A little about Fumiko Moreton!
After graduating from the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts at the top of her class, Fumiko began her culinary apprenticeship as a cook for the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel and Terminal City Club. She soon branched out into cake decorating and realized she had found her calling in the pastry arts. While obtaining her red seal, Fumiko won first place at several competitions for her desserts, including Calgary’s Lindt Chocolate Competition. Other major accomplishments include a silver medal for team Canada at the American Culinary Classic in Chicago in 2007, and gold and silver in 2008 and 2012 for Team BC at the IKA Culinary Olympics in Germany. A two year recipient of the Les Dame d’Escoffier Scholarship and a life-long learner, Fumiko has had the opportunity to work and learn from many award-winning Chefs such as Ewald Notter, Stephane Lerous & Jean-Pierre Wybauw. A new addition to the Culinary Team Canada, Fumiko plans to bring her best skills to the table at the World Cup Culinary competition and you can bet we will be cheering her on!
