Event Description 

Join UBC Botanical Garden in celebrating the International Year of Soil and learn, first hand, about how soil and climate influence the flavour and quality of your food. To celebrate the terroir of our region, Chefs Alvin Pillay and Sarah Stewart of Vancouver’s most iconic Canadian restaurant, Edible Canada, will be preparing a gourmet family-style feast featuring only the freshest locally-grown ingredients. Dinner guests are invited to sit back, relax and indulge in an outdoor evening of wine, music and decadence in one of Vancouver’s most beautiful hidden gems.

Chefs Pillay and Stewart have specially designed this delicious family-style menu inspired by plants grown in UBC Botanical Garden’s demonstration Food Garden. Highlighting edibles in-season, the menu will feature summer squash, black kale, white bean succotash, whole roasted beef striploin, cedar plank salmon, wild rice, field hens and more! Without giving too much away, diners can look forward to pickled roots, harvest dips, organic breads, honeyed goat cheese, heirloom carrots, summer radishes, sprouts, seeds, stone fruit and summer berry butter crust pies served with lavender whip cream.

Come and enjoy an exceptional evening surrounded by the lush landscape of the botanical garden. Live entertainment will be provided by gypsy jazz band Casa Rosa.
