Cool Aid Joins Island Chef’s Collaborative at Market Square Saturday
Thirsty Chef #5, a unique west coast food & craft beer experience, is happening Saturday July 27, 2019 from 12-4 pm in the Market Square courtyard.
Hand-picked breweries match their beer with food creations from some of the city's best chefs. While the event has already sold out the media is welcome to join us.
Thirsty Chef #5 celebrates The Drake Eatery's 5th anniversary and raises funds for the Islands' Chef Collaborative to build a sustainable food culture on Vancouver Island and support microloans to area farmers to grow more food and connect with local merchants.
For the first time, two non-profit organizations will join in the collaboration. Cool Aid’s head chef and Manager of Food Services, Paul Stewart, will prepare some mouth-watering delights, served together with our partner The Mustard Seed. “For me personally, and also for Cool Aid, food security is a very important issue,” said Paul Stewart. “We want to support local farmers to the extent possible and are excited to have joined the Island Chef’s Collaborative.”
