A big thank you to everyone who entered and to all our contest sponsors! Our winner Victor was entered by his wife Tracy. Read her touching letter here! 

Father's Day is this Sunday (June 17). We partnered with some of our favourite clients to put together a spectacular Father's Day prize designed for a dad who enjoys cooking, 2018FathersDayVictorCroppedTracy, Victor, and their son Sameating, being pampered and getting outdoors.

Wednesday morning, host Michael Wolch drew the name of the winner from all our entries and the lucky guy was . . . . Victor!

Here is his wife's touching entry.

I am grateful for the opportunity to enter my husband Victor in The Classic Culinary Father’s Day Contest. Vic is the most generous, patient and humble man I know. Vic is an incredible father, husband, friend and cook. His kindness, zest for life and selfless love for our son Sam is evident in everything that he creates in the kitchen.

Vic has always barbecued like a pro but five years ago Vic made it his mission to expand his culinary repertoire. Vic’s decision came as a result of Sam being diagnosed with life-threatening food allergies. Sam cannot safely eat at restaurants so Vic not only prepares Sam’s favourite dishes but also encourages Sam to be his sous-chef.

Vic involves Sam in preparing savoury dishes as well as in baking. Each year the two of them make a chocolate cake from scratch for my birthday. Vic’s influence has been so great that when Sam turned three he insisted on having a Chef themed birthday party. 

Vic’s generosity and culinary skills have also enriched the lives of our extended family members and friends. Vic has not only introduced them to new dishes but has also introduced them to great musical compositions. Vic believes that music and food are a perfect pairing. This has rubbed off on Sam who often requests “Morning” by Grieg during pancake breakfasts and Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto during dinner. 

Please consider Vic in The Classic Culinary Father’s Day Contest, as I would like to thank him for feeding our tummies, nourishing our souls and expanding our horizons.


Thank you,


Tracy Arias
