The GOODS from Maenam

Vancouver, BC | On July 8th 2013, Chef Angus An invites you to join him for a one night re-creation of the successful James Beard dinner recently staged in New York. A limited number of guests will enjoy this 11-course custom menu accompanied by select wine pairings by sommelier Kurtis Kolt.

The James Beard Foundation extends coveted invitations to chefs that demonstrate a wealth of culinary expertise, innovation and talent. In April 2013, Chef An was selected by the foundation for his world class Thai cuisine, which he prepares at Vancouver’s Maenam and New York’s Kittichai, placing him among an exclusive group of the world’s top chefs.

“Cooking at the James Beard Foundation was an incredible honour,” says Chef An. “I’m thrilled to cook this menu in Maenam’s kitchen and share it with fellow Vancouverites.” The menu stays true to Chef An’s masterful technique and features authentic Thai dishes using pristine local ingredients. Guests can expect to taste everything from Crispy Egg Net Roll of Lobsters to Braised Pork Cheeks with a spiced palm sugar braise, steamed buns and truffle powder. Details and menu after the jump…

Dinner is served family-style over four services and begins at 6pm. Tickets are limited and on sale for $95 per seat plus tax, which includes the full James Beard remake menu, wine pairings and gratuity. Tickets can be purchased by calling the restaurant at 604-730-5579.
