Food lovers from Whistler and beyond won’t want to miss out on what guarantees to be an incredible fusion of flavours, which will have them talking about their new found love of raw food for months. The menu for the dinner is gazpacho, caesar salad, flat bread hummus pizza and chocolate ganache slice. Wine will also be available for purchase.
The raw food restaurant pop-up team of Sarah Uy, Priscilla Levac, Hayley Ingman, Jennie Small, Kristine Leise and their wonderful volunteers are excited to work together again to share with Whistler just how incredible raw food can be. Feedback from the previous three events has been extremely positive, with many people experiencing raw food for the first time and being very impressed with the dishes they were served. The team hopes that a new venue can be found and this won’t be the last of the dinners, but are nevertheless reflecting on how much they have enjoyed working together at Burnt Stew.
When asked what she has enjoyed about the events, chef Sarah Uy said, “I enjoy the creativity and flexibility I am able to use for the pop-up dinners. I also enjoy collaborating with like-minded people and turning others on to plant-based dining. To nourish and be nourished and to have a positive relationship with the land, the people and to oneself are all elements that these dinners literally "bring to the table".
Earthsave Whistler’s Hayley Ingman has similar enthusiasm, “The raw food dinners have been so much fun to be a part of. I feel honoured to have helped these two very talented chefs. One of my favourite parts of the events has been to watch them work in the kitchen, creating 40 plates of each dish, seeing each plate grow ingredient by ingredient until a beautifully artistic, incredibly flavourful dish is presented. Then, of course, tasting the dishes is an absolute treat and I have been blown away by just how good they taste.”
“But what really brings a smile to my face and makes these events so enjoyable is seeing the delight from the guests when they try the food, and hearing their incredible feedback for the chefs. I will miss doing these dinners and hope that we are able to find a new venue so that these chefs can continue to share their phenomenal creations and inspire people to create healthier, greener dishes of their own.”
Raw food is a growing trend with people from all culinary backgrounds venturing outside of their usual fare to try this healthy, energising cuisine that is bursting with flavour and melt in the mouth textures. Whistler residents and visitors are fortunate to have these two Living Light Culinary Institute trained chefs to bring them a little taste of raw food heaven of their own for an evening.
The meal will be 100% raw, plant-based and therefore suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those who are gluten or lactose intolerant. People with nut allergies should alert the chef when purchasing tickets. The event is limited to 40 people and tickets sell out quickly, so it is recommended to buy tickets early.
