Directly from the West Restaurant Press Release:
Guest Chef Dinner Series
A historic reunion of two of the UK’s leading chefs–
Richard Neat, and our own Warren Geraghty
Vancouver, B.C. - On Monday, August 31st, one of the United Kingdom’s most accomplished chefs, Richard Neat, will be reunited with his protégé, West’s own Warren Geraghty, for a very special guest chef dinner at Vancouver’s West Restaurant.
Together again for one night only, they will present a collaborative seven-course menu with alternating plates from each chef, reliving their time together at London’s Pied à Terre and Restaurant Neat.
Richard Neat was among a host of emerging chefs–now all multiple Michelin star recipients–to revolutionize London’s dining landscape. In 1987, Richard joined chef Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Oxfordshire, where he was senior chef de partie; during his tenure he was named Great Britain’s Young Chef of the Year. In 1989, he became chef saucier at Restaurant Jamin in Paris, and was a protégé of the great Joël Robuchon before moving back to London to join another emerging British talent, Marco Pierre White, as head chef at Harveys, one of the restaurants that began the revival of London as an international culinary destination.
In 1992, Richard realized his ambition, opening his own Pied à Terre in London’s Soho, earning his first Michelin star in 1993, and his second in 1996. It was during this time that chef Warren Geraghty, now of West, in turn became a protégé of Richard’s, eventually moving with him to Cannes to open Restaurant Neat where Richard was honoured as the first British chef to win a Michelin star in France.
The duo opened Restaurant Neat in London and following that, Richard opened Casa Lalla in Marrakech. Since 2006, he has been living in Costa Rica, where he delights culinary travelers and locals at his elegantly informal Park Café.
The seven-course menu is priced at $138, plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are now being accepted from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Call 604 738 8938 to reserve your table.

Directly from the Mink a Chocolate Cafe Press Release
July 30, 2009 (Vancouver, BC) – Continuing its tradition of actively contributing to the community, Mink A Chocolate Café will be donating 100% of tips received this August to the West Coast Book Prize Society.
Every month, the staff of Mink A Chocolate Café donates all the tips they receive from customers to a charity of their choice. Their selection of the West Coast Book Prize Society makes perfect sense when one considers that nothing pairs more delightfully with a good book than a freshly-brewed cup of coffee or a box of handmade chocolate bonbons. And contributing to the West Coast Book Prize Society is an excellent way to support our local artistic community, as the Society recognizes and encourages BC writers and publishers. Established in 1985, the Society awards seven BC Book Prizes annually, helping to cultivate and reward excellence in the local literary community.
We hope you will help us support this worthy organization the next time you stop by Mink A Chocolate Café to enjoy an espresso or to pick up a decadent handmade chocolate bar.

Directly From the Central Bistro Press Release:
NEW MENU AT CENTRAL BISTRO OFFERS A “TASTE OF HOME”
Central Bistro, with a new Head Chef and under new ownership, has launched
a new lunch and dinner menu, which offers West Enders a “taste of home”.
The small but lively bistro has long been known for its eclectic brunch
menu, which draws a loyal following to the West End bistro every weekend.
Events such as Sunday Jazz Night and Martini Monday have also drawn a
devoted crowd of locals. Under the ownership of Doug Taylor (who bought
the restaurant in December of 2008) and the culinary leadership of Ian
Yalloway (who became the Head Chef in October), a new menu has been
released which compliments its “feel at home” ambience with its “taste of
“Sometimes a simple thing,” says Ian, “can be a beautiful thing.” His new
menu emphasizes the simple elegance that a traditional comfort food can
have, when it is thoughtfully prepared with fresh ingredients and seasoned
Born and raised in Ireland, it is fitting that his new menu should feature
such dishes as British Style Pub Pies (a delicious vegetarian version is
available, too), Halibut and Chips, and Killarney Hot Smoked Salmon. Other
ethnic influences (Ian has trained and worked in six different countries)
have inspired the Moules et Frites (five different varieties), the
Dutch-style Bitterballen (panko-breaded beef and chicken balls) and the
Though his emphasis is on traditional cooking done right, his broad range
of knowledge occasionally leads to surprising combinations. The Twinkie,
for example, is a classic French braised short rib, but it is served on a
bed of traditional cheesy spaetzle (which he learned to make in Germany).
It is topped with a fresh tomato compote, a finish which is borne of his
New Pastry Chef Veronica Keddy (formerly the Pastry Chef of the
prestigious Feenie’s Restaurant in Kitsilano) is adding her own sense of
style to the notion of traditional comfort foods. Her seasonal, rotating
list of desserts will feature such familiar offerings as carrot cake,
cheesecake, cobblers, and creme brulees… but done, of course, with her
signature flair. The carrot cake, for instance, is topped with a
to-die-for orange-zest and cream cheese icing. “I want something that
compliments Ian’s food,” she says, “and if Ian’s food is very simple, and
hearty, then I want something that’s going to balance that.”
Simplicity is at the heart of what new owner Doug Taylor has aimed to
achieve with Central Bistro, on every level. He has simplified the beer
and wine menus (and given them a mostly local focus) and recent
renovations to the restaurant have given the room a simple, elegant, and
comfortable feel. “Central is like a second home to many of the locals
who come here,” says Doug. “Now we can offer them home-style comfort

Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Winery is pleased to present
The Best of Canadian Food, Wine and Song, at ROOTSTOCK!
Steven Page, Jim Cuddy, Tom Cochrane, Kathleen Edwards & John Mann
For one night only: On August 19, the Amphitheatre at Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Winery, Niagara on the Lake, will host ROOTSTOCK, wine country’s first ever Canadian Songwriters’ Circle. This intimate evening will feature five of Canada’s top musical artists - Steven Page, Jim Cuddy, Tom Cochrane, Kathleen Edwards and John Mann (Spirit of the West), and will truly be a celebration of fine Canadian music and wine.
ROOTSTOCK is a unique gathering that will feature five of Canada’s most prolific singer-songwriters, at one of Canada’s most intimate and unique venues, The Jackson-Triggs Amphitheatre.
A founding member of Barenaked Ladies, Steven Page has one of the most distinctive voices in Canadian music. Steven has recently launched his solo career - he is currently working on a new solo release and has recently scored the Stratford Shakespeare Festival’s production of “Bartholomew Fair.”
When he’s not touring or recording with seminal Canadian alt-country favourites Blue Rodeo, Jim Cuddy can be found fronting ‘The Jim Cuddy Band’, a project that finds him collaborating with the likes of Melanie Doane, Michelle McAdorey (Crash Vegas) and Sarah Harmer.
Tom Cochrane has penned such classic songs as “Life is a Highway” and “Big League”, always delivering a uniquely Canadian Perspective through his lyrics. He has won seven Juno Awards and is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Kathleen Edwards has been hailed as one of Canada’s finest and most distinctive singer-songwriters. The New York Times has said,” Edwards can pare situations down to a few dozen words while they push country-rock towards its primal impulses of thump and twang.”
Spirit of the West’s front man and songwriter John Mann pens beautiful melodies with emotionally honest lyrics that capture the raw, intimate moments.
John Mann is also an actor of stage, film and television and currently can be seen on the CBC TV drama Intelligence.
All five Rootstock musicians will share their talents, performing and interacting with each other and a silent auction will be held for a Gibson guitar.
