Shelley Robinson - Top chef Canada

Celebrity chef and culinary instructor Shelley Robinson, from Vancouver Community College, will give attendees a taste of competitive cooking at this year’s Delta Trades and Technical Career Fair on 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. It’s a fun way to introduce young people to VCC’s culinary arts program and the fast-paced career as a chef.

Robinson, who trained at both Dubrulle Culinary Institute and Vancouver Community College, says, "I'm very grateful for my formal culinary education, which included attending VCC, 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 great career options in the trades and technical areas. It will feature over 75 interactive exhibits, presentations and demonstrations on the show stage. Visit
