The city’s top culinary talent will be hitting up Vancouver Aquarium this week for a seafood-themed event.
‘Fin to Tail‘ is a cooking class-style event that’s returning to the Aquarium for its second year on Thursday, August 3. And once again, it will feature a lineup of the city’s hottest chefs.
You can go along to the culinary extravaganza to enjoy special tastings provided by the local FISH (Fresh Ideas Start Here) Market and see live cooking demonstrations, all in the outdoor ocean courtyard.
Vancouver Aquarium’s own Ocean Wise executive chef Ned Bell, chef Quang Dang of West Restaurant, chef Andrea Carlson of Burdock & Co., chef Shelomme Bouvette of Chicha, and Karen Dar Woon of Your Secret Chef, will be sharing their expertise at the event.
You’ll even have the opportunity to sharpen your knife know-how with a live demonstration from Mike Wrinch of Knifewear. Plus, you’ll get to pick up recipe cards at the end of the night so you can create your own dishes at home.
Since the event is for adults-only, you’ll be able to explore the many galleries of the aquarium with a glass of wine or beer in hand. And to celebrate this wonderful foodie evening, we’re giving one lucky reader two free tickets to the event.
“Last year’s inaugural event was a hit, so we’ve brought back Fin to Tail for a second year to satiate the appetite that local foodies have to hone their home cooking skills. There’s no better way than this to spend a summer evening outside with friends and fellow seafood lovers. It’s an opportunity to learn about the ocean-friendly choices we can all make, and to learn firsthand that sustainable truly does taste better,” says chef Bell in a press release.
Tickets to the event are available online through Vancouver Aquarium, costing $90 each. This price includes your food, wine, and beer, for the entire evening. All proceeds raised from this event will directly support the aquarium’s ocean conservation programs.
