Vancouver chefs boost B.C. economy by buying local for fundraiser




Jan. 26, 2009, Vancouver – B.C.'s top chefs are doing their
part to boost the local economy by buying homegrown ingredients for the BC
Hospitality’s Founders Dinner.



The newest addition to Coal Harbour, Miku Aburi Restaurant,
is playing its part in sustaining the local economy by joining The British
Columbia Hospitality Foundation for 2009's Founders Dinner II on January 26th.

The menu for tonight's second annual BC Hospitality's
Founders Dinner will feature an array of culinary creations from B.C.'s top
chefs using local ingredients such as Miku's local wild Sockeye Salmon
appetizer created by chef Keiichiro Nireda. The dinner offers local chefs a
chance to feature BC suppliers such as Angel Seafoods, one of Miku's seafood
suppliers.

"It is our mandate to help the local economy as much as
possible by tapping into the spectacular ingredients in our own backyard,"
said Tai Hasumi, Miku's general manager. "We are thrilled to be a part of
this event, which not only celebrates B.C.'s local suppliers and restaurants,
but raises funds for an important cause – The British Columbia Hospitality
Foundation."
