Experience a private collaboration between four star Vancouver chefs and four cutting edge contemporary artists. Each chef is partnered with one artist and will create mouth watering tapas inspired by the artwork. Guests will meet the chef artist teams for an intimate talk about how their work is created as they sip and taste the evening away. Our mixologists are designing fabulous cocktails for the evening, making this one of the most creative and surprising culinary pop-ups of the year
Meet the chefs:
Chef Heather Dosman is one of the most creative young chefs in the Vancouver dining scene. Taste her foraged, fresh cuisine at Existential Eating events, the fantastic pop-up natural wine bar: Juice Bar or working in the heat of the Farmer's Apprentice kitchen.
Chef Sarah Robinson cut her teeth cooking at Tofino’s highly acclaimed seafood restaurant, Shelter. Her training was under Chefs Dale McKay (Ensemble Tap) and Brad Hendrickson (Biota). Owner of Something Special Catering, she specializes in West Coast cuisine and her charcuterie platters are a true work of art.
Chef Dawn Doucette is a culinary powerhouse, you've seen her on Top Chef Canada and as of Nov 1st this year you will see her opening her restaurant, Douce Diner in North Vancouver. Her roots are French Acadian with a distinctly southern influence, as such her dishes are out of this world.
