The GOODS from Burdock & Co.
Vancouver, BC | Join us for a celebration of some of the most compelling non-interventionist, pure, expressive and unique BC wine being made. These are wild, raw, brave and original wines – which is precisely how we describe the inimitably ingredient focused, seasonal cuisine of our Chef Andrea Carlson. We’re very excited to be pairing them together in this four-course tasting menu.
We will be pouring wine and hearing stories from three of BC’s most talented producers: Alan Dickinson from Synchromesh, Master of Wine Rhys Pender from Little Farm, and Alison Scholefield from OK Crush pad. Expect to try pure, transparent expressions of place, wild fermented raw and rustic beauties, and even get some skin contact with orange wine.
WHEN | Tuesday, May 23 from 6:30pm – 9:30pm
TICKETS | Tickets cost $149. must be purchased ahead of time online here.

“Committed to organic, locally-sourced produce, Carlson’s menu is one of the more impressively creative offerings in the city right now.”—Fiona Morrow, Huffington Post, May 13, 2013
“I really like this place. Carlson takes her fine dining skills and funks it up although the dishes could sit comfortably on most fine dining menus and they’re tastier than many haute dishes I’ve had in high-priced spots. The food looks fresh and vibrant and lively and skillfully presented.”—Mia Stainsby, The Vancouver Sun, May 22, 2013
“If there were a competition for the restaurant that best represented Vancouver, Burdock & Co. would be the hands-down winner…this refined-yet-rustic charmer is a shining reflection of progressive local tastes.” –Alexandra Gill, Globe and Mail, June 21, 2013
