Taste - A Celebration of BC Wine & Cuisine
Press Release – Vancouver Wine Event
A Celebration of BC Cuisine & Wine
The Food & Wine
The event is called Taste and it aims to pair local farmers, grocers, cheesemakers up with BC's boutique wineries to create an evening of sensory harmony. It's a blind wine tasting to encourage you to step away from the baggage of your preconceptions of grape and producer and simply experience the wine. Food pairings will seek to enhance each category of wine; crisp, elegant, aromatic, smooth or spicy. From sherry, huckleberry truffles to chantrelle mushroom ravioli to lovely handmade cheese by BC Foodies; you will be treated to the bounty of BC ingredients.
BC wineries involved include Blue Mountain, Wild Goose, Le Vieux Pin, La Stella with more to come.
BC ingredients will be provided by Skookum Harvest Wild Foods, BC Foodie(cheese) and Now BC Organic Food Co-op with more to come. BC Foodies will pair their specialty cheeses with each of the wine categories.
All proceeds from the event are going to support a very worthy cause. Mount Pleasant Elementery School has had it's funding cut, Taste is being organized to fill in some of the financial gap left after these cuts. Colleen Browning is our representative from the school and can tell you more about the specifics if you would like.
