Up and coming local chef Juno Kim, of Juno Kim Catering, has teamed up with the nice folks at Milano Coffee Roasters for a pop-up dinner series this summer, which I’m honoured to be hosting. Their second event is scheduled for July 16th.
I attended the first one, held at Milano’s warehouse-chic Gastown location, and can tell you I’m really looking forward to dinner number two, which might be even cooler as it’ll be set on Milano’s 8th Avenue patio with a view of Mount Pleasant and Vancouver’s twinkling lights.
