Blue Water Cafe’s Unsung Heroes, Vancouver’s unique seafood event, celebrates 12 years with a month-long festival.
While there are many things that help define why Vancouver is so great, food is definitely one that most will agree on. We’re also extremely lucky to have access to fresh seafood, which is why Blue Water Cafe’s Unsung Heroes event is one of the most-anticipated events for local foodies.
Award winning executive chef Frank Pabst is excited to be celebrating the 12th anniversary of Unsung Heroes, a month-long sustainable seafood festival that brings awareness to overlooked local and unique seafoods. From red sea urchin trifle, stir-fried jellyfish and poached periwinkles, the Unsung Heroes menu has always introduced new flavours and experiences for their hungry guests and this year is no different; Chef Pabst promises to fascinate the tastebuds with previously unavailable ingredients including steamed gooseneck barnacles and sustainably-raised sturgeon liver mousse.
Held at the Blue Water Cafe, which is known for championing British Columbia’s sustainable seafood movement, 10% of the proceeds from the Unsung Heroes event will help benefit the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise conservation program.
