Welcome to Feast of Fields
Welcome to Feast of Fields at Alderlea Farm & Cafe in Duncan, Vancouver Island!
Marina Restaurant's Crab Boil
Marina Restaurant in Victoria serves up a crab boil, creating a feeding frenzy (the fun kind).
Working for Your Food
The crab boil brought on lots of attention as people had to smash their way to their food, many using the stones instead of mallets to get to the delicious crab meat.
Shrimp from AURA
AURA Restaurant (at the Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria) serves up Side Stripe shrimp on scallop with shiitake mushrooms, tomato ragout, and yuzu aioli. Bright flavors and beautiful presentation.
Amuse on the Vineyard (Cobble Hill) teams with Teafarm (North Cowichan) to create emu pate with Teafarm chutney, as well as interesting tea cocktails and chocolates with tea.
The longest lines were for the delicious pork sausages (with choice of three mustards) from Avenue Bistro in Comox.
Brat on Pretzel Crostini
Pork bratwurst with sauerkraut on pretzel crostini from the meat-loving Black Hat Bistro in Victoria.
Bernardin's Peach Crumble
Peach crumble preserve topped with organic vanilla yogurt in Bernardin jars. The location near the entrance of the event had many people lining up twice for these fresh and sweet treats.
Spinnaker's Apple Sorbet
Spinnaker's Brewpub in Victoria intended to do ice cream sandwiches, but the weather was warm and the ice cream was melting too quickly. So they improvised an open-faced sandwich: Sooke transparent apple sorbet on a ginger cookie.
Special guests of honor were two water buffalo, both two weeks old, resting near a tasting of the cheese they'll soon help produce.
