As some of you know, I am involved in the Slow Food movement here in Vancouver and in Italy. I have been working with Janis and Todd at the Pair Bistro to put together a dinner that reflects local, sustainable and seasonal food. We would like to invite all Slow Food members and non-members to join us at Pair Bistro for this meeting of like minds and taste buds:
Pair Bistro Slow Food Dinner
March 28th, 2007, 7 pm
3763 W.10th Ave. (near Alma)
$40 (members)/ $50 (non-members) per person
+optional wine pairings $25
(tax and gratuity not included)
Pair Bistro truly reflects the Slow Food philosophy by bringing local products and culinary know-how together to be enjoyed in good company. Join Janis and Todd for a special ‘slow’ dinner at their Point Grey neighbourhood bistro. This meal will showcase local food and down to earth cuisine, which will include many small informal courses and amuse bouches. Over the past few seasons, Janis has become increasingly involved in the UBC Farm. She would like to take this opportunity to share with you the wonderful activities going on at the farm, which has a strong commitment to sustainable food production. In keeping with the UBC Farm values, the menu will be chosen based on fresh, seasonal, local produce and meats. This culinary adventure will be accompanied by carefully selected BC wine pairings. We would like this to be an informal evening where you can meet new people who are enthusiastic to learn more about local food, enjoy simple pleasures and take time to eat slowly with friends.
Reservations and deposit (a credit card number will do) must be made before March 26th through Janis at the Pair Bistro (tel. 604-224-7211 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org). Book early because there are only 34 seats available in this cozy restaurant and no walk-ins will be accepted. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a vegetarian option for this meal.
