The EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival is just around the corner for their 11th year. Returning to BC Place Stadium, the edible event brings restaurants, bakers, growers, distributors, and artisans from not only the Lower Mainland but around BC, Canada and the world.
Of course, the Food Network Celebrity Stage is back with a number of familiar faces: Spice Goddess Bal Arneson, pastry chef Anna Olson from Bake with Anna Olson, Montreal-based chef Chuck Hughes from Chuck’s Week Off, and Rob Feenie — winner of Iron Chef: America and Food Concept Architect for Cactus Club Restaurants. If you didn’t see them last year, they’ll be here this time.
Those looking for gluten-free options can now enjoy EAT! Vancouver as there will be vendors on hand to demo products and solutions for those who suffer from allergies.
