The Comox Valley's fourth Flavour Festival took place Sunday September 18, 2016 at Coastal Black Estate Winery. 

Our finest chefs, vintners, farmers and producers showcased their talents in support of education and the culinary culture in our community.

Flavour was created by the NIC Foundation team for the purpose of highlighting the region's epicurean bounty in support of students and educational programs at North Island College.

In appreciaton of their assistance, partial proceeds from the event will be distributed to the North Vancouver Island Chefs Association (NVICA).

The North Vancouver Island Branch of the Canadian Culinary Federation is a non-profit association which represents chefs and cooks from Bowser to the northern tip of Vancouver island.  We received official society status as the The Canadian Culinary Federation (CCFCC) North Vancouver Island Chefs Association in 2006. Our goals are to promote culinary excellence, aid the growth and development of our industry, and provide a network for our membership.

We are increasingly taking an educational role in promoting healthy lifestyles, conscientious food purchasing and global awareness in all that we do.  Working with local high schools and colleges, we strive to assist aspiring individuals in developing the skills which are in demand today in our industry. For deserving members we offer financial assistance for education.
