Prevent Cancer Now is bringing the popular Kiss-Off Cancer Cook-Off to Nelson on Sunday, June 1.

The Cook-Off and silent auction, sponsored by Century 21 Mountainview Realty and the Kootenay Co-op, will take place at the Hume Hotel.

The event will see celebrity chefs competing against each other to create scrumptious dishes with foods that prevent cancer.

Chefs from All Seasons Café, Re-lish Bistro, Ric’s Grill and the Hume Hotel will go head-to-head.

A panel of judges will rate the dishes for use of anti-cancer ingredients, taste and appearance.

A Consumer’s Choice prize will also be presented, voted on by guests attending the event.

Community cooks can show off their culinary talents by entering their favourite healthy dishes, peer-judged by other cooks and guests at the cook-off.

Everyone is invited to come enjoy the food and buy wonderful gifts at the silent auction, all donated by local businesses.

Prevent Cancer Now (PCN) began organizing the Kiss-Off Cancer Cook-Off in Rossland in 2011 as part of its ongoing efforts to let people know that over half, and up to 90 per cent of cancers, are preventable.

According to PCN volunteer co-chair, Diana Daghofer, “There are so many things people can do to protect themselves and loved ones from cancer. Diet is an important one, and the cook-off gets people involved in a hands-on way that’s a lot of fun.”

Tickets are available at Streetclothes Named Desire on Baker Street in Nelson. Details are available at the Prevent Cancer Now website at
