What’s Good This Week – Easter Weekend Special

What To Do in Vancouver for Easter Weekend?

Folks I’ve been so wrapped up in wedding thingies and my big weight loss challenge that I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head chopped off! AND yes, they sadly do that and really, so do I. I don’t even think I told you I won the challenge, but more about that later. However, I can’t let Easter go by without at least a couple suggestions as I believe in fully celebrating each and every holiday. It’s something I got from my mother, who went out of her way to make my sister feel loved and festive during each season. Thanks for all those little (and big) gifts and for instilling that spirit in us!

I’ll be celebrating this weekend again, as for one it’s my bachelorette party (can’t wait) and for two Easter. Since I can’t invite you all to the girls day/night, you’ll have to make do with some Easter events that I can.rocky

A Valentine’s Day Menu for the Chocoholic at Rocky Mountain Flatbread

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Suggestion

Rocky Mountain Flatbread and Koko Monk Chocolates are delighted to present our second annual Valentine’s Day Menu for the Chocoholic featuring raw chocolate and Rocky Mountain Flatbread favourites.

Rocky Mountain Flatbread’s Chef Oliver Zulauf has created a delicious three-course menu for Valentine’s Day that offers over 75 pizza and pasta combinations to choose from. Each course is paired with a handmade raw chocolate from Koko Monk Chocolates.

Wake up your palate with La Petite Amour – a lemongrass, lime and sunny mango raw chocolate – paired with your choice of crisp fresh salad (fig & goat cheese, basil & blackberry, or fresh herb salad).

When you add a taste of the Tuscan Blues – a lavender infused raw chocolate – and enjoy a hand crafted Traditional Flatbread pizza or pasta dish – you’ll believe life really is a box of chocolates.

Rekindle that old flame with a Smoking Heart – that is, a double smoked applewood and 12-year-old scotch raw chocolate fusion – along with Rocky Mountain Flatbread’s signature double chocolate brownie with house made vanilla ice cream (or gluten free baked cheese cake with toasted coconut crust).​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Eat, Grow, Love Long Table Events at Rocky Mountain Flatbread

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Showcases Local Artisans 

One of my favourite places to lunch at is Rocky Mountain Flatbread as I am massively addicted to their shrimp sandwich; juicy Ocean Wise shrimp, sunflower sprouts, and tomatoes on their house made bread. I also love the frozen pizzas for a quick meal at home, and the pasta and pizza is excellent. Everything is made from scratch with local and well thought out ingredients, and they are super concerned about being green and looking after their diners as well as the environment.

This spring they’ve partnered up with local artisan food providers to bring you not only a nourishing and delightful meal, but also some very cool information about what’s going on food-wise in our community.

First up they presented “All about Mushrooms”, a chance to watch a cooking demo with their chef, Chef Oliver, learn all about the health benefits of eating mushrooms with Brendan Young, Holistic Registered Nutritionist, and taste their new seasonal menu items featuring mushrooms and we were lucky to attend! We left with some dried mushrooms and I’ve got plans for way more mushrooms in my meals now. I had no idea just how good they are for you.

Rocky Mountain Flatbread, “Earth Bites” for Earth Week

The Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company are inviting their diners and the community to attend fun filled “Earth Bite” Workshops where you can  learn to grow and create mouth watering recipes with the wonder veggie Kale and create “Potato fusion kits” in celebration of Earth Week.

“Our team is teaching hundreds of students in local schools at this time of year how to grow and cook with spinach, snap peas, potatoes, kale, chard and more.  So it just made sense to extend this offering to our diners for Earth Day.”  Says Suzanne Fielden co-founder of Rocky Mountain Flatbread & Rocky Mountain Flatbread Education Society.

“Growing your own food is not only tasty but it is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint as well as increase the nutrients you get from your veggies.  Did you know our veggies usually travel over 2 500 miles before they get to our plate and on their travels they lose more than 50% of their vitamins and nutrients?”

The “Earth Bite” Workshop Line Up:

Their “Kale Bomb Workshop” will be led by “Kale Evangelist” & author of “The Book of Kale,” Sharon Hanna.  The workshop will be held April 18th, 5.30 – 6.30 pm  at Rocky Mountain Flatbread, Main Street.  Sharon will be showing people how to create “Kale Bombs” to grow wild kale; giving away kale transplants; and sharing top tips on how to grow & create mouth watering recipes with Kale.  Workshops are $10 a person & all proceeds will go to Rocky Mountain Flatbread Education Society teaching youth how to grow their own food and create seasonal snacks with food they grow.

Their “Potato Fusion Workshop” will be led by the folk at The World In A Garden.  The workshops will be held on Earth Day, April 22nd, 4.30 – 5.30 pm at Rocky Mountain Flatbread’s Kits and Main Street locations.  The team will help participants plant their own organic potatoes in burlap sacs with salad greens on the top.  They can then take their burlap sacs home and watch their potatoes and greens grow!  Perfect for patios & yards.  Workshops are $20 a person and all proceeds will go to The World In A Garden and Project Somos.  An eco-village for abandoned children in Guatemala.

During “Earth Bite Workshops” their restaurants will also be featuring local organic potatoes and kale on their daily flatbread pizza and pastas specials – demonstrating how easy and delicious it can be to incorporate local seasonal produce into everyday dishes.

The Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. is a progressively-minded pizzeria featuring all-natural, handcrafted cuisine using lots of local & seasonal  produce at its Vancouver locations in Kitsilano (1876 W. 1st Ave.) & Main Street (4855 Main Street) and Canmore, Alberta. Organic ingredients, in-house sustainability programs, environmental alliances and community outreach initiatives are all part of normal operations for this now-franchising entrepreneurial success story.
