Celebrate Earth Hour March 20-28

In commemoration of Earth Hour™, Raincity Grill, C Restaurant and nu restaurant + lounge will shut off more than just the lights on Saturday, March 27th. The chefs at all three restaurants will be promoting raw food menus in order to take the event, one of the world’s biggest climate change initiatives, an environmental step further.

The menus created will consume far less energy than normal restaurant fare based on the cooking techniques. C’s Chef de Cuisine Quang Dang defines raw food as, “A diet based on unprocessed and uncooked plant foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, nuts, grains, beans and for us seafood.  By not heating food above 47 degrees Celsius the enzymes can better assist in digestion and absorption. Most cooking techniques diminish the nutritional value and of food as well as burn energy in the process.”

The Kambolis Group has pledged to run the menus from Saturday, March 20th through to Sunday, March 28th 2010 in order to promote climate change initiatives. Look forward to Items like C’s Keta Salmon Carpaccio – grapefruit, compressed cucumbers, tarragon paste and Portabello Mushroom Pave – Oyama Shinken Speck, Salt Spring Island Goat Cheese, Stoney paradise raisin vinaigrette, nu restaurant + lounge’s Beef Tartare – julienne of salad and gazpacho and Raincity Grill’s Hazelnut Mousse.
