YES- you read that right.
Remember when I went on that epic foodie adventure to Vancouver two months ago?

I was working with Tourism Vancouver and we had the most amazing time eating the best seafood, drinking BC wine, hiking and exploring the beautiful city through my tastebuds. Vancouver is a short 2-hour flight from SF (3hrs from LA) which makes it an easy get-away for us to visit any time of year.
Btw… Vancouver ranked 12th in Conde Nast Traveler’s World’s Best Food Cities awards and named among the Top 10 dining cities in the world by Food and Wine magazine.
No big deal.
Now let’s talk about this giveaway I have in store for one of YOU lucky Cyn Eats readers:
I’m giving away 2 tickets to the Vancouver X San Francisco World Chef Exchange Dinneron Wednesday Sept 19th at Barcino in Hayes Valley. The winner will also get the BC wine pairing option (total prize value $300). Also, anyone in attendance at this dinner will get a chance to win a free trip to Vancouver during the Dine Out Food Festival.
This is a multi-course collaboration dinner between Chef Chris Whittaker (representing Vancouver) and Chef Ryan McIlraith (from San Francisco). Fun fact: Chef Ryan is originally from Vancouver and Chris and Ryan are longtime friends who have cooked together at a hotels and restaurants in the past!
The goal for this dinner is to showcase a culinary mash up between flavors, ingredients and dining sensibilities of British Columbia, California and Spain.
You get 5 courses (plus dessert) featuring sablefish croquette (served as a canape), wild salmon tartar and a slow-roasted bison filet. (drools)
Tickets are $110 per person and you can buy them HERE if you want to secure your spot at dinner. ALSO, everyone will leave with a special gift from Vancouver World Chef Exchange. (Pssst… It’s something F&B related that you will love and totally use!)
