ICC Christmas Shaker 2016

The city's best chefs and bartenders gear up to toast the town

The Island Chefs Collaborative (ICC) and 17 Black Events present the fourth annual ICC Christmas Shaker, a night spent celebrating the city’s most talented bartenders and chefs.

The event will be held in the Pier A building at Ogden Point on Dec. 4 from 7 p.m to 11 p.m. The fundraising event will showcase Victoria’s award winning cocktail scene and the culinary talent of the ICC chefs.

Bartenders and mixologists will craft an exciting variety of both classic and innovative drinks to test your palate.

Delicious canapés prepared with local ingredients will be served to pair with the innovated cocktails and live entertainment.

You are getting the best of the best bartenders and mixology minds, and the best food our region has to offer,” said Scott Gurney, event producer with 17 Black Events.

The ICCa community of chefs and food and beverage professionals with an interest in food security, preservation of farmland and the development of local food systems uses the ICC Christmas Shaker as one of the year’s top fundraising efforts.

Proceeds from the event will go toward two of the collaborative’s initiatives, The Microloan and The Growing Chefs programs.

The ICC and FarmFolk CityFolk (FFCF) partnered with Vancity to offer a zero interest Microloan Fund to help growers, harvesters and processors invest in equipment and materials that allows them to increase the supply of food in the region.

The ICC’s Growing Chefs program helps to educate children, families, and community members about healthy eating and healthy food systems.

It’s a win-win for the guests, good food and good drink. It’s a great way to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season,” he said.

Each ticket include all food offerings, two drink tickets, and live entertainment.

Additional drinks can be purchased for $3.00 each – all sales on event night are cash only. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available at no additional charge.

Tickets are $50 +GST and can be purchased online at iccshaker.com, by phone at 250-220-7777, or in person at 1925 Blanshard Street.
