A few days ago I took part in a very different Dine Out Vancouver dinner experience. Pizza making paired with some local craft brews!
It was a three course prix fixe meal for $25 at Rocky Mountain Flatbread on Main Street that was paired with brews from Stanley Park Brewery. For starters, we could choose an organic salad or the Chef’s soup, my friend Ryan West and I both had the delicious BC Mushroom & Apple Soup paired with the Stanley Park Noble Pilsner!
Then for our 2nd course it was time to create our own artisan pizza with five of our favourite toppings. This was a fun experience, we both rolled out our own dough, flattening and rolling again; then we chose our toppings and finished off the pizza, off to the ovens they went and minutes later were served to us to enjoy.
My pizza topped with chicken, mango, sundried tomato, mushroom & red peppers! The brew of choice for the pairing was the Stanley Park 1897 Amber.
Lastly we finished off with a delicious warm Double Chocolate Brownie and vanilla ice cream for dessert, this was paired with the Stanley Park Brun.
