If you haven't yet paid a visit to the busy lunchtime sandwich shop nestled into the heritage building at 370 Cambie St, you're in for a treat. Meat & Bread, front runners of a growing trend of local "fast" food delis, cafes, and daytime eateries, prepare a small selection of tasty meat and grilled cheese sandwiches in a warm, communal environment where they invite you to sip local beer, wine, and cider and finish off with bacon maple ice cream.
For this year's RIPE celebration, we're pairing these guys with the folks at Wenger Sheep Farm up in Williams Lake, producers of naturally raised lamb and a variety of other sheep products. Meat & Bread plan to prepare curry braised lamb sliders on mini versions of their trademark ciabatta buns. We're thrilled to have them and our other restaurant participants at RIPE this year and look forward to what will surely be the meal of the autumn season!
