British Columbia’s most compelling and ambitious al fresco dining experiences – the 2015 Araxi Longtable Dinner Series – will be held on Monday, August 3rd and Saturday, September 5th in Vancouver and Pemberton, respectively. This year, as a convenience to guests, the dinners will be staged on the BC Day and Labour Day long weekends.
Set in two striking outdoor settings, award-winning Executive Chef James Walt will craft exclusive four-course menus that showcase his internationally recognized farm-to-table dishes. With wine pairings by Samantha Rahn, 2013 Sommelier of the Year, and service orchestrated by renowned Restaurant Director Neil Henderson, the Longtable Dinners salute both Araxi’s culinary provenance and it’s future.

The Vancouver dinner will once again be staged at ‘Bard on the Beach’ in Vanier Park. This dinner will welcome 250 guests to a dramatic urban setting, and Chef Walt will be supported by his Vancouver-based Toptable Group colleagues, chefs Frank Pabst of Blue Water Cafe, Andrew Richardson of CinCin Ristorante, Quang Dang of West Restaurant, and Thierry Busset of Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie and Cafe.
The Pemberton Longtable Dinner will be the longest table staged at North Arm Farm to date. Chef Walt’s menu embraces the extraordinary local ingredients, harvested at the peak of the season, and guests will have the opportunity to meet the farmers and suppliers, and tour the organic fields where, just hours before, farmers pick the produce next to the outdoor kitchen.
