On October 21st I attended a wonderful fundraiser that benefited Growing Chefs, it was From Farms to Forks 3. It was a Kitchen Party like none other, this was a culinary adventure held at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts, 15 chefs prepared a variety of dishes that were served in a multitude of kitchens throughout the culinary school.
Some of the city’s most prominent chefs and mixologists and the region’s best growers and producers put together a fun night of canapés, B.C. wine and beer pairings, cocktails, and tasting stations! Emceed by Margaret Gallagher and Fred Lee who kept us all entertained through-out the evening.
The participating restaurants included: The Acorn, Burdock and Co., C Restaurant, Cocolico, Fat Dragon BBQ , Culinary Capers Catering, Kale and Nori Culinary Arts, King Pacific Lodge, La Quercia , Les Faux Bourgeois , Minami Restaurant, Oyster Express, Pair Bistro, Provence Restaurants, Tableau Bar Bistro, The Pear Tree Restaurant, West, YEW Restaurant.
There were delicious desserts along with a selection of cheeses and a sweet box of chocolates from Beta5 for everyone to take home.
