A couple months ago I attended a film and food tasting presented by The Chefs’ Table Society of BC and the Vancouver International Film Centre —Cinema to Savour at the Vancity Theatre, for a family friendly evening of film and food. Guests enjoyed delicious French fare prepared by Chef Scott Jaeger of the Pear Tree Restaurant, a taste of his talents before enjoying the Disney Pixar animated classic, Ratatouille.

Chef Scott Jaeger served French-inspired finger food during the family-friendly evening. I loved the Pea Tart: liquid Pea Bubble with Onion Anglaise and Squash Risotto.

Centered on a specific culture, each ‘Cinema to Savour’ movie night showcases the food of a selected top chef. These chefs choose films that have been inspirational to them and prepare and serve food that reflects the film and cultural theme of the evening. Poised to attract a wide audience of Vancouverite foodies and movie buffs, Cinema to Savour is the perfect way for moviegoers to engage with Vancouver’s top chefs and industry members.

The Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia is a collaborative dedicated to creating a foundation for the exchange of information between culinary professionals throughout the province. The society supports innovative and sustainable programs that inspire, educate and nurture chefs, producers and the local food industry. For more information visit: www.chefstablesociety.com.
