Dinner and a movie, whether it’s indie or mainstream – it’s a tradition.
Feast Food + Film, a three year old festival is taking it a step farther bringing food themed films together with great local purveyors for eight tactile movie experiences.
My personal favourite, Red Meat and a Bottle of Gin brings the mouthwatering film Steak (R)evolution together with sizzling grilled steak from the Village Butcher accompanied by a wee bit of gin – I’m sure there is no better marriage. The film follows the search for the best steak in the world and I think the Village Butcher makes the cut.
Over at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel they’re offering a remarkable brunch with the dream like film El Somni, a concept to bring food, art and technology together to create a once in a lifetime dinner experience by the top restaurant in the world, El Cellar de Can Roca in Spain. Both events are May 31. Check out feastfoodfilm.ca
