The Araxi Longtable Dinners are British Columbia’s most exciting al fresco dining experiences. Staged at North Arm Farm in Pemberton, Lost Lake in Whistler and Vanier Park in Vancouver in past summers, these sold-out events embrace our extraordinary local ingredients picked at the peak of the season. Guests have the opportunity to meet the suppliers who raise the produce, and at North Arm Farm, tour the organic fields where, only hours earlier, the ingredients were harvested just steps away from the outdoor kitchen.
Award-winning executive chef James Walt crafts exclusive four-course menus that showcase his internationally recognized farm-to-table creations, with wine pairings by Araxi wine director Samantha Rahn, 2013 Sommelier of the Year, and service orchestrated by renowned restaurant director Neil Henderson. New in 2014, the inaugural Longtable Dinner in Vancouver saw Chef James Walt welcome his Vancouver-based Toptable Group counterparts Andrew Richardson from CinCin, Frank Pabst from Blue Water Cafe, Quang Dang from West, and Thierry Busset from Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie and Cafe for guest appearances.
The Longtable dinners sell out quickly, and plans are already in the works for the 2015 series. To be added to our mailing list, please email us indicating your interest.
