12 Months of BC Debuts May 8th, 2009
BC’s bounty gets the spotlight all year long at Fuel Restaurant. Starting May 2009, Chef Robert Belcham and his culinary crew are presenting the best that BC has to offer, and it’s all local, seasonal and sustainable. 12 Months of BC opens on Friday, May 8th, 2009 and will run all year long with fresh new features, menus & special dinners happening every month.
12 Months of BC kicks off with the Spot Prawn festival, where ten lucky Fuel guests will be the first to indulge in one of BC’s most sought after seafood treasures featuring local prawns from Steve Johansen of Organic Ocean. Guests will be winners drawn from those who enter to attend via email or bill fold inserts, and proceeds from each of the ten $85 tickets will be donated to the Spanish Banks Creek Restoration Project. Their ultimate reward: a Spot Prawn feast at the Fuel kitchen bar paired with specialty cask-brewed R&B beer—from BC, of course.
Fuel will have a Spot Prawn boil at the bar starting May 9th and every Saturday for the duration of the eight week season. With only 12 coveted bar seats available, diners must reserve for the early (5:30pm) or late (8:00pm) seating to enjoy the special boil menu ($85 per person).
This sumptuous kick-off is just the start. 12 Months of BC will be celebrated every month at Fuel, with a special ingredient highlighted each month. “It’s a feast for all,” says Chef Belcham, “Specially prepared from all the best ingredients we can source from our amazing province. This menu is like a culinary tour of everything foodies love about BC.” Here’s a taste of what’s coming up:
~June: Hand raised lamb with accompaniments from the forest
~July: Raspberry dessert features
~August: Chilliwack Corn and Chef Belcham’s famous chilled corn soup
