Cooking up a storm – Metro US

Cooking up a storm

Caren McSherry really knows how to cook up a storm — both in and out of the kitchen. The Gourmet Warehouse owner and renowned foodie/chef is no stranger to charity parties either. Last week she joined forces with media gal pal, and Global TV news anchor, Jill Krop for a pairing and sharing event called Lights Camera Cook! The Terminal City Club was teeming with top chefs who served creative canapes alongside a media personality all in support of the B.C. Firefighters’ Burn Fund. One lucky auction winner took home a dinner for friends created by the firefighters themselves — hot stuff!

Meanwhile, anniversary wishes go out to the gang at Doolin’s Pub and the Cellar on Granville Street for their five-year celebrations. The masquerade-themed party started early and continued well into the night as guests in kilts and camouflage left everything up to the imagination.
