Healthy food, fun food and famous food highlight this past week’s events, which, most definitely, were gastronomic delights every step of the way.

First, the B.C. Restaurant Hall of Fame’s annual gala dinner dished out honours to local restaurateurs and more at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Front of House, Friend of the Industry and a Lifetime Achievement award to the late James Barber were all part of the ceremonies.

Next, congratulations are in order for the gang at the Ocean Club restaurant and lounge in West Vancouver where a sexy second- anniversary party saw VIPs play till the wee hours.

Former Olympians Dr. Doug and Diane Clement entertained family and invited guests at the Shaw Tower for the launch of their new healthy lifestyle cookbook.

But the week ended on a high note thanks to one of this city’s most distinguished gentlemen — Bill Hatwell of Craftsman Collision fame — who, thanks to his very generous, private, donation to the Grammy and Juno award-winning Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, helped support the arts and the recent Mambo Kings concert at the Orpheum Theatre.
