Vancouver Community College is once again holding their popular pop-up restaurant, “The Chef’s Table” led by Executive Chef Hamid Salimian and the International Culinary Arts students. The pop-up restaurant will be showcased at the VCC's Broadway Campus located at Glen Drive and 8th Avenue. The Chef’s Table, features a five course prix fixe dinner for just $30.00 or $45.00 with local BC wine pairings. The pop-up restaurant is open Tuesdays to Fridays and runs from March 8th to April 23rd, 2017.
One of VCC’s most famous culinary alumni and now instructor, Hamid Salimian has racked up some serious awards and accolades including the Georgia Straight’s “Best Chef in the City” in 2012 when he was the Executive Chef at Diva at the Met. He has represented Canada on the international stage at the world’s most prestigious culinary competitions including the the World Culinary Cup and World Culinary Olympics and taken home gold. The VCC pop-up restaurant allows guests to see chef Hamid and the international culinary students in action as they prepare each course at the plating station located at the front of the restaurant.
The menu changes every two weeks and many loyal patrons return to experience new dishes and wine pairings. The current menu features Tuna Cannelloni with Side Stripe Prawns, Grilled Octopus, Foie Gras & Duck Confit, Roasted Beef Striploin and concludes with heavenly White Chocolate and Strawberries. Excellent local wine pairings for this menu feature Fern Walk Sauvignon Blanc, Ganton & Larsen Chardonnay, Sumac Ridge Reserve Pinot Noir, Red Rooster Hen House Ruffled and Grey Monk Odyssey Brut Rose. Outstanding value!
