This past week, Ethan and Melissa had the opportunity to attend the Vancouver kick off for KitchenAid Canada's Cook for the Cure Culinary Showdown for the CBCF along with some other local FBC members  It was a fun evening with a mini-culinary showdown that involved fundraisers and whipping cream (we'll leave the rest to your imagination!) along with some emotional speeches from a breast cancer survivor, Chef Vikram Vij (one of the Culinary Showdown Chefs) and more.

We've both set up our fundraising profiles along with a few other members and we encourage you to join in if you're able.  FBC is very proud to be a sponsor of this event and we'll have some exciting new information coming your way this week on how you can get involved! (Think Raspberry Ice!)

It’s great to see Redawna’s photo at the top of the news! I fell in love in this picture when I saw it on FB last week. Glad to see it’s getting this exposure!
