Chefs’ Table Society of BC hosts Wild Salmon Celebration August 25

It is the time of the season for wild salmon to start arriving at our BC rivers.  To celebrate this event, the Chefs’ Table Society of BC is putting on a special dinner, featuring our super natural, fresh salmon.  I love to pair my salmon with Pinot Noir.  Below is the press release about the event.  It sounds delicious.  Get your tickets before they sell out!

[Vancouver, BC] It’s that beautiful midsummer time of year in BC when seasonal ingredients like peaches and tomatoes shine on our plates, and wild sockeye salmon makes its seasonal run.
 
On Saturday, August 25, 2018, join the Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia and the BC Salmon Marketing Council from 6:30pm-9pm, for a celebration of an iconic seasonal BC product: wild salmon. Tickets, $59, and more information here.
 
Tasting-sized dishes featuring BC wild sockeye salmon will be prepared by six well-known Chefs’ Table Society of BC member chefs, who unite for this event over their love of the ocean.
Grazing through six food stations and savouring BC Salmon Safe wines while live music plays, you will participate in the only outdoor high-end event celebrating BC wild salmon, generously provided by Grand Hale.
