We’re bitter together!

Bitter Together: Radicchio Tasting Event

Join the UBC Farm, FarmFolk CityFolk, and Chef Andrea Carlson of Burdock & Co for Bitter Together: Radicchio Tasting Event at the 2021 Vancouver Radicchio Festival.

This tasting event will feature five radicchio varieties grown organically at FarmFolk CityFolk Research & Education Seed Farm and the UBC Farm. Guests will have the opportunity to taste both raw and cooked samples of each variety and rank their favourites to help support research. You will also get a chance to win radicchio-themed prizes!

All radicchio varieties featured are part of the Canadian Organic Vegetable Improvement Project (CANOVI), a five-year collaborative project between the UBC Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security, and FarmFolk CityFolk.

This event will be held on October 20, 2021, from 5:00 – 8:00 pm at Burdock & Co. To facilitate social distancing only 12-18 guests will be allowed in the restaurant per half an hour time slot. Inside the restaurant there will be three stations each catering a group of 4-6 guests. Proof of vaccination required at door and masks are to be worn till at your station. Combined samples will be equivalent to a light meal and guests will leave with a take-out radicchio filled meal to enjoy.
