Good luck, Lukas!

We are thrilled to announce that our Sous Chef, Lukas Gurtner, has been selected as a Western Canada finalist and will be competing in the 2014 Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship Competition.

Lukas began working with the Sonora culinary team in 2011. After completing his first season at Sonora he went to Montreal, Quebec where he expanded his culinary repertoire while working at Laurie Raphaël. We are delighted to have him back for the 2014 season. 

In the Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship Competition, the national finalists will have two and a half hours to cook a main and dessert course using a surprise selection of ingredients. The ultimate prize is $10,000, provided by the Chefs’ Table Society of BC, and a stage at a leading international restaurant. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Lukas for his hard work and dedication. 

Congratulations and we wish you the best of luck!

The Western Canada competition will take place in Calgary on June 22nd. For more information about the Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship competition, and to follow Lukas as he competes, visit
