Head out to Shawnigan Lake this weekend for one of BC’s longest standing local food celebrations, Feast of Fields. Chefs Garrett Schack and Mike Dunlop will be serving delectable small bites featuring local ingredients.
Feast of Fields is a four hour wandering gourmet harvest festival highlighting the connections between farmers and chefs, field and table, and between farm folks and city folks. With a wine glass and linen napkin in hand, guests stroll across a farmers field, traveling from tent to tent (sometimes through the barn, past the tractor or around the chicken coup), listening to live music, and tasting gourmet creations from BC top chefs, farmers, fishers, ranchers, food artisans, vintners, brewers, distillers and other beverage producers.
Feast of Fields is FarmFolk CityFolk’s largest annual fundraiser. Funds raised from these events support FarmFolk CityFolk’s work to cultivate a local, sustainable food system in British Columbia. To find out more about FarmFolk CityFolk, see the event website.
