June 25, 2016: Food Festival and Annual Fundraiser at the UBC Farm

Joy of Feeding 2016

This unique inter-generational, international food festival and annual fundraiser for UBC Farm celebrates home-cooked dishes from around the world. Vij’s, Terra Breads, the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts and UBC Food Services bring together fifteen home cooks of different cultural backgrounds—from Egypt to Switzerland to Turkey and beyond—to offer a taste of their favourite recipes. Showcasing culinary traditions from around the world, Joy of Feeding was created by Chef Meeru Dhalwala of Vij’s and Rangoli restaurants to celebrate whole foods, culture and cooking.

Taste the world on a culinary tour while basking in the beauty of UBC Farm, a 60 hectare living laboratory for sustainable food systems and the only certified organic farm in the City of Vancouver. Learn about the home cooks’ cultures and connect with your community in supporting local sustainable food sources. Kick up your heels to music, tour the UBC Farm, buy fresh organic produce and check out interactive booths featuring children’s activities and local culinary culture. For the 19 and over crowd, enjoy local craft beer from Bomber Brewing or a refreshing summer sip from VQA Sandhill Estate Vineyard, available for purchase. Each attendee will receive a recipe book filled with all the dishes you enjoyed so you can recreate your favourites at home with friends and family.
