Camosun instructor cooks for the Emperor and Empress of Japan
On July 12, 2009, the Canadian Institute of Ocean Sciences hosted a luncheon for their Majesties the Emperor and Empress of Japan. The Institute invited Chef de Cuisine Gilbert Noussitou to prepare the imperial menu. When he’s not serving royalty, Gilbert is the Program Chair of Camosun’s Culinary Arts program. Two of Camosun’s Professional Cook students gained an amazing experience when they were invited to accompany Gilbert and help out in the kitchen.
