Last week was the first, Vol 1, of Vancouver Foodster’s Food Talks. It was held in the W2 Media Cafe downtown. To warm us up, we were treated to an array of Indian inspired non-alcoholic drinks and appetizers, and red & white wines from Misconduct Wine Company from Penticton.
There was a wide range of speakers this evening. Two chefs, a food writer, a manager for Ocean Wise seafood, and a manager for Vancouver’s Farmers Market. What they all had in common is their love of Vancouver, and food, and supporting our local food producers.
Here are my youtube video snippets of the full talks by the 5 speakers this evening. I hope you enjoy them and find them thought provoking.
