Vive La Vodka!
February 2nd, the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver Chefs and Spirits Ambassador, Kevin Brownlee will host an interactive afternoon of sipping, shucking and a refreshing taste of all things vodka. Vive La Vodka! Perfectly timed to celebrate winter’s bounty of oysters – attendees of this event will experience a Grey Goose vodka tasting, oyster shucking lesson, martini and oyster pairing, along with a selection of cocktails and small plates from YEW. Attendees will learn to shuck from the masters, Evan Morgan, YEW’s Restaurant Chef for example grew up enjoying oysters on Vancouver Island and is highly experienced with British Columbia’s offerings.
There is a delicacy with oysters that can only really be tended to with spirits that maintain a balance between being strong and elegant, yet assertive and refreshing – this is exactly where vodka holds court. A briny, dirty martini elevates the lovely saltiness of an oyster. The delicate notes of citrus and hints of almond in Grey Goose work well with the creamy textured nuances of oysters, and a zested lemon over the top of a martini highlights these flavour components perfectly, while a smoky rinse of a martini plays wonders to the tune of an oyster’s mineral notes. Though this popular event is sold out, it is available for private group bookings.
