Butter on the Endive presents “Chef in Residence: a Collaborative Food Project” to be held May 3 through 6, in a private venue located above Le Marché St. Georges Café. Chef in Residence like ‘artist in residence’, is a curated series that provides an opportunity to work with the community, share creative ideas or simply enjoy the company of others in a salon-style environment. Throughout the day, the space will act as a lounge for Le Marché goers, inviting them to come up to the space with coffee and pastries in-hand and meet the Butter on the Endive team while they prepare for dinner service. Also popping-up in the residence will be a collection of three Vancouver-based photographers: David Zilber, Hana Pesut, KIN Chan.
