Edible Canada Chef Tom Lee is Welcomed as Guest Chef at BC Place Stadium
Edible Canada’s own Chef Tom Lee was chosen by BC Place Stadium, Centerplate and Chef Ryan Stone to be the second guest chef featured on the suites menu for the 2012 season. From August 15th until September 29th BC Place offers suite holders a menu featuring bacon themed dishes created by Chef Lee. As an added bonus, suite holders who order from these menus will be placed in a draw to win a $250 gift certificate for Edible Canada at the Market.
Chef Lee’s menus change with the season and feature products from vibrant aisles at the market on Granville Island. Our brand new Coast to Coast – A Canadian Tribute to Bacon menu at our take-out window caught the eye of Chef Ryan Stone, and Lee was asked to share some of his popular bacon dishes with BC Place. Chef Ryan noted that he is “a big fan of your concept at Edible Canada, and am committed to utilizing and promoting local, sustainable products as much as possible at the stadium.”
The unprecedented popularity of the Tribute to Bacon window is based on the current global infatuation with bacon. All of the dishes highlight culinary traditions and fresh ingredients from here to Halifax with regionally inspired bacon-themed dishes. Selected items at BC Place include Bacon & Duck Rillette Poutine Canadian cheese curds, caramelized onions; BLLT – Bacon, Lettuce, Lobster & Tomato Bacon aioli, heirloom tomatoes, butter lettuce, brioche roll; and the Bacon Dessert Trio featuring Kitchening & Co. salted bacon macaroons, Fraser Valley Gourmet bacon almond butter crunch, and bacon ice cream with maple drizzle. By highlighting local culinary artisans in our menu selections, we hope to give these talented producers the widespread attention they deserve.
Chef Tom Lee’s Guest Chef Menu at BC Place Suites will be available for the following events:
Saturday, September 8, 1pm – Lions vs. Montreal
Saturday, September 15, 4pm – Lions vs. Toronto
Sunday, September 23, 4:30pm – Whitecaps vs Colorado
