EatWild is celebrating wild food in 2020 by kicking off a series of wild game cooking classes. Our inaugural “EatWild Cooks” workshop will be hosted by Chef Mark Perrier. Jody Peck of Wild Northern Way and EatWild founder Dylan Eyers will be leading EatWild Cooks workshops in the coming months. They will share some of their favourite recipes with you and help you develop and perfect your techniques for cooking wild foods.
Join us for an evening of learning about wild food and experience a truly unique dining experience.
We will prepare a three-course dinner together. Each dish will showcase fundamental techniques for preparing wild game. Each dinner will have its own unique menu to showcase the diversity and creativity of wild fare.
Upcoming EatWild Cooks Workshop Dates
Chef Mark Perrier
Mark Perrier, acclaimed Vancouver chef and restaurateur, brings an extensive experience of more than two decades in the restaurant industry, having worked in some very exciting kitchens in Vancouver and a two-star Michelin restaurant in London. A passionate hunter, he has been perfecting his hunting skills over the past three years while developing and adapting recipes to be used with game meat. Mark will be sharing some of his favourite traditional Italian dishes incorporating game meat and will teach fundamental techniques for preparing and cooking wild foods. In addition to learning a ton about cooking, you will get to share a beautiful Italian meal with Chef Perrier.
Jody Peck grew up in the Peace River Valley in Northeastern BC and, from a young age, learned how to butcher and cook game meat as a bush cook (camp cook at exclusive hunting outfitters). Her passion lies in ethically harvesting, butchering, imagining and creating delicious meals that nourish. Cooking is Jody’s connection to the flavours of the land. She spends every fall in hunting outfits in Northern British Columbia, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories, creating wild food experiences for crews, workshops and backcountry events. When at home in Vancouver, she cooks for film and TV, curates and hosts private wild food pop-up events, and works as a private chef. She loves the diversity of remote and city cooking, but regardless of where she finds herself, she always sources the best local and wild ingredients. Learn to cook the Wild Northern Way with Jody.
Dylan is an accomplished wild game chef and hosts regular Sunday wild feasts with his community, as well as “Dine-on-EatWild”, a series of pop-up style dinners celebrating wild food. He grew up hunting and cooking with his father Bud, who was a dedicated hunter and wild chef. Bud learned his cooking fundamentals from his mother Jean and excelled as a chef while studying cooking through his travels around the world. Bud instilled his passion and knowledge for cooking and building a community around the dinner table in Dylan. This was the foundation of what became EatWild. Dylan was recently in South East Asia and will lead the “EatWild Cooks” as we prepare an Asian inspired menu that shows off the diversity and creativity of wild game cooking.
Our workshop is being hosted at The Uncommon Cafe & Commissary in Vancouver. They are described as “a cozy corner cafe found in between Chinatown and Railtown”. Known for supporting local business and promoting sustainability, an incredible space for our EatWild Cooks events.
We will be spending three hours together in the beautiful space at The Uncommon Cafe in Vancouver.
The bar will be open so you can enjoy a beverage while cooking or wine with dinner.
