“From miso to vinegars, fish sauce and sourdough; fermentation transform flavours in our food.”
Fermentation is the theme, and you’re invited! Forage Vancouver’s Chef Chris Whittaker has been busy collaborating with HandTaste Ferments’ Todd Graham, and they’ve managed to cover a lot of ground. Foods like Japanese dry ferments, misos, seasonal fruit vinegars, herring, and fish sauce are just a few examples of what’s on the menu. (Exact menu details, including the beer and cider pairings, will be revealed closer to the event.)
“Casual, comfortable and affordable, Chef Chris Whittaker’s Forage celebrates all things BC. Forage loves working to create community. Whether it’s a West End cause or part of the burgeoning movement committed to farm to table fare. Forage is there.”
Forage is no joke, and this event is not one to miss out on. As winner of the 2015 Diner’s Choice Award, as well as Trip Advisor’s 2015 Certificate of Excellence Award, this humble restaurant boasts some major flavour, and exceptional intention.
The communal dining situation creates an atmosphere of sharing, and the staff go out of their way to answer any questions their customers might have about the food—they want you to ask.
Back to admirable intention, Chef Chris Whittaker has made sure the west-end restaurant has pioneered responsible restaurant management through zero waste efforts, energy consumption reduction, and local community support. From farmers to fishers, Forage is on it. They’re proud supporters of Ocean Wise—Whittaker is even a double gold medal winner at the annual Chowder Chowdown!
Forage’s partnership with BC Hydro and Live Smart BC are also unconventional and inspiring. For more information about these collaborations, visit thenextcourse.ca
