The Goods from the Chefs’ Table Society
Vancouver, BC | Join the Chefs’ Table Society of BC (CTS) and the BC Salmon Marketing Council from Friday, August 27 to Sunday, August 29 to celebrate the iconic wild BC salmon, fishers, and chefs. In 2021 the Wild Salmon Celebration will continue to be province-wide with 10 participating chefs and restaurants in various regions of BC.
The multi-city celebration in support of wild BC salmon, commercial fishers, and a healthy seafood choice is especially important to showcase the versatility of salmon and the resilience of both the fishery and fishers. Each chef will prepare the wild salmon in their own unique way that expresses their personal culinary style. For three days consumers are encouraged to order these special dishes, appetizers or entrees, with pricing set by the restaurant.
This is also an opportunity for the public to learn more about wild BC salmon while supporting the fishers who make it possible to bring this product to market and onto our plates. With BC wild salmon you know where your food is coming from and who is harvesting it.
While limited closures have been implemented for this year, consumers can be confident that the fish that come to market are sustainably caught. And that means that when you see wild salmon on a menu, you can be assured you are supporting a sustainable fishery, BC fishermen and coastal communities up and down the coast.
Some of the 2021 participating chefs and restaurants include:
Lisa Ahier, SoBo
Angus An, Robert Belcham, & Hamid Salimad, Popina Cantina
Alex Chen & Roger Ma, Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar
Tret Jordan & Alex Tung, Miantiao
Vish Mayekar, Caffe La Tana
Ken Nakano, Aura Waterfront Restaurant & Patio at Inn at Laurel Point
Roger Sliemen, Quails’ Gate Winery
James Walt, IL Caminetto

With discussions about sustainable practices happening more frequently, CTS President Darren Clay states, “Supporting our local fisheries is more important than ever and the province-wide Wild Salmon Celebration allows the Chefs’ Table Society to be a part of the conversation by providing educational information and support to the fishers and chefs who bring this amazing, local, and healthy option to our plates.”
The salmon will be provided by Organic Ocean Seafood and is being sponsored by the BC Salmon Marketing Council.
