Dine Out Vancouver: January 14-February 1

I don’t go crazy for Dine Out Vancouver, but I think it’s a great opportunity (and excuse) to try out restaurants that I otherwise wouldn’t have a chance to. If I really like something, I’ll go back for the real deal, like a chef’s tasting menu with all the wine pairings. But until the day that this blog pays my bills, I’ll have to be happy with Dine Out Vancouver.

In past years, I’ve tried organizing people and then booking tables. This year, I’m doing the opposite. I have tables booked at db Bistro Moderne, Parkside, and YEW. Now I have to find people to eat with. I’m sure it’ll be tough.

7 years as a chemist + 9 months of culinary school + 2 years as a pastry chef & chocolatier + a lifetime of writing = this blog. This blog won't always be about chocolate, but it will almost certainly be about food. The name of the blog is a triple play on words. 1. It's a nod to my training as a classical pianist. Among other fantastic accomplishments, J.S. Bach combined technical prowess with artistic inspiration and penned the 24 preludes & fugues that make up The Well-Tempered Clavier, Books I and II. 2. In order to behave properly, chocolate needs to be tempered. In a nutshell, tempering prompts the chocolate to assume its most stable crystalline form (beta prime, if you're interested) so that it is shiny, snappy, and as stable as it can be. 3. Depending on my mood and how we meet, you might agree that I'm well-tempered. Or not.

  1. because of my resolution to eat out less, i’m going to control myself…i’m only going to go to one restaurant…it was between West and Parkside and I got Parkside. Mm food.

  2. The first time I did Dine Out I went to Parkside. I love how it’s tucked amongst the West End’s low-rise apartment buildings. I had an amazing butternut squash ravioli and one of the best desserts of my life — a sticky toffee pudding, heavy on the sticky.

    Hope your Dine Out night at Parkside is as tasty as mine was 🙂
