May Nanaimo’s best borscht win

NANAIMO - Ukrainian Catholic Church of St. Michael the Archangel hosts Second annual BorschFest event.

Local restaurant owners are bringing their competitive instincts to the table for Nanaimo’s second annual BorschFest event.

The event, akin to a chili cook-off but with Ukrainian beet soup, is a fundraiser for the Ukrainian Catholic Church of St. Michael the Archangel and happens in the church’s parish hall at 4017 Victoria Ave. Sunday (Jan. 29) noon to 3 p.m.

This year’s event has drawn recipes from several popular local restaurants, including Firehouse Grill, New York Style Pizza and Pasta, Sandwich House, 2 Chefs Affair – last year’s winner returning to defend the title – Modern Café and Coco Café, that the public will pass judgement on which eatery whipped up the most savoury soup.

To learn more, enter the competition or reserve tickets, please e-mail theomac@lycos.com or call 1-778-320-2982.
