Slow Fish Mystery Dinner - Vancouver
6-10pm September 27th, 2014

An event worth travelling for! 

"The Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia invites you to join the Slow Food / Slow Fish movement and eight mystery chefs on Saturday, September 27th at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts, just off Granville Island. Start your evening with canapés and libations, and then move though the school’s eight professional teaching kitchens to meet mystery chefs, visiting from BC and beyond, who will each offer a tasting-sized portion of sustainable and lesser-known local seafood delicacies for you to try.

Chefs’ Table Society member and Slow Fish member Chef Robert Clark has been evangelizing sustainability in seafood since 1998 and is spearheading this event along with Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts executive chef, and Chefs’ Table Society member Julian Bond. At its heart the event is intended to raise awareness for Slow Fish and its role in protecting our oceans. The Chefs’ Table Society has a mandate to support BC producers and sustainable food production, and is happy to present this event."
