Vancouver, BC | Cibo Trattoria is offering guests a unique opportunity to sample true farm-to-table freshness by highlighting one of its local producers, Campagna Farm, during a one-night-only, four-course beef-themed dinner paired with hand-selected Italian wines on Wednesday, April 2 at 6:30 p.m.

Located in Abbotsford, BC, Campagna is a private, 280-acre farm owned by the restaurant itself and operated by Sandra and Leonardo Zambrano, a husband-and-wife team of veterinarians who purposefully and responsibly raise cattle for Cibo’s menu. Campagna’s herd is fed a proprietary blend of all-natural hay and grain as well as red wine for a minimum of 30 days, resulting in a product that marries the authentic flavour of beef with the trademark tenderness of veal.

“I’m very proud of our relationship with high-quality, local food producers, and on this night, we’re excited to showcase our very own Campagna Farm,” said Cibo Executive Chef Faizal Kassam, who receives the whole animals and, along with his team, carefully butchers each with a keen eye on using every available part in his cooking.

“This dinner is about celebrating good food,” said Cibo GM & Wine Director Robert Stelmachuk, who thoughtfully selected wines from the trattoria cellars to perfectly complement each course. “And while Faizal’s menu speaks for itself, the wine pairings only serve to further accent the robust flavour and exquisite texture of each unique dish.” Tickets to the one-night-only event are $99 per person, plus tax and gratuity, and may be purchased by calling 604.602.9570 or emailing robert[at]cibotrattoria.ca.
