On April 13, I attended one of the long table dinners for the first time at Longtail Kitchen in the River Market in New Westminster. This exceptional dinner was created by Chef Clement Chan and Steve Kwan of Le Tigre Cuisine Food Truck and their team who put together a delicious 4 course menu.

At two long tables guests enjoyed multiple courses with multiple dishes some of which were served family style.

The 1st course:
