Written By Guest Writer Causes / Folks / Winemaker Dinners Nov 2, 2011 Have Dinner with David Suzuki SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestNovember 2, 2011. Vancouver, BC. On Thursday, November 10th, C Restaurant is throwing a dinner hosted by sustainability titan David Suzuki. The evening is a fundraiser for the David Suzuki Foundation and C’s burgeoning not-for-profit, the C Blue Foundation, a grassroots initiative by Harry Kambolis and Chef Robert Clark to raise essential funds to protect lakes, rivers, streams, beaches and oceans.The David Suzuki Foundation and C Restaurant collaboration has netted an exceptional partner, the Lake Babine First Nation. Back when Rome was a mere village, the Lake Babine people operated traditional salmon weirs on their lake and river, sustainably harvesting hundreds of thousands of sockeye a year. Tragically, their traditional fishery was extinguished in 1906 by the Canadian government. It devastated an entire way of life. This past summer, the Nation partnered with the Skeena Wild Conservation Trust, Raincoast Trading of Vancouver, and RiverWild Seafoods of Terrace to recreate their traditional sustainable fishery.All Lake Babine Nation sockeye are selectively harvested. The fishery targets the one abundant sockeye stock on the Skeena, avoiding the numerous genetically distinct Skeena salmon stocks that remain depressed. Chef Lee’s menu will feature the Nation’s sockeye prominently.“We are honoured to serve the salmon caught with great care and pride by the Lake Babine Nation,” says Kambolis. “The rebirth of their fishery is monumental and their story and achievements are synergistic with the mandate and dreams of our new foundation.”Also a featured player at the dinner: Summerhill Pyramid Winery. Ezra Cipes of the Kelowna winery and C sommelier Kim Cyr will compose the wine pairings to complement Chef Lee’s menu. About 80% of the total grapes used in Summerhill’s production are certified organic, and the rest are in a transitional organic status on their way to being certified.To reserve your seat at this multi-course dinner with wine pairings, please telephone the restaurant at 604-681-1164 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Suzuki” in the subject line.
