The GOODS from Araxi

Whistler, BC | Summer is nearly upon us – and at Araxi, it represents the start of an exciting season featuring our annual Longtable Dining Series. This year, the series will be set in Whistler’s picturesque Rainbow Park, which boasts stunning views of Whistler, Blackcomb, and Alta Lake – serving as the ultimate al fresco backdrop for this highly anticipated dining series.

Araxi’s acclaimed Executive Chef, James Walt, prides himself and his menus on local provenance, and has built strong relationships with Pemberton Valley’s farming and ranching community. As part of this year’s Longtable Series, an exclusive Farmers’ Market will be on site, allowing guests to taste Chef James’ favourite ingredients in their raw form. Participating producers will include, amongst others, Root Down Organics and Pemberton Meadows Natural Beef. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception, featuring wine tastings and a dedicated vodka station by Pemberton Distillery.

Chef James and his expert team from Araxi will craft an exclusive four-course tasting menu, aiming to deliver a truly memorable and unique farm-to-table experience. Chef James says, “We are extremely excited about this summer’s Longtable Series at Rainbow Park, and especially to introduce our valued producers. I believe the Farmers’ Market will give guests a unique opportunity to engage with some of our very best suppliers in an intimate and relaxed setting.” Details after the jump…

Samantha Rahn, Araxi’s Wine Director, has carefully selected complementary wine pairings for each course, ensuring that each dining experience best represents the flavours of the surrounding region.
