5 Vancouver Food Events to Look Forward to in January 2020

Sourced from Burdock & Co.

A Happy Holidays to everyone!

While December has been full of activity in the city, January 2020 in Vancouver promises to be a busy and exciting month as well.

With new restaurant openings and tons of food and drink events, there’s plenty to keep your palate entertained in the New Year. Here are five ideas to get you started:

Bar Gobo at Burdock & Co.

A sparkly disco ball with excellent food, drinks, and tunes. On select Mondays, Burdock & Co. (2702 Main Street) hosts a pop-up series called Bar Gobo. Basically, they’re themed events with eats and drinks, as well as music by DJ Chris Allen. The first one of the New Year will be held on January 20, 2020 from 8pm onwards. It’ll be a collaboration between Chef Andrea Carlson and Curious Oyster. Expect food that showcases local, seasonal, and organic ingredients, as well as oysters aplenty. Walk-in only.

Stock & Supply

The very anticipated Stock & Supply is set to launch mid-January. Located in the Delta Hotels by Marriott Vancouver Downtown Suites (550 West Hastings Street), the new establishment will meld artisanal cocktails, shared plates that are locally focused, and an art program. Helmed by Executive Chef Mike Reid, Stock & Supply was named in order to signal its commitment to the local producers, suppliers, and artists from whom it will source. Seasonality and sustainability will be part of its cooking ethos.

A significant draw will be its design-your-own-board menu option that will start with a base, like beer-infused mustard or fresh herb hummus, and then include add-ons like house-smoked pork belly and a pickled carrot trio. Pre-designed boards (e.g. The Garden’s Board) during brunch will also be available.

Wildebeest X The Acorn ‘Root to Shoots’ Winter Harvest Dinner

Both The Acorn and Wildebeest share a passion for local ingredients and seasonality; as a result, an upcoming collaboration event between Chef Devon Latte and Chef Ian McHale is bound to be incredibly delicious. On January 13, 2020, starting at 7pm, a ‘Root to Shoots’ Winter Harvest Dinner will be taking place at Wildebeest (120 West Hastings Street). The unique and multi-course vegetarian meal (vegan options possible) begins with black turtle bean and carrot terrine, moving onto mushroom tartare, Harukei turnips, and potato and alliums, and finishing with ‘trees and flowers’ (grand fir Chantilly with dame’s rocket flower curd, Nootka rose, and cannoli pastry). The dinner is $69 per person plus tax and gratuity, with an option to add drink pairings. Zero proof pairings will also be available. Tickets are available on-line.
