Supplier Profile: North Arm Farm
September 25, 2014
In our kitchen we have committed to using only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. We take pride in supporting regional vendors. In doing so we have the ability to offer food that you can trust. North Arm Farm is one of our main resources in providing the colorful, nutritious vegetables that we serve to our guests every day.
Candy Cane Beets
North Arm is a 60-acre family owned and run farm located just 40km outside Whistler. Jordan and Trish Sturdy started the farm in 1995 and since then have brought on their children, Emma and Thea, to assist with operations. The farm practices organic methodology and is certified by the Pacific Agricultural Certification Society. North Arm hosts seasonal ‘You Pick’ walks that allow you to freely walk anywhere on the farm and see what they grow, and how they grow it, while picking your own berries, flowers, and pumpkins – that is transparency you can trust!
Fairy Tale Squash
We proudly serve Walla Walla onions, fairy tale squash, Jerusalem artichokes, candy cane beets, purple carrots, purple beets and Thumbelina carrots from North Arm Farm. It is the quality in these wholesome vegetables that assist in bringing flavour to the plates we serve.
Barley and the Beast: Brewery Dinner
September 8, 2014
The Whistler Village Beer Festival kicks off this weekend, and everyone is getting excited to experience over 200 beers from 62 breweries, and an action packed schedule of events. At Grill & Vine we’re excited to host our very first brewery dinner with Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers called Barley and the Beast. We’ve designed a delicious 5-course menu with carefully selected beer pairings, served at an intimate Chef’s table outdoors.
Recipe: Grape Bruschetta
August 18, 2014
Bruschetta is a classic Italian recipe with many variations. After seeing how much our guests love the maple-glazed grapes we incorporate into our Crispy Quail & Waffle appetizer, we took the next step to create this recipe. It has a remarkably well-balanced flavour of sweet and savory that is perfect for summer.
Wine @ The Vine Summer Series: Al Fresco
August 5, 2014
Summer in Whistler seems endless this year. In July the weather inspired us to channel Spanish influence in our kitchen, and the continued warm summer nights are now reminding us of Italy. So, what better way to take advantage of this time than an al fresco dinner?
