Last night I attended the Vancouver International Film Festival Gala Party at Rocky Mountaineer Station, an incredible celebration of eating, drinking, mimes, music and mingling.

Chef Marta Pan of Pan-o-Pan Desserts

Many restaurants took part in this showcasing of tasty bites and I nibbled may way through them all from Glowbal Group’s Biratta Crostini to Sanafir’s Chicken Roulade to Goldfish’s Crab rounds to C Restaurant’s bites on sticks to tasty desserts such as Ethical Bean’s Sugared Donuts to the most amazing Pan-o-Pan Chocolate Truffles, Chili Chocolate Truffles and Coconut Truffles.

The Vancouver International Film Festival runs through October 15, 2010.
