Araxi’s Longtable series returns to Pemberton on Saturday, September 5 at North Arm Farm.
The event, which epitomises the idea of farm-to-table dining, takes place against the beautiful backdrop of Pemberton and Mount Currie. As always it is expected to sell out fast.
Here are 7 reasons why you should go this year:
A foodies dream
The food is simply incredible. With a menu crafted by Araxi’s award-winning Executive Chef James Walt what more could you expect?
The meal is inspired by Walt’s love of organic food and farm-to-table dining. Having long been partnered with North Arm Farm at Araxi, the Longtable was the logical next step – a chance to enjoy amazing food in the setting it came from.
A beautiful landscape
The huge table is set up in one of the fields at North Arm, against the impressive backdrop of Mount Currie. You could not wish for a more beautiful place to enjoy a meal in the outdoors.
As a farming town Pemberton is the perfect location for this meal and the landscape only adds to the wonderful experience.
Organic produce is at the heart of the meal, with each menu item carefully crafted with the food’s source in mind.
There is no better way to experience organic food than in the location it is from. For those passionate about organic and supporting local farmers, this meal should not be missed.
Preceding the meal is a canapé and cocktail reception, with spirits provided by organic spirit maker, Pemberton Distillery.
Guests can socialise and enjoy the farm and landscape before tucking into the incredible four course meal, which is paired with BC Wines.
North Arm Farm
North Arm Farm is one of the most famous draws to Pemberton and a staple at the local farmers’ markets.
Many know the farm from the markets, or for its u-pick, which offers some incredible deals on some of the best organic fruit and berries.
The Pemberton Distillery is a local distillery offering a range of completely organic spirits from the mind of owner Tyler Schramm. Family owned and using all local ingredients Schramm crafts unique vodka, gin, whiskey and more.
A unique experience
All in all Araxi’s Longtable is a truly unique experience for food lovers, and one that is incredibly popular.
