Have you ever wanted to go off on an Anthony Bourdain–style culinary tour of the world? Well, if you haven’t done it yet, we invite you to join us for the next best thing—an evening of delicious food and meaningful stories with someone who has.

We are super excited to announce that we will be hosting a special wine and food long-table dinner with chef Aman Dosanj of the The Paisley Notebook 'edible adventures' blog. On Sunday July 16th 7pm, she is making a special trip down from her home in Kelowna to our little shop in Kitsilano. This is an event that we’ve been planning for a while, and our theme is something that is meaningful to us both. It is Family. 

From the moment we heard about her eight month culinary journey last year, we followed her adventures as she shared her experiences. Aman is someone who has inspired our family with her charitable spirit, her passion towards food and her travel stories. We love her mission statement that she posted just before she left:

“So, let the discovery begin. I’m off to New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Thailand, Cambodia, Athens, Copenhagen, London, Italy and New York. It’s time to think, dream, grow and create, and to literally eat the world.”

But Aman is not just a foodie traveler. She also has received acclaim for her work on the other side of the swinging kitchen doors. Back in 2009, Aman and her family opened up Kelowna’s first farm-to-table Indian restaurant. And a big part of their success was based on developing close working relationships with the local farmers and wine producers that they featured in their dining room.

After finishing her trip, Aman has held sell-out 'Say It Like You Eat It' pop-up dinners in the Okanagan. These are inspired by her travels, the people she has met and featured on her 'Food Memory Project'. We are so honoured to have her come to the wine shop to do her first pop-up dinner in Vancouver.

Storytelling will be a big part of our evening together. We feel that we are storytellers for the wineries and the winemakers we are passionate about, and Aman, as you can tell from her blog, loves to tell stories with food. It’s that connection with storytelling and family that we want to celebrate, and we hope that you will join us as we eat and drink, and toast the families who work and create together.

For our event, Aman will be bringing farm fresh produce from the Okanagan, as well as using seasonal ingredients from our local producers. Her four course, Indian-inspired meal will be inspired by her 'food memory project' from her travels around the world. And of course, there will be wine! We are already having fun exploring the wines to pair with the food. Our focus will be family wineries from both local and international producers.

Proceeds from this event will go to Project Chef, as chosen by a young member of our wine shop family, 8 year old foodie, Chase! Project Chef is a local non-profit that is all about reconnecting kids with the age-old human traditions of sourcing, understanding, preparing and enjoying real food. 

This event will family long-table style. It will be a casual yet intimate setting. It also means that, thanks to our cozy quarters, space is limited, so please act soon to secure your spot(s) by purchasing your ticket with the provided link.

We hope you will join us for what we are sure will be one of our highlight tastings of the year.
