The Goods from EAT! Vancouver
Vancouver, BC | On Friday, November 8th the season’s foremost food festival, EAT! Vancouver, will once again be bringing together some of North America’s most acclaimed culinary talents for its one-night-only signature canapé event.
Nine guest chefs and pastry chefs from Newfoundland to Oregon will complete their annual migration to downtown Vancouver to join their Vancouver peers for EAT! Harvest. Over the course of 2.5 hours (7 – 9:30pm) all 15 local and visiting chefs will be sharing their unique culinary interpretations of one common theme: the Fall and Winter’s best ingredients, presented as beautiful bite-sized morsels. This familiar formula is the key to experiencing the most sizeable portion of the festival’s huge amount of talent and tastes all in one lively, grand setting.
For the first time ever, the Vancouver Club will be providing the venue for this year’s Signature Event. The annual food and cooking festival also has a brand new charitable cause: the BC Cancer Foundation. Net proceeds from EAT! Harvest will go directly towards the organization’s research efforts in cancer prevention, treatment and patient quality of life, which means you can treat yourself well and do good for others at the same time.
Tickets for EAT! Harvest are $135 per person. The cost includes the full array of canapés paired with wine and extraordinary company of the participating chefs and your happy, hungry peers. Get your ticket here.
