Main and Industrial
Vancouver, BC

Join us for a celebration of pure food; anchoring us to our community, cultures, traditions, the changing seasons and our fellow humans. Our farmer spotlight for this dinner is Urban Digs a small farm in South Burnaby proudly providing market vegetables, meat and eggs to both local families and to some of the top restaurants in Metro Vancouver. Focusing on sustainable agriculture and animal welfare they strive to build a healthy agro-ecosystem where people, animals and vegetables can work together to nourish bodies and our community.

We are highlighting the amazing ethos of this farm through the sharing of our main dish POZOLE, a hearty Mexican pork stew that was traditionally consumed as part of ritualistic Aztec ceremonies. It includes an array of crunchy fresh toppings like radish, onion, cilantro, lime, oregano and tostadas. We love the thousands of years of history behind this soup and want to share this recipe, adapted and imported by our creative director Lauren Elbe from a small pozole restaurant in the misty highlands of Chiapas.

Come hang out and break tostadas with us! Vegetarian option available. Pinata by artist Meaghan Kennedy. Dancing to follow with Latin and world funk DJ Bassos Rancheros and Harvey Harvey.
Beer provided by Postmark Brewing. Dickies Ginger Beer. Titos Handmade Vodka. Roaring Twenties Wine


We dream of a world where food can just be food. Where you don’t have to analyze the ingredients in a product to figure out if it is good for you or not. Where foods are delicious because of the quality of ingredients not the amount of additives and where food is made on farms and in kitchens, not in laboratories. These values have the been the foundation of my two food projects: Nuez Beverage Co. a small batch, cold pressed organic nut milk producer and SPOON + SHOVEL.

The goal of SPOON + SHOVEL is to raise awareness towards the development of our locally produced foods: what grows here, when, who is growing it and what small producers and chefs are doing with it. We have an extremely dynamic and interesting food community in Vancouver and we want everyone to know about it.
