This Sandwich, That Beer: Movember Edition throwdown is a combined effort between Chef Mike McClintock, Doug Stephen (DL Chicken, Downlow Burgers, Vennie’s Sub Shop, The Drive Canteen) and Kevin Wood (This Sandwich, That Beer). They’ve challenged six of their Vancouver chef pals to come up with a meatball sandwich recipe that pairs perfectly with a local beer. Check out the line-up of chefs and breweries below:
Vish Mayekar, executive chef, Pepino’s and Caffe La Tana
Justin Cheung, chef and co-owner, Potluck Hawkers Eatery
Lina Caschetto, chef, Say Hey Cafe and Deli
Johnny Bridge, UBC Campus and Mind The Bar
Bryan Satterford and Clay Yen, Juke Fried Chicken and Ribs
Boris McKay, Vennie’s Sub Shop
The friendly competition goes down from 11am-3pm, followed by the handing out of awards (as chosen by eaters and drinkers) for Best Sandwich, Best Beer, and Best Pairing. Tickets (available here) are $49 each, including everything you need to make your educated vote – a 2oz sandwich from each of the six chefs, plus at least as many 4oz beers to sip along with them – and a raffle ticket to win more schwag.
