Shachar Stern wrote in an e-mail, “Our goal for the 5-10 BC Healthy Chef event was to create the best tasting food with the highest nutritional value. We believe that food should not only look and taste great but also be healthy. By creating this menu we would like to introduce you with simple ingredients and their health benefits”.
He added, “Each one of the ingredients was chosen not only for its flavour, but for the unique health benefits. I believe that we managed to deliver that. Thankfully the judges thought the same and awarded us the HEALTHY PLATE AWARD.”
