On Saturday, April 5, 30 Vancouverites will make home cooked meals for strangers all to benefit local charities during #dinnerpartyYVR, presented by Cressey. SPUD, Fortis BC and Two Rivers help provide the dinner ingredients, while Serendipity Winery and Granville Island Brewery will pour libations. After dinner, Modo, The Car-Coop will whisk diners off to the After Party, hosted at Meccanica.
And over the next two weeks, we’ll be sharing some of the hobby chef’s stories. To support a meal, visit dinnerpartyyvr.com.
Meet Douglas Vandor, two time Canadian Olympic rower. Tell us what inspired you to sign on as a Hobby Chef?
I received an email from NWCA of Vancouver and thought it was a great way to have fun cooking while raising money for charity. Plus, I love cooking! Enough said!
What will your meal, Tapas Vancouver Style, be like?
I like eating small amounts of many different things in one sitting. That is what I am trying to do with my meal.
Who is your sous chef, and why did you pick them?
My soon to be wife. We both like cooking and have a lot of fun in the kitchen together.
