The concept of farm to table is nothing new. In fact, for our ancestors, there was nothing but farm to table. Over the years we have seen restaurants deviate from sourcing locally because of costs and the desire for ingredients that may be considered 'exotic' to the region. Fortunately, we are seeing many restaurants revert back to the idea of knowing where the meat they're cooking has come from, how the animals have been raised and who is picking those scrumptious vegetables and fruits you're tucking into.
You'll find Vancouver's dining scene is filled with restaurants that use local, seasonal and organic ingredients and are big proponents of serving farm to table dishes. By no means is this list exhaustive, but here are 10 of Vancouver's best farm to table restaurants.
Fable Restaurant's chef, Trevor Bird, knows where his ingredients come from and passionately creates exquisite meals that are delicious and unpretentious. From wild B.C. salmon and local Yarrow Meadows duck to farm-fresh eggs and produce, diners can enjoy brunch, lunch and dinner here.
For those that like to enjoy all parts of the animal and not just standard cuts, Wildebeest in Gastown will satisfy. Not only do they use locally sourced ingredients, you'll find a lot of nose to tail dishes here. They have a stellar cocktail list, to boot!
