This is a collaboration that we love! Some of you might remember Broadway Wine Shop alumni, Chef Erin Vickars, from a few years back. We miss her dearly as part of our team, but are ever so proud of all that she’s accomplished to date. It was in fact Erin who introduced us to Project Chef years ago, when she discovered that our then preschooler, Chase was seriously into food. When Erin earned her Red Seal certificate, Chase thought that she actually received a red mammal-from-the-ocean seal and he illustrated that in a special card to congratulate her! Erin’s work spans over a decade, having worked with many prestigious chefs and restaurants, like Café de Paris, Diva at the Met, The Vancouver Club, Bishop’s and a staging at Atelier Crenn in San Francisco, under Chef Dominique Crenn in 2016 (to name a few). Recently, Erin was featured in Where Women Cook, where she shares a raw and detailed journey of her culinary career.
Erin brings her passion and love of cooking on board Outer Shore’s Passing Cloud, a 70 ft classic wooden schooner designed by William James Roué, famous for designing the legendary fishing schooner, Bluenose. Outer Shores is a niche travel company that explores our coastal waters on amazing journeys of scenery, wildlife, culture and of culinary cuisine. Erin embraces the challenges of cooking at sea and creates beautiful meals showcasing our amazing local producers, as well as foraged foods—sea asparagus, Dungeness crab, spot prawns, edible kelp, rockfish and more— found along the trip. We feel honoured that Erin will be at the shop for this special event literally two days before she leaves to Haida Gwaii for her next expedition.
