Science World, in partnership with La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and select wineries from BC’s Golden Mile Bench, presents its inaugural food and wine event, Pairings. This gourmet evening, with a dash of science, takes place on June 13th and explores the fascinating science behind food and wine pairings while supporting Science World’s Super Science Club.
Pairings at Science World
When: Wednesday, June 13, 2018, 6:30pm to 10:00pm
Where: TELUS World of Science (1455 Quebec St, Vancouver)
Tickets: Tickets are $125 and available online now. Price includes a $50 tax receipt. Must be 19+. Please enjoy responsibly.
Participating restaurants: Miradoro Restaurant at Tinhorn Creek, Showcase Restaurant & Bar, Notch8 Restaurant & Bar at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Chau Veggie Express

Event goers will sip on a selection of fine wines from Oliver’s Golden Mile Bench, the wine capital of Canada, while savouring delectable gourmet bites prepared by some of BC’s most renowned chefs and restaurants from the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver. What makes this event so unique is the science behind the food and wine pairings. Scientific food and wine pairings are created using chemistry principles such as mixing acids and fats, sugars and spices, and then using alcohols and tannins to compete with the intensity of the food.
Tickets to Pairings include an exclusive viewing of Science World’s newest exhibition The Science Behind Pixar, live demonstrations, a battle for the Best Dish, a silent auction, live music and hands-on Science World activities.
Proceeds raised will benefit Science World’s Super Science Club:
Super Science Club is an award-winning, after-school program that provides science and technology activities to underserved students in grades 1–7. Science World’s goal is to inspire underserved children to develop a long-term interest in science and technology. The program now reaches twelve schools across Vancouver and the Fraser Valley and reaches close to 900 elementary students.
