We were invited to the ChefmeetsBCGrape event back in June. Co-produced with the Wines of British Columbia, it’s a wine and food fundraiser for the Arts Club Theatre, celebrating the finest offerings of wine and food from across BC. I had a backlog of photos and posts to go through, and finally here I am to show you some mouth-watering photos from the event. Better late than never, right?

It was a sold out event with more than 500 wine lovers. Each of us went from station to station to taste dishes put on by 15 local restaurants, and sample wines from close to 100 BC wineries. You know there would be no shortage of good food and good wines.

Each of us was given an event guide, with a slot for the wine glass. What a great idea to free up our hands from juggling plates and glasses!

I’ve always been a Christmas buffet brunch person, since you have a wide range of selection and more food items to choose from. If you’re like me, here is a list of restaurants, as far as I know, that are offering buffet brunch on Christmas Day. Reservations required, and some do get booked up really quickly so you may be out of luck, but hopefully this list will help give you some additional ideas:

30 Food Stations + 10+ Beverage Stations  + Live Jazz + 300 guests = One unusual fundraiser.

A few weeks ago we told you about Hot Chefs Cool Jazz VI, a fundraiser for Bocuse d’Or Canada and the 2011 team led by Chef Ryan Stone. VanFoodies.com was invited to attend this event, so Mr. and I went and let me tell you, it’s quite the privilege to have some of BC’s top chefs cooking for you at the same spot.

How it works?

Each of the food stations was paired with a beverage station. Guests were encouraged to explore by matching each dish with its respective beverage pairing. And to make it easy for us (especially after a few drinks), the pairings were marked with matching colour of table cloths.

Not only did this event showcase the culinary talent we have in our province, it also featured local agriculture and aquaculture products. All wines were from BC wineries and local ingredients such as albacore tuna, spot prawns, oysters and scallops were used.

So without further adieu, take out your bib and let us walk you through this mouth-watering photo blog post.
