Interesting Vancouver’s Foodtree

Tonight is one of Vancouver’s most unique gatherings, taking place at the Rowing Club in Stanley Park. The event, called Interesting Vancouver, brings together a handful of speakers from extremely varied walks of life to present new and thought provoking ideas to a crowd of about a hundred.

Our CEO, Tony Nicalo, is not only catering the event (he just made hundreds of canapes for tonights guests…yeah really) but he’ll be giving a speech called “What’s For Dinner“.

Jonny has put the entire menu of appetizers on Foodtree linked to the source of each ingredient.

The event’s Foodtree list is located here.

Below I’ll paste the menu he’s prepared, and you’ll notice that alongside the master Foodtree (simply a list of all the places the food is from) we’ve broken out each appetizer into it’s own unique list. This is just one way we’re using the system we’ve set up, and would love more ideas if you’ve got them!

If you happen to be at Interesting Vancouver make sure to find us and say hello!
