Scout Magazine | April 12, 2018
Tofino, BC | Now that spring is properly here, it’s time to experience Vancouver Island’s “boat to table” food culture at the 8th annual Feast Tofino festival. From April 20th to May 6th, the laid-back surf town of Tofino goes gastronomic with a series of tastings and dinners at various locations.
“Feast Tofino is a celebration of our local, sustainable fisheries. For three weeks in the Spring, join us for a series of collaborative food events featuring Tofino’s internationally acclaimed culinary community including our local chefs, restaurants, fishermen, foragers, and farmers. We like to celebrate our ‘ boat-to-table’ food culture and great West Coast times.”
The 2018 Feast Tofino calendar delivers something for every meal, mood and budget, from an elegant caviar brunch with bubbly, to casual menus with happy hour features, a West Coast beach BBQ, and multi-course dinners. Events will go down at some of the the town’s best food and beverage establishments, but also on beaches, and on docks – the aim of the festival, after all, is to highlight the ingredients, people and surroundings that make Tofino so amazingly delicious.
Feast Tofino’s sensational 6-course, 100-seat Long Table Dinner is making its return for the third year running. This year’s dinner will be helmed by visiting talent Chef Lynn Crawford & Chef Lora Kirk along with six stellar local chefs: Tim May (Red Can Gourmet), Robbie Elliot (Shelter), Lisa Ahier (SoBo), Paul Moran (Tofino Resort + Marina), Warren Barr (The Pointe at the Wickaninnish Inn) and Nick Nutting (Wolf in the Fog).
