Celebrating the versatility of B.C. blueberries with zesty three-course menu

Fraser Valley foodies may want to take part in virtual cooking demo Friday night with Chef Dez

A virtual cooking demonstration with Chef Dez is on offer this week to celebrate the brilliance and versatility of B.C. blueberries.

Participants who purchase a meal kit gain exclusive access to the ‘BC Blueberries for Dinner’ virtual cook-along with the popular Fraser Valley chef on Friday, March 12, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

“Although BC Blueberries are available in the freezer aisle year-round, it’s important to celebrate this local blue superfood and the special region where it’s grown.”

Learn some tricks and recipes during Blueberries for Dinner with some stellar artisan ingredients: a tasty flatbread with prosciutto, blueberries, goat cheese, a blueberry-bedecked salad, and luscious blueberry sauce for cheesecake.

The cooking demo by Zoom with Chef Dez is meant to herald the incredible versatility of blueberries. The BC Blueberry Council teamed up with Abbotsford food venture Local Food Supply to create a custom $85 meal kit featuring blueberries and an array of tasty show-stopping ingredients to pair them with.

Meal kits, so folks can cook along with the chef’s presentation, can be pre-ordered from Local Food Supply of Abbotsford for pickup/delivery of the kits in the Fraser Valley is available if ordered by midnight March 10, 2021.
