The GOODS from Tuc Craft Kitchen
Vancouver, BC | Tuc Craft Kitchen will continue celebrating its fifth anniversary by spotlighting some of the best small-batch, boutique wineries from BC’s Okanagan Valley when it hosts a special Taste of BC Terroir Dinner at the Gastown restaurant at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, November 20.
The one-night-only affair will feature executive chef Roy Flemming’s signature brand of rustic comfort food paired with two unique Okanagan-grown wines during each course. The five-course menu includes dishes such as coconut chili bisque paired with Riesling from Ex Nihilo Vineyards and Daydreamer Wines, braised BC pork cheeks with carrot top chimichurri complemented by Meritage from Fairview Cellars and Covert Farms Family Estate, and chocolate ginger budino & salted caramel paired with Syrah blends from Da Silva Vineyards and Moon Curser Vineyards.
All 10 wines have been hand-selected by Tuc co-owner and sommelier Colin Ross, who will co-host the event alongside BC Wine Shop owner and Okanagan Valley authority Gerrit Van Staalduinen.
