FEATURING FARMERS APPRENTICE & ROBIN RIDGE WINERY.
We are really excited to let you in on the planning and launching of our latest collaborative dinner series with Klippers Organic Farm!
We will co host several long table dinners in The Similkameen Valley over the summer featuring chefs from the Vancouver area. Each chef will cook a meal using ingredients from the farm, paired with a local winery.
The Similkameen Valley is an up and coming destination area, with stunning scenery, a number of award winning wineries, and an abundance of great organic produce. We are super excited to pair up with The Farmer's Apprentice for this dinner! Their restaurant has trail blazed the way in Vancouver making fine dining techniques both affordable and approachable.
