From Aurora Bistro…

by admin on April 30, 2007


Vancouver, BC…Aurora Bistro is excited to announce the return of their mid-week summer tasting series, “Your Food, Your Wine @ Aurora.” Alongside of the regular dinner menu, “Your Food, Your Wine @ Aurora” brings you a fresh tasting menu available from Monday to Thursday every week until late September. For $49 per person, enjoy 3 regional dishes prepared by Chef Jeff Van Geest, each paired with a local wine from various British Columbia wineries.

Watch for featured local treasures such as hops, beets, berries, asparagus and heirloom tomatoes. Next weeks menu features a Local Wild Hop Soup with Parmesan Oil. The hops were picked at the mouth of the Fraser River where a Japanese fishing village once stood. The Japanese fisherman planted the hops over 100 years ago to brew their own beer. “Your Food, Your Wine @ Aurora” is three courses, three wines, one price. Monday to Thursday, ALL SUMMER LONG. This tasting series is synonymous with everything that is fresh, seasonal, local and (most of all) fun! Please call 604-873-9944 to make a reservation. (See below for next week’s menu).

Chef/Owner Jeff Van Geest is truly honoured for the recognition Aurora received at the 18th Annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards. Aurora Bistro received the Gold Award for Best Regional Restaurant; a tie with Bishop’s. “I am thrilled to be recognized in this category alongside my mentor and good friend John Bishop.” Says Van Geest. “I just want to express my deepest gratitude to my colleagues, to Vancouver’s food and wine media and to my customers for all of their support.”

Aurora Bistro is open for dinner nightly from 5:30pm, offering modern Canadian cuisine in an approachable, neighbourhood setting. Jeff Van Geest offers local and organic products, including an all-B.C. wine list – a priority in his contemporary West Coast cuisine.
