About Passions
The history of Passions traces back to 2002, to a small charity cooking class at Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks. A year later in 2003, the event was moved to the Dr. Peter Centre and christened "Passions." Organized by Vancouver Food Media Personality, Nathan Fong, the inaugural event featured nine chefs, 100 attendees and raised $7000. Under Nathan's continued stewardship, Passions has since tripled in size and has become one of Vancouver's most popular food and wine events. The 2011 event featured 24 chefs, 300 attendees, and raised over $100,000. In total, Passions has raised $800,000 since 2003.
