2nd year in a row, I was invited as the plus one of Areta (@foodgressing) to the annual Araxi Longtable Dinner. As one of BC’s most highly-anticipated outdoor farm-to-table dining experiences, the dinner impressed 250+ diners with amazing food and picturesque surroundings.
The long table is set at the base of Mount Currie on North Arm Farm in Pemberton, with magnificent mountains and lively summer green as a perfect backdrop.
THE OUTDOOR KITCHEN
The 4-course dinner was created by executive chef James Walt and chef Jorge Muñoz-Santos featuring the most amazing local ingredients and prepared by the amazing team from the sister restaurants of Top Table Groups in Whistler. Renowned Restaurant Director Neil Henderson was running the event.
A pre-dinner reception with live music and canapes. Some of the best bartenders and sommelier in Whistler are here serving delicious cocktails and premium local wines.
