The GOODS from Royal Dinette
Vancouver, BC | Mindful sourcing and cooking are two themes prevalent in both chefs Andrea Carlson and Eva Chin’s kitchens. To celebrate their deep and rewarding relationship with local producers Cropthorne Farm and Sole Foods, the two are joining forces on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 for an evening of creative, vegetable forward dishes with seafood in a long table format. Held at Royal Dinette (905 Dunsmuir Street), the dinner begins at 6 p.m. and features eight-courses with optional wine pairings.
“We treat our farming partners like family,” says Chin, executive chef at Royal Dinette. “Without them, we wouldn’t be able to provide our guests with such fresh, seasonal, and incredible produce. When Andrea and I met, we knew we had to collaborate to celebrate that produce – vegetables will definitely be the stars of the evening. What’s even more amazing is that Cropthorne Farm and Sole Foods are both female-operated.”
The eight-course dinner will feature spring vegetables, such as radishes, leafy greens, wild herbs, plus local and sustainable seafood from Fresh Ideas Start Here and Coastline. The optional wine pairings, curated by wine director Claire Saksun, includes naturalist wines from the old and new world.
“Food is something that can be enjoyed so honestly and simply, and it’s with the help of our local farms that we can reach this goal,” says Carlson, owner and chef of Burdock & Co, known for her pioneering focus on Canadian Pacific Northwest cooking and the 100-mile diet. “We are honoured to be able to put on a dinner with Cropthorne Farm and Sole Foods and can’t wait for guests to see what Eva and I have up our sleeves for the menu.”
