Hooray! BC Spot Prawn season officially begins on May 7th. The citywide festival initiated by the Chefs Table Society of Vancouver will inspire numerous seafood-themed menus about town as local chefs get with the prawn. Greet the fishermen bringing in the first catch on Saturday, May 9th, 2009 from noon to 3 p.m. @ False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf. Meet some of Vancouver’s top chefs as they prepare spot prawn recipes and conduct cooking demonstrations at Granville Island at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p. m. on May 9th, 10th and 16th. The season runs for 8 weeks, with the boats arriving after 1 p.m. daily. For more information or to order local spot prawns, please contact: Steve Johansen, Organic Ocean. 778-231-9453
