Orange County Dinner


In conjunction with the Orange County video installation at Centre A Gallery in Vancouver, I hosted an intimate curated dinner in the gallery on March 8, 2014. Urban planner Andy Yan gave an insightful talk on the history of challenges of land ownership for the Chinese in Vancouver and the current spectre of Chinese money in the real estate market; and poet Gerry Shikatani who spoke eloquently about food, culture, and assumed taste. Thematic local cuisine was prepared and presented by Chefs Wesley Young (executive chef of Wildebeest) and Jacob Deacon-Evans (Farmer’s Apprentice). A delicious and scintillating evening of taste and exchange; it went late.
