Fresh from the Farm
Come out for a three-course meal, a specially created amuse bouche, botanically infused cocktails – all featuring locally grown BC products, and all for a good cause!
Location: Aphrodite’s Café and Pie Shop, 3598 W. 4th Ave
Cost: $35, with an additional $10 for a tasting of local wines
Reservations available from 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm; call Aphrodite’s at 604.733.8308 or book online at www.organiccafe.ca.
Diners will share their meal with the farmers who grew the ingredients featured on the menu, and who were past delegates. All the proceeds of this event will be donated to Slow Food Vancouver’s Terra Madre Fund, which fosters local food sustainability by sending farmers and chefs to the world-wide Terra Madre conference in Torino, Italy.
From September 23 to October 6, Aphrodite’s Fresh Sheet will feature the same three-course menu showcasing ingredients locally grown. Farmers who have been to Terra Madre will be on site, and 10 percent of the proceeds from each night will also be donated to the Terra Madre Fund.
