2012 Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards highlight the best of Revelstoke

Food service excellence is right! Sonia Ratte and Olivier Dutil of La Baguette won the 2012 Food Service Excellence Award at the Nov. 3 Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards.

Everyone in attendance concurred – La Baguette was catering that evening and they put on a fantastic dinner that earned them a standing ovation and lots of raves around the room.

The Triple-A beef rib-eye in a red wine demi-glaze was amazing, the pork tenderloin in a white wine mushroom sauce was fantastic and the black tiger prawns in a garlic and shallot emulsion caused people at my table to lose their cool and hoard them.

The Business Excellence Awards highlighted the best of business in Revelstoke 2012.

It featured newly-revised award categories designed to fit a bit better with the unique mix of businesses in Revelstoke, explained host and Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Judy Goodman. The awards included new tourism and youth employment categories.
