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!

To celebrate the launch of its new Casse-Croûte (aka snack) menu, Tableau Bistro organized an oyster shucking competition and we were invited to the event. The celebrity oyster shucking competition featured The Province’s Fred Lee, Urban Rush’s Fiona Forbes, Rock 101’s Bro Jake, and fellow food blogger Victoria Chemko.

It was fun watching the celebrities shuck away these fresh oysters. I was very impressed by how quickly they finished shucking 6 oysters each. They also had to decorate their plate before judging began.

And the shucking begins!

We were invited by Tableau Bistro to a private party to kick off its first annual “Heads or Tails” Spot Prawn Party. I am a huge fan of spot prawns – I love that it’s meaty yet sweet. At the beginning of the season, we had spot prawns three-way at home: sashimi, steamed and baked heads, and I truly enjoyed it. Therefore I was quite excited to be going to this party.

When I arrived, the dining room was already bustling. Looking around, I saw various stations set up for self-serve dishes, while a few others items were being passed around by the serving staff. That’s quite a creative way to get the guests moving around the space.
