s Save-on-Foods store as the first ever Top Chef North Shore event took place. Billed as a friendly culinary competition and fundraiser, store shoppers got a chance to sample each of the amazing offerings from all six participating restaurants. In the end it was the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation who came out the biggest winners as all donations raised goes to support their efforts. Congratulation to all involved!
