Just for krills: Dine like a predator at Edible Education, Friday, Mar. 21 at Jamie’s

Have you ever wondered what killer whales, grey whales, and white-sided dolphins eat? Have you ever been curious to take your taste buds for a dip into the sea? An evening of Edible Education will give folks that opportunity on Friday, March 21, courtesy of Jamie’s Rainforest Inn crew and the Pacific Rim Whale Festival. On the menu, an array of marine tapas featuring unique ingredients sourced and prepared by Jamie’s Executive Chef, Jason Aloian.

“This will be a marine mammal presentation paired with a tasting of coastal tapas that feature the primary prey of your favourite Pacific predators,” said festival organizer Gillian Nicol.

Cocktail Service begins at 5:30pm, with guest speakers and food pairings from 6-8 p.m. and live music to follow.

“This is an opportunity to engage with expert marine biologists. Each speaker will present on a focused species: exploring their role in the food chain, general marine food-system health, ecosystem complexities, unique feeding habits and predatory tactics,” Nicol said.

“This event will be an opportunity to learn about and indulge on the foods these majestic mammals eat on a daily basis.”

Guest speakers will include Kathy Heise of the Vancouver Aquarium, who will talk about White-Sided Dolphins; Lance Barrett-Lennard of the Vancouver Aquarium who will talk about Killer Whales and Jackie Hildering of Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) who will talk about Grey/Humpback Whales.

Admission of $40 includes a glass of sparkling wine, tapas, & presentation. For information, call 250-725-2323.
