La Mezcaleria Chef Mariana Gabilondo to Prepare Special Long Table Feast on Bowen Island

Got dinner plans on July 20th? You do now. Check this out: Bowen Island’s beautiful Home Farm will be hosting one of Vancouver’s best Mexican eateries, La Mezcaleria, that evening for their first ever long table dinner.

In the spirit of bringing together the best the land has to offer at the height of summer, La Mezcaleria will be showing off how the Mexican tradition of small town “Ferias” are as true a Farm to Table Feast as any modern Long Table event could wish for.

A “Feria” is held yearly in hundreds of small towns across Mexico, and used to gather together long lost family, friends and stories. It’s a day used to tell stories, to sing together and to show off with food, no one is a stranger, and no one is left out, young and old are welcome and food is prepared to be enjoyed by all.

There will be live entertainment and a take-away gift for everyone.

Here’s a snapshot of the menu.

The Team at La Mezcaleria, Chef Mariana Gabilondo, Chef Jose Mujica and Chef Yessica Garcia, (and a few more of the Mezcal family) will be cooking and transforming all of the marvelous products that the Home Farm Gardens Family can provide.

In the true spirit of farm to table, the menu will be made from as much Homefarm product as we can get, and made right there on the farm as all true “Ferias” are done.

We invite you to come meet us, talk to us, share with us your love of the farm and Island, and we will feast you and fill you with our stories and food to remember us by.

Tickets can be purchased here (though we understand they are currently having some trouble with their online point of sale). We’ll see you there!
