For the past two years, the Vancouver Aquarium sustainable seafood program Ocean Wise™ has partnered with the Naramata Bench Wineries Association to produce the successful Wine for Waves event. This year, we are pleased to share that we have evolved the event into the annual EAT! Vancouver Food and Cooking Festival, through the Canadian Flavours Gala. It looks like Vancouverites can’t get enough of this fun and glitzy event, and Ocean Wise is happy to bring it back this year, only bigger and better.
Taking place on April 30 at the Terminal City Club, the Canadian Flavours Gala has brought back the highlights of the previous years. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the best of Naramata Bench’s spring release wines, enjoy sustainable seafood tastings from a variety of Ocean Wise partner restaurants, and bid in the wine auction. Partial proceeds go towards supporting Ocean Wise conservation programs. An exciting addition to this event includes the participation of restaurants across the country. Below is a list of the Ocean Wise partners who will be participating in the gala:
- River Café (Calgary)
- The Westin Edmonton (Edmonton)
- Hillside Winery Bistro (Naramata)
- The Vanilla Pod (Naramata)
- The Kitchen (Naramata)
- Edible Canada (Vancouver)
- Vancouver Aquarium (Vancouver)
- YEW seafood +bar (Vancouver)
If sustainable seafood canapés prepared by talented chefs and the very first spring wine pours from British Columbia’s Naramata Bench appeal to you, then the Canadian Flavours Gala will be an event you don’t want to miss!
