      When it comes to making meals, how often have you immediately thought “blueberries are the perfect ingredient for dinner”?

      Like the vast majority of Canadians, you’re probably thought that every single day of your life.

      Accordingly, an upcoming culinary opportunity will offer new recipes and cooking ideas to add to your repertoire while supporting the local economy during the pandemic.

      The B.C. Blueberry Council is joining forces with Abbotsford food supplier Local Food Supply Co. to launch a custom three-course B.C. Blueberry meal kit ($85), available in limited quantities for order online.

      Each meal kit contains: B.C.–grown leek, B.C.–grown walnuts, Birchwood Dairy vanilla ice cream, Goldsmith Dressing garlic vinaigrette, Holy Napoli pizza dough, kale, lemon, Mt. Lehman goat feta, prosciutto, Saputo parmesan cheese petals, spinach, yam, and the pièce de résistance: five pounds of frozen B.C. blueberries.

      The ingredients can be used to make blueberry prosciutto goat cheese flatbread, roasted yam and blueberry kale salad, and blueberry sauce.

      The purchase of a meal kit also provides access to the B.C. Blueberries for Dinner virtual event from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on March 12. (Kits will be delivered on March 11.)

      The cook-along Zoom event will provide a cooking demonstration by the Fraser Valley’s Chef Dez.

      Note that there are only 80 spots available and interested participants can register online.
