The Ultimate Lobster Experience Heads To Vancouver


Lobster fans rejoice! Chef Matt Dean Pettit of Toronto’s Rock Lobster Restaurants and cookbook author of THE GREAT LOBSTER COOKBOOK, in partnership with Samuel Adams beer, will be travelling to Vancouver on November 2nd, 2015, to collaborate with three talented chefs at their respective restaurants and bring you all things lobster. It seems appropriate that Chef Matt would travel to the West Coast and create menu magic. It’s been Chef’s aim to foster innovation and make something as indulgent and extravagant as lobster, more accessible for everyone. The crustacean-riddled love affair began as a child when on a family road trip to the East Coast. Since then, he’s strived to bring fun and flavourful lobster creations not only to his restaurants, but to the family table as well. His cookbook (The Great Lobster Cookbook) is a testament to how preparing lobster at home can truly be stress-free with simple but sumptuous recipes.
On from November 2nd until November 4th, 2015,  YEW seafood + bar, Jamjar Folk Lebanese Food, and The Watershed Grill, will offer unique menus in collaboration with Chef Pettit – all highlighting the fresh tastes of the Pacific Coast, and will showcase the sumptuous flavours of lobster.
