SEEN IN VANCOUVER #325: Butter On The Endive Cooking At The Found And The Freed

It’s cool when two of your favourite things come together (like peanut butter and jam), but it’s especially awesome when – seemingly – the two have nothing to do with each other but work tremendously (like bourbon and badminton). The latter was the case earlier this week when chef Owen Lightly of Butter On The Endive was cooking at The Found And The Freed. The pop-up shop of aged, often Vancouver-centric oddments and pretty Canadiana was celebrating the unveiling of its third incarnation at 110 Water Street in Gastown with a little shindig, and BOTE was doing the catering. The walls were all lined with the shop’s eclectic wares, save for a bartending station and an impromptu kitchen, where Owen, aided by Market’s Alvaro Musso, was slinging seared scallops with bacon-wrapped salsify, fried oyster Po’Boys stacked with pickled red onions, ham and sweetbread croquettes, and bowls of hot duck consomme with shroom tortellini. Also had were plenty of cool things we want, well made drinks, and not a few fun people. You can check out the shop from 11am to 7pm, seven days a week. Dig the old Vancouver bus rollers, Breasted maps, ancient lockers and assorted wonderments. Expect to see items from the store in future posts, but in the meantime, feast on shots from the night by Julian Kenchenten after the jump…
