VIDEO: Chef’s demos enliven Fork and Finger event

McBurney Lane was the center of Fork and Finger.

The Fork and Finger Foodie event drew crowds to downtown Langley City on Saturday, Aug. 26 where they saw demos and sampled the wares of a number of local stores and restaurants.

A series of demonstrations were hosted by executive chef Sean Bone, including demonstrating how to make fresh stuffed pasta.

Attendance was the highest in five years, thanks to perfect weather and a large number of local restaurants participating.

Attendees told organizers they discovered new restaurants, where they plan to return soon.

The grand prize of $400 Downtown Dollars went to Jason Tokaryk.

A full $1,000 in Downtown Dollars were given away in the event, and will come back to businesses that are part of the Downtown Langley Business Association.
