Out of stock
Reconnecting people with the importance of embracing local, organic and sustainable food comes into clear focus when Chef David Gunawan of Farmer’s Apprentice and Nourish Owner, Dan Cheung, team up to present a one-night-only ‘Eat. Learn. Gather.’ event at Nourish, 3742 West 10th Ave. on Saturday, March 4 at 6 p.m.
Limited to just 24 tickets, the event will afford guests a unique opportunity to interact with Gunawan as he demonstrates each dish prepared during the four-course dinner in a rustic and intimate chef’s-table setting at the Point Grey cooking school and café.
Much like the ingredients delivered to its door fresh daily at Farmer’s Apprentice, the four-course ‘Eat. Learn. Gather.’ menu will be informed by the seasonality for which the South Granville farm-to-table restaurant has become known.

About David Gunawan:

His culinary approach is dictated by whatever fresh produce arrives at his door from local farmers each day. In 2016, Gunawan was named Chef of the Year at the annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.
About Project Chef:
Cook Healthy Edible Food is an experiential, curriculum-based school program aimed at children in kindergarten to grade seven that teaches students about healthy food: where it comes from, what it tastes like, how to prepare it and how to enjoy sharing it around a table. Designed to immerse children in the process of cooking from preparation to clean-up, children gain knowledge about food; they discover the pleasure and satisfaction in creating meals for themselves and they develop the skills so that they can apply their new-found knowledge and abilities in making healthy food choices at home.
