The dinner is part of a program organized by Edible BC called Cooking with BC’s Best Market Dinner. At each dinner, a renowned local chef would display his or her culinary skills and inspirations. First booked in February this year, we finally got to savour the dishes that we have been yearning for over the last six months. The chef for dinner was Lee Parsons, the executive chef at Bacchus Restaurant in the Wedgewood Hotel.

Present were Jonathan, Sherman, Mijune, Anita, and Joyce and I. The cool part of the dinner – other than having a well known chef cooking for you – is that the event was inside the after-hours Granville Public Market. The table of 20 was situated between the Stock Market and Edible BC’s retail store. On the table welcoming us were bread from La Baguette and a lovely dish of spot-prawn olive oil and balsamic vinegar (aged in a pinot noir wine barrel). Cooking out of a make-shift kitchen at the Edible BC store were Chef Parsons and his sous chef Vincent. There were literally two induction burners and one small convection oven.

The five-course tasting menu consisted of the following dishes and wine pairings:

First Course/Amuse Bouche: Chilled Essence of Vine Ripened Tomato

(Pemberton Distillery Schramm Vodka Summer Cocktail)
