Posts Tagged ‘FreshTap’

Earlier this week, we were invited to attend an event called Bite and Sip, a boutique food show where meat, produce and wine on tap unite. For a quick recap, I checked out booths by Trimpac Meats and Freshpoint, and tried a few bites using ingredients carried by these two companies, including:

  • Tomato bocconcini pipettes
  • Lamb loin with feta
  • Wagyu short ribs with wasabi mayo

I got there towards the later part of the event, so not very many items were left for tasting. Therefore, I took the time to stop by the booths and chatted with the folks there. I found out about PEI Beef, and that Glowbal Restaurant Group is the exclusive restaurant buyer of PEI beef here in Vancouver (I was quite impressed by the meat quality when I ate at Black + Blue earlier this year). You can also get it retail at perhaps two meat shops locally.
