Vegan Dine-Out at Alta Bistro

In Whistler we don’t have any vegetarian or vegan restaurants so we get creative and make our own!  Inspired by one of our previous dine-outs, our friend Nalini got in touch with her friend Ed, the chef at Alta Bistro, and asked if he was interested in creating a vegan dinner for our group. He was, and he did an amazing job!

We were treated to a specially created vegan menu with 2 options for the first course, 2 options for the main course and a set dessert. The creativity, textures and flavours of each dish were incredible, and of course we all tried each others’ to make sure we didn’t miss out on trying all the dishes!

Although Alta Bistro doesn’t usually have vegan options on their menu, they are happy to create something for vegans. It’s best to call the night before if you can, but you can also just show up. They aim to use seasonal ingredients as much as possible, so the menu does change with the seasons – altabistro.com/
