Calling all food aficionados, the annual Fork & Finger food festival returns to downtown Langley this Saturday, August 24, and you don’t want to miss it.
Presented by the Downtown Langley Business Association, Fork & Finger is an opportunity to gather with fellow food lovers to celebrate and sample dishes from some of Langley City’s unique restaurants. And be sure to go hungry!
Here’s how it works: stop by the DLBA table in McBurney Plaza to pick up your Fork & Finger Passport and a list of restaurants, or check out the list online ahead of time to figure out your plan of attack. Then, visit the $5 Sampler locations, and for each purchase, you receive a sticker for your passport. Collect at least 3 stickers and return your passport to McBurney Plaza by 4:00 pm to be entered to win over $1000 participating restaurants to purchase a $5 Sampler. Return completed passports to McBurney Plaza and be entered to win a share of over $1000 Downtown Dollars.
Be one of the first 250 to pick up a Fork & Finger passport and the DLBA will give you a free $5 sampler coupon to get you started!
Some of the amazing dishes on offer (for $5!!) include: garlic scape gnocchi from Annora Restaurant, Grilled Cheese Waffle Chicken from Food by Fanta, a Mother Bowl (organic Buckwheat noodles, hemp heart & pumpkin seed pesto, roasted yams & beluga lentils) from Leef & Stem Culinary Co. Korean fried chicken from Rib & Chicken and tacos from Tacoholic. And be sure to save room for desserts like an old-fashioned milkshake from Brogan’s Diner, a chocolate, strawberry & banana crepe from the Hot & Toasty Café or a lemon crinkle cookie and lemonade from the Lemon Café.
If you find that you need a break from the sample plates, and you might, the portions are generous, check out the live demonstrations featuring local products available from businesses in Downtown Langley, including All of Oils and 1 Fish 2 Fish, and local favourite, and award-winning, Kevin Legge of Big Dog BBQ, who will be grilling all day and handing out samples. Also on the live demo stage in McBurney Plaza catch award-winning celebrity chef Spencer Watts, whose resume includes Gusto TV shows Fish the Dish, Watts on the Grill and Spencer’s Big 30.
Between live demonstrations enjoy music from Ryan McAllister who will be performing live in McBurney Plaza, and before you leave be sure to grab a free cupcake from the Lemon Bakery, compliments of Discover Langley City.
