Terra Vancouver launches vegan pop-up dinners in the city

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      It’s safe to say that Vancouver is a vegan-friendly metropolitan—many restaurants around town can cater to those who follow this kind of diet and lifestyle.

      But a new pop-up dining company aims to enhance the culinary experience for vegans.

      Terra Vancouver is a local food company that hosts gluten-free and vegan pop-up dinners in the city. Its events take place once a month in different locations, and each dinner has a unique theme and menu.

      Instead of scanning the menu for which vegan-friendly items to choose from, guests will be enjoying a multicourse meal that is entirely vegan.

      Terra’s next pop-up dinner takes place on June 25 at the Juice Truck (28 West 5th Avenue), but tickets ($80 per person plus taxes and gratuity) have already sold-out.

      Here’s a sneak peek of the ingredients that will be used for its upcoming creations: heirloom tomatoes, truffled duxelles (mushroom mixture), turnip and wild watercress, potatoes, strawberries, and rhubarbs.  

      “There’s nothing really like it. The chef comes from a background of Michelin stars and focuses on a unique dining experience,” David Khayutin, Terra Vancouver’s project manager, told the Straight by phone. “It’s all about texture, combination of flavours, and appropriate assets. It’s very well-crafted, and it’s very much being entertained with your food.”

      Don’t fret if you want to take part in one of these pop-up meals—Khayutin hints that there are plans for another event sometime this summer.
