On Monday July 12, 2010, The Chefs’ Table Society of BC and the Vancity Theatre will kick off Cinema to Savour, the most delicious film festival to ever hit Vancouver screens. Guests will enjoy Italian fare prepared by one of Canada's top chefs, Pino Posteraro of Cioppino’s Mediterranean Grill, and get a taste of his talents after supping from Campbell Scott's foodie classic, Big Night, starring Stanley Tucci and Tony Shalhoub.
Each ‘Cinema to Savour’ movie night showcases the food of a local celebrity chef who has found inspiration in the film being presented. Big Night is the first film in the four-part series; subsequent events run in the Fall, Winter and Spring. Pino Posteraro will share with the audience why he selected the film and will prepare and serve Italian-inspired bites together with local culinary giant John Bishop. Their food will be paired with wines from Burrow, Luongo & Associates, local craft beer from R&B Brewing Co., and finished with Caffe Artigiano coffee and fabulous biscotti provided by Terra Breads.
Poised to attract a wide audience, Cinema to Savour is a perfect way for foodies and movie buffs to engage with Vancouver’s top chefs and restaurant industry leaders.
Cinema to Savour takes place on Monday, July 12th at 7pm. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased through the Vancity Theatre at www.viff.org. Tickets include a Vancouver Cooks 2 cookbook, film viewing, food, beverages and chef/audience discussion.
Event proceeds will benefit The Chefs’ Table Society of BC and the Vancity Theatre.
