It would be hard to find someone who doesn’t love a good meal. Our brains are even wired to reward us to eat by releasing pleasure chemicals.

That’s why the Fork and Finger Foodie Event in Downtown Langley is not only packed with unique and delicious foods, but also gets the good vibes flowing.

On Saturday, August 27th between 11:00am and 4:00pm, enjoy cooking demonstrations at McBurney Plaza including Summer Grilling and Paella with Chef John Walls, and sample the best food in the Lower Mainland.

Here’s 5 ways to eat your way to a good time.

Eat and win big

Pick up your Fork and Finger Passport in McBurney Plaza and then collect stamps by visiting a minimum of three of the thirteen participating restaurants to purchase a $5 Sampler. Return your passports to McBurney Plaza to be entered to win over $1,000 Downtown Dollars.

You’ll never run out of food

With 13 diverse businesses signed up to offer their $5 sampler plates, you’ll run out of room before you run out of food.

Strangers will become friends

Enjoy Al Fresco entertaining, and enjoy a casual backyard dining demonstration in McBurney Plaza with family and friends. Chef Parinya Loptson will demonstrate easy, healthy and delicious food options that go beautifully together in these hot, summer months.

Try something new

New this year is the Plaza Side Stage featuring a Paella making demonstration and sampling with Chef John Wall. Paella is a Spanish rice dish flavoured with saffron and spices, and cooked with tomatoes, garlic, onion, white wine, chicken, chorizo and shellfish.

Everything is within waddle distance

Enjoy the experience of walking (or waddling, depending on how much you’ve eaten) from business to business to try the samples. Plus, the business owners are all so friendly that it’s like being welcomed into your own kitchen every time!

With more restaurants participating than ever before in the Fork and Finger Passport, and Downtown Dollar giveaways happening all day in McBurney Plaza, whether you’re a certified foodie or first-timer, it’s an event sure to satisfy every appetite.
