    Item Description:

    Foraging and Feasting for the Root on tap in October

    October is the month to get informed about local food. As part of Local Food Month, the Salt Spring Island Farmland Trust is bringing Bill Jones, a chef and author based on Deerholme Farm in the Cowichan Valley, to host an elegant 5 course dinner in support of The Root, the local food centre currently under construction on Beddis Road.

    WHAT: Dinner with Bill Jones
    WHEN: 5 Course Dinner, October 15th 6:00 pm @ Sailing Club
    TICKETS: For dinner, at SS Books $115 includes wine + non-alcoholic drinks

    Bill Jones is a French trained chef, author of 12 cookbooks, winner of 3 world cookbook awards, busy journalist, food consultant, community builder and wild mushroom foraging expert.
    Bill will be assisted by Chef Daniel Shipley, of Farm’s Gate Foods. Daniel graduated from GISS, trained at The Culinary Institute of America, has worked at top restaurants across North America, in Hawaii and on Vancouver Island, as well as on organic farms in northern B.C. and the Yukon. Dan is excited to return to his culinary roots and collaborate with Chef Jones in creating a seasonal meal to remember. Wines accompanying the dinner will be from Kutatas Wines, the new owners of the former Mistaken Identity Winery.

    Seats are limited. Tickets are $115, include wine pairings or a non alcoholic option, and are available through Salt Spring Books.

    When completed, the Root will provide unique local food infrastructure, from seed to plate. The development will include the community seed bank, temperature-controlled storage for local crops, a licensed Foodsafe processing kitchen, a permaculture food landscape, renewable energy, water catchment, and provide food education and training opportunities. The Root is designed to support our island’s transition from dependence on unsustainable imported foods to greater resilience on food grown right here. It even includes an on-site affordable housing unit.
