2015 Araxi Long Table Series
Join us at Pemberton's scenic North Arm Farm for an unforgettable dining experience on Sunday, September 5. The event is catered by Araxi Restaurant and it's Head Chef James Walt and his staff. The event was born out of the friendship between James Walt and North Arm Farm owner Jordan Sturdy. Chef James Walt had been a long time customer of the local farm, buying his produce for Araxi from the farm for years. An innovator of the 'farm to table' movement Walt wished to create an event where his guests could see, touch and taste where their food came from. Thus, the Araxi Long Tables series was created.
Before the meal guests will have a chance to meet the farmers and suppliers, and tour the organic fields where, just hours before, farmers pick the produce next to the outdoor kitchen.
The ‘Long Table Series’ name comes from the continuous long table in which dinner is served on. The event is held outdoors in the North Arm Farm fields, steps away from the produce fields where your dinner is picked. North Arm Farm also has the fantastic honour of being located at the base of the stunning Mount Currie Mountain while providing guests with an amazing meal and view.
When: Saturday, September 5 - 3 PM
Where: North Arm Farm, located in Pemberton (25 minutes north of Whistler)
Cost: $159 - tickets can be purchased by phone 604.932.4540 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
About the Meal
James Walt and his staff will prepare a 4-course meal that showcases his internationally recognized farm to table creations. The meal will be cooked on site at the farm’s outdoor kitchen. The produce will be provided by North Arm Farm while the meats will be sourced locally - no further than 100 KM from the farm as per Walt's strict guidelines. This could include beef or poultry from 15 minutes up the Pemberton Meadows or salmon caught from the Squamish corridor 30KM away from Whistler. The meal will also be paired with wines chosen by Araxi Wine Director Samantha Rahn, winner of the 2013 Sommelier of the Year at the Vancouver International Wine Festival. Service will be orchestrated by long-time restaurant director Neil Henderson who will detail each course and its origins.
