Join us this Saturday August 26, 2023 from 9-1 for an event that will delight your senses. We have the North Vancouver Island Culinary Association (NVICA) joining us for a Food Fest: Back to Basics- Summer Edition.

As part of our commitment to promote, support and educate about local agriculture, CVFM and NVICA are hosting an information session today. Rather than just cooking and serving CVFM vendor products the chefs will be sharing their wealth of knowledge for menu planning, cost-cutting, in-season buying making the best use of our local products. The shift in focus has been brought forward in response to the rising costs of food and the inability of some of our most vulnerable households to eat healthy.

The Chefs will be cooking up a variety of in-season dishes including Cristy Vegetable Fritters, Ratatouille, and Gazpacho.  You can find the recipes below.

Quick and Crispy Vegetable Fritters

Traditional Ratatouille

Authentic Gazpacho

Come for the freshness and stay for the fun!
