The GOODS from Butter On The Endive

Vancouver, BC | Butter on the Endive is a Vancouver-based boutique catering company that focuses on providing quality dining experiences and unique food events to our culture. We find interesting locations around the city to collaborate with like-minded food and lifestyle industry people to showcase the talent this city has to offer. We collaborate because it pushes creativity, while staying true to authentic community building.

This event will be at Union Wood & Supply Co. in Railtown with collaborator Todd Graham, head brewer from R&B Brewing Company, and Inner City Farms as the primary supplier.

Chef Owen Lightly is working with Graham to provide beautiful layers of wood and smoke throughout the food and the beer. Graham will be creating a special cask ale using wood from Union Wood & Supply, and will be there to chat and help keep the beer flowing. Lightly is also working with Inner City Farms as the main supplier to create a menu that echoes the flavours and techniques of the American South, while sticking with what our geographical local bounty has to offer.

The food portion of the night is a stand up meal of small bites and fine crafted small plates. Whether you are dipping into the cask, or devouring the small plates, or sipping on the signature cocktail you can check out the woodworking shop and showroom, and talk to Craig Pearce and the fine folks at Union Wood Supply about their objects of art (available to buy that night!) It will be coming together of artisinal doers-and-thinkers of Vancouver’s creative culture. Learn more after the jump…

Vancouver Urban winery is bringing the wine, and Butter on the Endive will be providing lil’ bites to help Union Wood Supply welcome their clients and guests to come celebrate their opening one year ago!
