Canadian students rival 'Iron Chef' with Niagara-on-the-Lake feast

Top confectionary arts students from across Canada will try to outdo each other this weekend at Decadence, a pastry competition featuring chocolate and icewine.

Held in the Canadian Wine and Food Institute at Niagara College, the three-day affair features a gala dinner with an ambitious menu, seven dishes and dessert, that rivals any "Iron Chef" show in complexity.

It's $75 a person (no one under 19), and starts at 6 p.m. at 135 Taylor Road, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario L0S 1J0. Tickets available by calling 905-641-2252 ext. 4619, or emailing decadence@niagaracollege.ca .
