While September brings some sadness with the close of summer, it’s also a glorious time to celebrate the harvest of local farms. Every year, I look forward to FarmFolk CityFolk’s Metro Vancouver Feast of Fields (September 11, 2016).

The event is a roving gourmet’s paradise that invites attendees to appreciate good food and libations, as well as the fabulous chefs and farmers in the region. It’s a wondrous end of summer date for those who share an appreciation for local, sustainable food.

You’ve heard of “farm to table” dining.  This is more like “table to farm.”

Feast of Fields – the event where a working farm becomes your smorgasbord for the day – returns to Metro Vancouver on Sept. 7.  Dozens of top chefs, winemakers, brewers, growers and makers will be setting up shop at Delta’s Wellbrook Farm, a 55-acre organic blueberry spread.

Guests, armed with a wine glass and a linen napkin, wander from tent to tent, sampling local produce and cheeses, beer and wine, and prepared dishes from literally dozens of Vancouver-area restaurants.  The idea is to get an education in where real food comes from, while also stuffing your face with some of the best food the region has to offer.  At $95, tickets aren’t cheap, but the event is all-you-can-eat and proceeds go to supporting the local food movement. (Kids 5-19 are only $15; under 5 is free.)

The setting is half the charm. Continue reading:

Food, Wine and Farms: Feast of Fields – Aug. 29

Can food bring city folk and farm folk closer together?  That’s the idea behind the annual Feast of Fields, a unique event held in the Lower Mainland and other locations.   Feast of Fields brings together chefs, winemakers and brewers, restaurateurs,  farmers and plain-old consumers and puts them all on a local farm for a day of eating, drinking and learning more about where real food comes from.

This year’s Feast of Fields will be on Sunday, Aug. 29, from 1-5pm at Wellbrook Winery on the Bremner Farm in Delta (You might recognize the Bremner name from its juices made from local blueberries and cranberries).  Armed with only a wine glass and a linen napkin, guests wander amid tents set up around the farm, sampling local produce, cheeses and meats, delicious prepared foods from local restaurants and artisan wines and beers.
