Madrona Farm Chef Survival Challenge 2014
Madrona Farm Chef Survival Challenge 2014

On September 7th, 2014, an energetic group of local Chefs and Firefighters gathered to donate their time and efforts to the 7th annual Chef Survival Challenge hosted at Madrona Farm in Victoria, B.C.  The family-focussed event is a benefit for raising awareness and funds for preserving local farmland through ‘The Big Dream Farm Society’. This years event will be held on September 27, 2015. To find out more, visit:

It was ‘Good For You Gourmet’ Chef Laura Moore’s second time participating, and this year her menu was paleo-focussed: farm fresh tomatoes were simmered into a sauce with garlic and caramelized onions ointo which organic cannellini beans were added then served up beside a BBQ’d bacon-wrapped Elk medallion, topped with a poached egg.

As the end of my maternity leave grew closer, I worried how my family would cope with my going back to work. I was plagued by \'what\'s for dinner?\' anxiety, and wondered how I would be able to spend quality time with my son while trying to cook dinner every day. Chef Laura\'s services were exactly what we needed to ease this transition. A well-stocked freezer of lovingly prepared, delicious and nutritious food put my mind at ease that at the end of the day my family would always be well fed.”

As a busy individual with a lot on the go, I appreciated how quickly Chef Laura was able to accommodate my cooking request - within a week of contacting her I had a fridge and freezer full of ready-to-eat food. Laura worked to develop a menu plan that addressed both my vegan dietary choice and individual food preferences. While all the dishes were delicious, the kichadi is beyond amazing, and I will be requesting it again! Laura provided a fantastic timely service that delivered excellent vegan food, great convenience and flexibility, and a tidy kitchen to boot.”

Chef Laura came to our home to prepare meals on a weekly basis, fresh groceries in hand. We had specific dietary requirements: primarily salt free, low fat, low sugar, high fiber and vegetarian. Laura met these criteria unfailingly, and yet was consistently able to produce extraordinary & exciting flavors in her many varied creations. Laura did all the shopping for her ingredients and clearly had exceptional knowledge about nutrition & wholesome quality products.”
