Vancouver Food Talks Vol 1 – 5 Speakers I Heard

Richard Wolak introducing Trevor Bird

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.

Our Speakers (L 2 R): Mike McDermid, Stephanie Yuen, Hunter J Moyes, Chef Trevor Bird, and Roberta LaQuaglia

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.

More details about these speakers are on Vancouver Foodsters website here. If you enjoyed these talks, there is a Food Talks Vol 2 and Vol 3.  Tickets for Vol 2 are on sale.  The event will be on July 10, at EBO Restaurant in Burnaby.  Tickets and details for Food Talks Vol 2 is here. If you enjoy wine, John Skinner is the Proprietor, Painted Rock Estate Winery Ltd will be one of the speakers.  Thank you to Richard Wolak, aka @vanfoodster, for organizing these talks. Enjoy!

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon. MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master. I met many great wine makers. I love to travel around the world, visiting wine regions and sharing my passion for food & wine with you. Come live vicariously through me, and enjoy all my recommended wines.
