The ‘Flavour of Chocolate Small Plates & Chef Competition’ is an evening of exquisite food, silent auction and entertainment in support of Soroptimist International of Victoria Westshore (SIVW). Funds raised go towards improving the lives of girls, women, and their children locally and globally.

Last year, seven talented chefs served up a diverse array of savoury, small plates each featuring chocolate in this annual culinary competition held at the Songhees Wellness Centre. Specially paired spirits accompanied the chefs’ creations and the lucky attendees voted for their favourite dish and libation. The grand finale—an incredible chocolate dessert.

We catch up with last year’s ‘Flavour of Chocolate’ competition winner, Toivo Heyduck, who won the first annual competition in 2015 as well!
