Sakura at Home with Vancouver’s Top Chefs this April

Seven of B.C.’s most talented chefs are joining forces to support the non-profit Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival as it prepares to launch its second year of programming amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, the Festival’s most important fundraiser, Sakura Night, has been transformed into Sakura at Home. The culinary event, happening on April 25, will see seven all-star chefs create exclusive take-out meals that capture the beauty of the cherry blossom.

Chefs include:

Each tax-deductible ticket will entitle the buyer to an exclusive cherry blossom-themed meal from the restaurant of their choice on April 25, with the exception of Wild Origins, which will deliver a Cook-Along with Chef Paul Moran meal kit for four. Tickets are available now but, as each restaurant has a limited number of meals for sale, it is advised to order as early as possible to secure your first choice! As an added bonus, all guests will receive a Sakura at Home gift from event sponsor McMillan LLP.

The virtual portion of Sakura at Home will feature:

  • A performance by Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra music director and conductor Ken Hsieh on Vancouver House’s flying Fazioli piano;
  • Bard on the Beach Artistic Director Christopher Gaze reading winning poems from the 2020 Haiku Invitational
  • The world premiere of In Full Bloom, a short film by Patrick Weir of Peacemaker Filmworks. Following the film, Patrick will describe how he used drones to capture Vancouver coming into bloom this Spring, bringing the calming beauty of the cherry blossoms into everyone’s homes to make spring even more memorable.

Thinking ahead, Darnell Stager of Salmon n’ Bannock said, “these flowers feed our spirit and fill our heart with hope and promise…feed your spirit and body with the variety of the seasonal selection of flavors and textures being showcased at Sakura at Home.
