Traveling to Vancouver and want to enjoy a fine meal, in an informal, yet intimate setting, personally served to you by one of Vancouver's finest chefs? Then sign up for one of Edible British Columbia's many great events...including Cooking with BC's Best which I attended last night.
Vikram Vij, one of Vancouver's finest chefs, most gracious hosts, owner of Vij's and Rangoli, and generally enteraining guy, taught us some Indian cooking basics and took the intimidation right out of the preparation. Five delicious courses later (including three different curries), including each of the 20 guests attempting to make their own Naan bread, and accompanied by Eric Pateman of Edible BC's carefully chosen beer and wine accompaniments for each course (including two delicious, hard to get Orofino whites), we were fat and happy and ready to take advantage of Eric's kind gift of discounts on the delectable BC-only products sold in the Edible BC store.
The Edible BC store is in the heart of the Granville Island market and features an assortment of BC artisan-made culinary delights from sea salt, to jam, to marinated cherries, to hazelnut oil, to adventurous organic chocolate bars and everything in between. These make great gifts to take home to your family and friends who will be jealous of your trip to this foodies destination.
