Feast with Wolf in the Fog and friends this spring at boat-to-table festival
Are you ready to Feast with Wolf in the Fog and friends? Tofino’s annual boat-to-table food festival will be taking place between May 8-24 and the team at Wolf in the Fog, Air Canada enRoute’s 2014 Canada’s Best New Restaurant, are hosting two very special guests as part of the festivities.
Kicking off with the popular 2nd Annual Boat to Tailgate party on May 8, Feast Tofino highlights the community’s culinary scene and the town’s beautiful location on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
For one night only, on May 13, Executive Chef Joël Watanabe from Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie in Vancouver’s Chinatown will be joining Chef Nick Nutting in the Wolf kitchen to create special dishes that draw on both of their unique influences. Chef Watanabe incorporates the classic French and Japanese culinary techniques of his heritage at Bao Bei to create a modern twist on Chinese food inspired by Taiwan, Shanghai and the Sichuan province. Chef Nutting will complement these influences with his focus on fresh Tofitian ingredients and locally foraged finds. Chef Watanabe’s dishes will appear as specials on the Wolf menu so tickets are not required but reservations are advised. Call 1-250-725-WOLF (9653) to book your table.
On May 22, Chef David Hawksworth of Vancouver’s Hawksworth Restaurant will be bringing a taste of his contemporary Canadian cuisine to Tofino for one special formal dinner. Walk the red carpet, join in a champagne toast and listen to the operatic harmonies of musical guests Elysium III and Julian Smith. London based wine guru Tom Harrow will be pairing wines with the six-course meal and tickets cost $150 for the evening. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketfly via the Feast Tofino website or by calling the restaurant at 1-250-725-WOLF (9653).
During Feast Tofino festival, the downstairs Den will host special happy hours on Saturday afternoons from 4-5.30pm. Each will showcase a local Vancouver Island distillery in a feature punch and cocktail created by bar manager Hailey Pasemko and a representative from the distillery will be on hand to talk about their spirits. Participating distilleries will be: Phillip’s Fermentorium (May 9), Victoria Spirits (May 16) and Ampersand Distilling Co (May 23). Light canapés will be served with the cocktails, which will be available for purchase at the bar.
Wolf in the Fog will join the community in celebrating the end of the festival at the Tofino Dockside Festival on May 23. For more information visit the official Feast website: www.feasttofino.com.
