Hastings House Country House Hotel and Dining

Room on Salt Spring Island is pleased to present

 our new guest chef program—top BC chefs have

 been invited to prepare five-course dinners in

the Hastings House kitchen, incorporating Salt

Spring Island’s produce, seafood, and meats.

 Wine pairings featuring BC wines will be offered

 to complement the extraordinary menus.

Salt Spring Island is a food-lover’s paradise, blessed

 with a mild Mediterranean-like climate and devoted

 growers and producers renowned for their organic

 fruits and vegetables, meats, and cheeses.

Fresh-caught, wild seafood rounds out nature’s

 local  pantry.

In recent years, island wineries have further added

 to the diversity of the local harvest.

 Diners can look forward to amazing experiences

 as the celebrated guest chefs each put their own

personal spin on Salt Spring Island flavours.

Help support the Salt Spring Abattoir Project

These events will also raise awareness of the

 health  and economic benefits of using local,

organic and sustainable ingredients and bring into

 focus how local farming is being challenged by

changing regulations that favour large agri-businesses.

 A portion of the proceeds of the Guest Chef

dinners will go to Island Natural Growers to benefit

the  Salt Spring Abattoir Project.
