Science World is pleased to present, in partnership with La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs and select wineries from B.C.’s Golden Mile Bench, its inaugural food and wine event, Pairings—a gourmet evening with a dash of science, on June 13. This event explores the fascinating science behind food and wine pairings and supports Science World’s Super Science Club.
Event goers will sip on a selection of fine wines from Oliver’s Golden Mile Bench, the wine capital of Canada, while savouring delectable gourmet bites prepared by some of B.C.’s most renowned chefs and restaurants from the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver. What makes this event so unique is the science behind the food and wine pairings. Scientific food and wine pairings are created using chemistry principles such as mixing acids and fats, sugars and spices, and then using alcohols and tannins to compete with the intensity of the food.
Tickets to Pairings include an exclusive viewing of Science World’s newest exhibition The Science Behind Pixar, live demonstrations, a battle for the Best Dish, a silent auction, live music and hands-on Science World activities.
Proceeds raised will benefit Science World’s Super Science Club, an after-school program that provides science and technology activities to underserved students in grades 1–7.
