Local Event: Vancouver: Date Night In

8 Apr

Date Night In



Some nights it’s better to skip the babysitter, the busy restaurant and the pricy bill. Instead opt for a more intimate night of conversation and a delicious meal right at home. Inspired by Ashley Rodriguez’s popular cookbook Date Night In, this two night workshop will nourish your relationship through food. Learn how to carve out some time for each other (or yourself) without having to plan a big night out.

Night 1Sample a selection of light recipes from the cookbook, receive your copy of the cookbook, and discuss challenges surrounding Date Nights, such as grocery shopping and some time-saving tips.

Night 2: Sample more light recipes from the cookbook, discuss your Date Night In experiences and critique recipes that were used.

Lead by Samantha Gutmanis, the talented foodie blogger behind My Kitchen Love and co-hosted by Bree Galbraith and Carina-Marie Nilsson of Peaks and Harbours, the workshop will take place at The Pleasant — an indie gift shop and community space in the heart of Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood.

April 30 & May 21, 7-8:30 | 197 East 17th Ave. a few steps west of Main St.
$80 per participant or $125 per couple | Both prices include 1 cookbook.
Call, email, or swing by The Pleasant to purchase your tickets.
