Description


On Saturday May 12, 2018, join the Chefs' Table Society of British Columbia for a celebration of an iconic BC product at the 12th Annual Spot Prawn Festival.

This year, the Chefs' Table Society's Spot Prawn Festival has reinvented itself, and you now have THREE ways to enjoy it:

  1. FREE – access to the docks, view cooking demos and more

  2. $10 – Spot Prawn Chowder – to go if you want!

  3. $60 – Spot Prawn Brunch – grazing style with a tasting menu of 6 delicious spot prawn dishes

The same family-friendly festival remains with live cooking demos with some of Vancouver's top chefs! Fun for the kids! Live music! And more!

While the festival is free, in order to enjoy any of the delicious food prepared by our chefs, tickets are required.

This is the Chefs' Table Society's main fundraising event so it can continue to provide education, mentorship and sustainability initiatives across the province.

SPOT PRAWN CHOWDER

NEW THIS YEAR! instead of the traditional boil, a delicious bowl of Spot Prawn Chowder served with bread from Terra Bread.

Our chowder, created by chefs, is gluten free and lactose free but it is full of flavour!!!

Ticket for the chowder is $10.00 a bowl (plus tax and service) and if you want, you can take it to go!

NO LONG WAIT!!! Choose to enjoy your Spot Prawn Chowder in one of the following time slots:

  • 11 am to 12 pm (noon)
  • 12 pm (noon) to 1 pm
  • 1 pm to 2 pm
  • 2 pm to 3 pm

The time, clearly indicated on your ticket, should be respected! Please note that showing up early for your time will not give you earlier access and that showing up late might make you wait longer.

SPOT PRAWN FESTIVAL BRUNCH

Also new this year! A wonderful idea for Mother's Day weekend: a brunch featuring a tasting menu with 6 delicious spot prawn dishes showcasing the many ways this delicacy can be served.

Dishes will be prepared some of BC’s finest chefs, a nice way to sample various creations and for you to say hello to the chefs as you move between the food stations and savour samples of wine from Evolve Cellars and beer from Moody Ales, as well as coffee from Mogiana Coffee.

Two services are available:

11:30 am to 1 pm

1:30 pm to 3 pm

Ticket for the brunch is $60.00 per person (plus tax and service fee) and includes a delicious tasting menu consisting of six spot prawn dishes, wine and beer samples, bread from Terra Breads, and a coffee and treat to end your meal.
