This past Saturday at the London Convention Center, put on a great culinary charity  event like London has never seen, for Bethany's Hope Foundation.  http://www.bethanyshope.org/7chefs/7Chefs.html. I had the opportunity to deliver Chefs Hats  for the function ,courtesy of Claude Buzon owner of   http://www.chefs-hat.com/ and  got a chance to take a few photos also of the Chefs and Fanshawe Culinary students prepping for the function.
The images where shot in Raw format and re-sized in Photoshop with no other editing. I will edit as time permits.Hope you enjoy
Great to meet all the Chefs 
In 1993, Claude, a chef of nearly 30 years embarked on the challenge of creating the perfect chef's hat. It would need to be strong, yet breathable; accommodate every head size; and because of the daily wear in tough conditions, must retail at a reasonable cost. He came up with the ultimate design - "La Toque Demagny". It was comfortable, durable, and provided flexible sizing, at the cost of pennies a day. This unique creation has stood the test of time and continues to stand above the crowd in performance and functionality.
It was only natural that Chef's Hat evolve to outfit the chef from head to toe. In 2000, the company began producing chef jackets, aprons, pants and neckties, adhering to their strict standards of top quality and craftsmanship. Designed by a chef for the chef, the Chef's Hat line of products boasts a strong belief in the profession and an emphasis on quality.

Here it is Chef's Hat new off the assembly line COOL (SIDE MESH FOR COOLNESS) Chef jacket . Canadian material made in Canada .
Can't wait to get a few for myself. It also comes in White with Black mesh or Black with White mesh .Get yours soon  they'r flying off the shelf.

Here are a few more photos from Saturdays Edmonton High School Culinary Challenge
Its happened again the Edmonton Culinary High School challenge at NAIT this past Saturday consisted of 13 High Schools with teams of 3 students from Edmonton and surroundings. Here are a bunch of photos  from this very successful event. Great to see a lot of the Chefs from Edmonton and even Calgary and Red Deer participating as judges . Great job by Chef Simon Smotkowicz and  Chef Stanley Townsend from NAIT.




HDR stands for High Dynamic Range imaging and being a chef I can only compare it to Molecular cooking . For the most past you need to capture the same photo on three different exposures , one being correct ,one being under and the other being over exposed and the rest is simple ,bring them together on an HDR program such as Photomatix, and voila , all the tones are there ,the highs the lows and everything else , no more over exposed or under exposed photos , just a little work on your PC..........its a learning process at this point .
Here are some samples
Oh and by the way check this out
Being Jessica's birthday we decided to make her a chocolate cake instead of the more traditional Sweet potato and pecan pie
This was a traditional sort of Devils Food cake with chocolate mousse and finished with  hazel flavoured ganache . Needles to say it was yummy
Here are some of the photos 
Happy Birthday Jessica
