Written By Jill Van Gyn Folks / Food People / Interesting Locals Jan 17, 2018 EAT TALKS: “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” on Feb 5 SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestTHE STORIES WE TELL ABOUT OURSELVES AND ABOUT THE FOOD WE LOVE gives meaning to our history and to the things we value most. There is always one memory or one experience that we fall back on when we think about the best thing we ever ate. It might not have been a dish found in a Michelin-starred restaurant or crafted by the hands of the world’s finest chef but perhaps was found in our childhood kitchen, or during a revelatory experience eating abroad, maybe it was just a treasured morsel pulled from our local shores. Food and memory are deeply connected and some of our fondest and most precious memories are preserved in the food that has brought context to our lives.“The Best Thing I Ever Ate” will take place at Northern Quarter in Victoria and will feature noted speakers from the local food and hospitality industry along with some great food and drink.Included in the ticket price are an appetizer plate and your first drink (supplied by our generous sponsors: Desert Hills Estate Winery, Tod Creek Craft Ciders, and Driftwood Brewery).THE SPEAKERS Megan Bermand (Tulip Café) Jennifer Danter ( Food Stylist) Cliff Leir (Agrius/Fol Epi) Andrew Mavor (Hanks) Daisy Orser (The Root Cellar) Jill Van Gyn (MC & EAT Talks Host) Arthur Webb (Bao) Peter Zambri (Zambri’s)NOTE: DOORS OPEN AT 6 PM – EAT TALKS BEGINS AT 7 PM.Northern Quarter will be offering a limited menu for those who wish to eat dinner before the show.CLICK FOR INFO & TICKETS SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Jill Van Gyn ...
