Featured Vancouverite: Kristen Stevens

Hometown: Kelowna, British Columbia

How long have you been a Vancouverite?
I moved here when I was 19 and fell in love with the city. While I search for warmer weather nearly every winter, I really can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Occupation:
I run The Endless Meal Supper Club. We host dinner parties that are held in mystery locations, usually in Gastown. I also hold social dinners where people can buy tickets for a seat at the table, rather than booking the entire space for their group. I also publish a food blog called The Endless Meal that is all about casual but delicious food. It allows me a great opportunity to use photography to express my love for food. I was always told that if you do what you love it won’t feel like work. Perhaps it is cheesy, but it certainly seems to be true. I feel really lucky to have a job that I absolutely love.

Best place to buy fresh ingredients and foodie delights in the city:
During the summer any of the Vancouver Farmers Markets are by far the best place to buy delicious things to eat. There’s hardly a Wednesday evening that goes by without a trip to the Main Street market. I also love Le Marché St George. It is the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon sipping an Americano and browsing for delicious, locally made treats.

Favourite Vancouver artist: 
Oh boy, narrowing down my favourite anything to just one thing is next to impossible. I can tell you that I love the artwork by local artist Jason Athen. I’ve been following him for quite a few years now and am super excited to be exhibiting his artwork here at The Endless Meal Supper Club.

Best way to meet new people in the city:
At one of The Endless Meal Supper Club’s social dinners, of course! Honestly, I think that the best way to meet new people is simply to be friendly, engaging and open to the opportunity.
