This Thursday, April 30, celebrate Canadian cuisine at Eat! Vancouver’s Canadian Flavours Gala. Fourteen wineries from the Okanagan’s Naramata Bench will pour their best, while talented chefs cook for the gathered.
Some of the talent assembled: Connie DeSousa of Calgary’s red-hot Charcut; Andrew Winfield of Calgary’s River Café; Nicholas Nutting of Tofino’s Wolf in the Fog; Jérémie Bastien of Montreal’s Leméac. From Toronto hails Jesse Grasso of The Black Hoof, Carl Heinrich of Richmond Station, and Nick Liu of newly opened DaiLo. Executive chef Ryan O’Flynn from the Westin Edmonton will recreate his winning dish from the 2015 Canadian Gold Medal Plates chef competition, while local participants include executive chef Ned Bell from The Four Seasons’ Yew Restaurant + Bar, Eric Pateman of Edible Canada, and Bella Gelateria’s hand-made gelato, named the best in the world at the international gelato competition held in Florence, Italy.
This is a rare opportunity to experience so many great chefs from across Canada doing their thing—a kind of culinary master class all in one evening. There will also be an exclusive silent wine auction benefitting Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise sustainable seafood program.
Eat! Vancouver’s Canadian Flavours Gala will take place Thursday, April 30. Tickets to the event are available here.
