The GOODS from Ubuntu Canteen
Vancouver, BC | On Tuesday, March 10th at 6pm, join Ubuntu Canteen Chef Dave Gunawan, winemaker Jay Drysdale of Bella Winery (Naramata) and the good people from Cropthorne Farm (Delta) for a night of sparkling wine and farm-fresh food at Ubuntu Canteen.
This special evening includes a discussion about food sustainability and the health of our soils. Guests are invited to participate in the conversation to share thoughts and ideas and will have the opportunity to connect directly with the people that grow and make food.
The focal point of this dinner will be the Potato! Expect discussion, tips on cooking and cultivation. Our goal is to enjoy incredible food and drink and have conversations around agriculture and why we must support the smaller farmers and foragers who are caring for the soil. Come and join the discussion! Tickets ($85) include a 5 course dinner with wine pairings.
ABOUT UBUNTU CANTEEN | Located in the heart of Vancouver’s burgeoning Fraserhood district, Ubuntu Canteen is the latest project for David Gunawan, the locavore-focused chef behind such notable and award-winning Vancouver restaurants as Farmer’s Apprentice and Grapes & Soda. Deriving its name from a Zulu word meaning ‘compassion’ and ‘humanity’, Ubuntu Canteen is a conscious and future-focused restaurant, bakery and coffee shop that provides a space where friends and families of all ages can gather together to break bread, share stories and build a strong sense of community. By day, Unbuntu offers a bakery that prepares organic pastries, fresh sourdough loaves and lighter fare comprising ingredients grown by its family network of local farmers and a full-service espresso bar using locally roasted, ethically sourced beans. By night, Ubuntu dims the lights, plays records and serves up a variety of approachable-yet-elevated dishes and fresh nightly features such as house-made pasta, rotisserie chicken and local seafood paired with house-made cocktails, biodynamic and natural wine and a rotating selection of some of BC’s best craft beer.
