WHAT IS IT?
Soil to Soul is an eight-course dinner meant to celebrate the Lower Mainland’s “local bounty.” The best part? Net proceeds from the evening will be donated to Growing Chefs, a non-profit that helps connect chef volunteers with elementary schools to teach kids about growing and cooking their own food.
WHY IT COULD BE A GREAT EVENING.
It’s a collaborative dinner featuring courses prepared by chefs from different eateries, including ONO Vancouver, YVR Prep, Wooden Boat Food Company and The Phamily Table. Each course will be paired with wines from Lone Tree Cellars, too.
WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR.
Expect to hear stories about where the food came from and what inspired the chefs. The hope is that, after the meal, folks will have a new-found appreciation for locally grown foods, according to a press release.
