Saturday May 9, 2009 | 12pm -3pm @ False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf
The Spot Prawn season opens on Friday May 8th, and the Chefs’ Table Society will celebrate the launch of the season with the 3rd Annual Spot Prawn Festival.
The Spot Prawn Festival is on Saturday May 9th, 2009 from 12pm – 3pm @ False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf. Join us for a community & child-friendly launch event at False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf to greet the arrival of the season’s first spot prawn run as local fishermen return to the wharf with their catch. Meet some of Vancouver’s top chefs as they prepare spot prawn recipes from 12pm – 3pm, and cooking demonstrations at Granville Island at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on May 9th, 10th and 16th.
The Spot Prawn season runs for 8 weeks, with the boats arriving after 1pm daily. The annual Spot Prawn Festival will provide another local, fresh and sustainable ingredient for our restaurant chefs and home cooks to enjoy. The Chefs’ Table Society encourages local chefs and restaurants to buy spot prawns during the eight week season, and invites the public to participate by purchasing spot prawns directly from the docks or from participating restaurants.
