Vancouver, BC | Join us August 26 through September 22 as Bistro Pastis concludes its culinary ramble through France in the Auvergne and Gascony. The Massif Central, the rugged terrain of central France, informs the flavours of this region. Here are fast flowing streams fed by the Alps and sparse hills where sheep graze. Flavours here are big, bold and rustic. Look for Trout, succulent Lamb and Duck Confit. The dinner, like the season, ends with a touch of sweetness as you linger over a final digestif and relish the last of the red wine-marinated strawberries. As our summer draws to a close, you’ll be left with many happy memories of your virtual culinary tour through France and its Cuisine d’ Été. Find out all the details after the jump… Read more

Vancouver, BC | Join us August 5 through 25 as Cuisine d’Été travels to Provence – the land where summer never ends and the sunsets are as rosy as its wine. This area is the home to Bistro Pastis’ namesake aperitif – Pastis, the anise-flavoured beverage favoured in countries around the Mediterranean.

Summer in Provence features ‘les fruits de mer’ – Sardines, Red Snapper, Calamari; as well as regional classics such as Daube de Boeuf. Pair with a glass or two of citrusy rosé or hearty red and in no time, you will find yourself transported to a café on La Croisette or a port-side bistro in Marseille.

Summer evenings were made for lingering over good food and good wine with good friends. We invite you to enjoy a summer evening in Provence at Bistro Pastis. Menu after the jump… Read more
