The annual Spot Prawn Festival will provide another local, fresh, and sustainable ingredient for our restaurant chefs and home cooks to enjoy. Those who take pride in serving the bounty of British Columbia can use this annual six-to-eight week window of opportunity to purchase live, locally sourced and sustainable spot prawns directly from our local fishermen at False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf and at participating restaurants serving local spot prawns. At $12 per pound for the public ($10 for Chefs’ Table members), they are an excellent and affordable alternative to the farmed tiger prawns.
This year the Spot Prawn Festival is proud to feature wine samples from Ganton & Larsen Prospect Winery, a kids play area from the Vancouver Aquarium Ocean Wise Program, a special guest speaker from the David Suzuki Foundation, and entertainment from local blues-rock band Terminal Station. As the Chefs’ Table Society is continuing to spread awareness for it’s latest cookbook Vancouver Cooks 2, festival goers can purchase books at the festival and have them signed by their favourite Vancouver chefs.
