A table set for over a hundred, a snow-capped mountain in the background, and the bounty of a valley farm served up by one of the best restaurants in the province — that was our Araxi Longtable experience at North Arm Farm in Pemberton a few summers ago. This year, Whistler-based Araxi Restaurant and Executive Chef James Walt will be bringing that incredible outdoor dining experience to two new locations for the Araxi Longtable Series.
Each longtable event has space for 300 people and will feature local ingredients served up into a four-course menu thanks to Chef Walt and his team. Each event will have a cocktail reception at 3:00pm followed by dinner which will be paired with BC wines.
