Long Table Harvest event will be a taste of Prince George’s culinary community

Tourism Prince George is preparing to host its first-ever Long Table Harvest event, on Friday, October 21.

This event is a culmination of Tourism Prince George’s marketing initiatives that has celebrated Prince George’s food and beverage industry, as well as an appreciation for local farmers.

“The Long Table Harvest is the icing on top of a year-long campaign to promote the Prince George culinary scene, which started with our ‘Eats in PG Culinary Contest’ that took place in February,” said Tourism Prince George’s CEO Colin Carson. “Food and beverage is such an important piece to the visitor experience and we’re thrilled to be able to continue to partner and support the amazing people and businesses in the culinary industry in Prince George.”

Long Table Harvest, is a true farm-to-table experience. With only 50 tickets available for purchase, this intimate soiree will include a three-course meal prepared by three different chefs from Prince George. Each chef will be partnered with a local vegetable producer, meat producer, and brewery/winery for a paired beverage, to create a one-of-a-kind dish. This event also marks the final piece to a local documentary being filmed by Darrin Rigo and Evan Dux. Rigo and Dux have spent the last year following local farmers on a journey that will take its audience to the landscapes of Prince George’s food growers. The film will share stories of operating a farm in northern B.C. to the people behind it and, ultimately, the end-product of delectable dishes.

“We believe that the climate and communities of the future will be driven by being more connected to the food we consume and that can start with understanding who and where our food comes from,” said Dux.

These stories will be celebrated through the Long Table Harvest event featuring the local farmers and chefs.

“The dinner will give us an opportunity to showcase Prince George’s amazing local talent and food sustainability, by partnering with local chefs and farmers,” said Carson.

The evening will be held at Art Knapps Greenhouse (4411 Kimball Rd), a perfect setting for this organic-feel, with a touch of rustic, event. The featured chefs and the full menu will be announced on social channels leading up to the event. Tickets will be available for purchase on Monday, Sept. 26, 2022 at the Visitors Information Centre or online through Tourism Prince George’s Shopify store.
