Richard Wolak, food writer and founder of both Vancouver Foodster and Taste and Sip Magazine has just launched his latest project: Food Talks. This new series of monthly (for now) social gatherings brings together five speakers of different backgrounds and roles from within the food community in and around Vancouver.

Richard’s new social gathering is more than hearing great people talk about their passion. It’s also a chance for the community to meet and mingle over delicious appetizers presented by the hosting restaurant/event space while sipping on wine poured by a different featured winery at each event.

A Q&A will follow each of the talks, allowing participants to benefit from a leading panel of experts. The evening will end with everyone taking home a sweet treat from one of Vancouver’s local bakeries.
 
The Food Talks series kicks off on June 5 with these five well-known food experts:
Chef Trevor Bird – Top Chef Canada Competitor and Chef/Owner Fable Kitchen
Stephanie Yuen – Food Writer and “East Meets West” Author
Mike McDermid – Ocean Wise Manager at the Vancouver Aquarium
Roberta LaQuaglia – Operations Manager, Vancouver Farmers Markets
Hunter J. Moyes – Chef at the Waldorf Hotel, Founder of The Tiffin Project
 
Appetizers will be prepared by W2 Media Café’s Chef Karen McAthy, while this month’s wine will be provided by Misconduct Wine Co.
