Celebrity chef and culinary instructor Shelley Robinson will give attendees a taste of competitive cooking at this year’s Delta Trades and Technical Career Fair in North Delta on Thursday (April 24).

The recent winner of Chopped Canada and current contestant on Top Chef Canada will referee a food fight between a few willing Delta students who will have to whip up a culinary feat on the main stage in a head-to-head competition.

Robinson, who trained at both Dubrulle Culinary Institute and Vancouver Community College, says, "I'm very grateful for my formal culinary education ... to have the career I do now. I can't stress the importance of having strong role models and chef mentors for young aspiring cooks.”

The second-annual career fair introduces Delta students, their parents and the community to post-secondary training and career options in the trades and technical areas. It will feature more than 75 interactive exhibits, presentations and demonstrations on the show stage.

The fair – which is open to the public – runs from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Sungod Recreation Centre, 7815 112 St. Robinson will be on the show stage at 7 p.m.
