<p>"<location>Vancouver</location> is bringing the world together, so we are bringing some of the world's greatest chefs to <location>Vancouver</location>," said Sead Dizdarevic, chairman and CEO of Jet Set Sports.  "Five remarkable chefs will join us from Great Britain, <location>France</location>, <location>China</location>, <location>Germany</location> and <location>Switzerland</location>.  Each of them will put his or her stamp on the Chef's Table and provide our guests with an extraordinary meal to cap a fantastic day at the Games."</p>
<p/>
<p>The Chef's Table will be located at 1088 Burrard Street at the Sheraton <location>Vancouver</location> Wall Centre.  Participating chefs include:</p>

    --  Chef Andre Jaeger, owner and operator of the Rheinhotel Fischerzunft
in
        Schaffhausen, Switzerland, has masterfully created dishes for nearly
        four decades and has held 19/20 Gault Millau points since 1995.
    --  Chef Edouard Loubet, the acclaimed proprietor of La Bastide de
        Capelongue in Bonnieux, France, is one the youngest French chefs to
        earn two Michelin Stars.
    --  Chef Anton Mosimann, arguably the world's first celebrity chef, is now
        the proprietor of the legendary London dining club, Mosimann's.  His
        talents were polished in leading restaurants in Switzerland, Italy,
        Belgium, Sweden, Japan and Canada.
    --  Chef Heinz Winkler, owner and operator of the Residenz Henz Winkler in
        Bayern-Chiemgau, Germany, was awarded his first Michelin star in 1979,
        and at the age of 32, became one of the youngest three-star Michelin
        chefs in history.
    --  Chef Zhang Jin Jie (a.k.a. Jin-R), the incredibly talented owner and
        chef of the "classic-modern" Green T House in Beijing, takes
        inspiration from the changing seasons.  Her creations are works of art
        with each dish cleverly infused with Chinese teas, spices, flower
        petals and her signature garnish, Green Tea Powder.
