Upcoming Foodie Events In East Vancouver

24 Jul

We love food and checking out foodie events in and around East Vancouver. Honestly, there are a swack of them to choose from this summer and into the fall months.  Some from past experience we’ve learnt do sell out quickly. Thus, if there is something that’s up your alley, we recommend grabbing tickets sooner vs. later.  Whether you like pie, cookbooks, BBQ, wine, cocktails or cheese, we think there’s something for everyone.

Local craft distillers, Odd Society Spirits, and makers of some very fine cocktails are hosting a Midsummer Evening Cocktail Class Wednesday, July 26th.  You will learn to create 3 cocktails at your own cocktail station equipped with all the tools you’ll need. The class is led by Shaun Layton in partnership with Lavish Liquid Bar. Folks from Odd Society Spirits will also be on hand to assist so ensure everyone learns what they came to and, of course, answer any questions. Tickets for the event are $95 per person which includes a copper Moscow Mule cup and 10% off any bottles of their spirits you wish to purchase.   To purchase your ticket, you can email Miriam at info@oddsocietyspirits.com.

August – September 2017: Summer Pie Workshops – The Pie Shoppe

We can personally speak to the pie making talents of the French sisters that created this shop. These two sisters have some serious pie making experience under their belts and we have to say make some pretty dam fine pie.  They are teaching a number of workshops this summer if wish to master the art of pie making. If you prefer to start with pastry fundamentals, they have a workshop dedicated solely to that on September 13th. To register for their workshops, visit The Pie Shoppe.
