Whistler’s Araxi restaurant gets ready to set the longest table in their Longtable Dinner Series history this August in Pemberton
Chefs, restaurateurs and vintners across British Columbia are eager to provide diners unique experiences. This summer, the most interesting dinners take place not at restaurants, but on farms, on beaches and in historical buildings where the focus is on locally grown and raised ingredients. Not one to rest in their laurels, Araxi is heading to Pemberton to host their longest longtable dinner event ever — for 400 guests!
Araxi executive chef, James Walt, brings together Pemberton Valley’s best producers, farmers and B.C. winemakers for a series of farm-to-table dinners that take place al fresco. The event begins with guests sipping cocktails and tasting Chef’s favourite ingredients in their raw form at the onsite Farmers Market before sitting down to a four-course dinner.
