Some of Vancouver’s top restaurants like Beta 5 Chocolates, Edible Canada, Forage, and ORU will also be on hand chopping, cooking and plating appetizer-sized dishes highlighting the BC VQA wines. There will even be a little bit of healthy competition going on between the restaurants so you know that they will bringing nothing but their best as they vie for best pairing plate and best overall dish of the night.
The night will also feature the obligatory silent auction featuring some great offerings like luxury hotel stays, wine lots, and entertainment packages.
