On Wednesday, April 22, under the culinary direction of newly appointed executive chef Damon Campbell, Fairmont Pacific Rim will bring a unique menu of take-home meal experiences filled with all the ingredients and instructions to test culinary chops at home by re-creating signature dishes from the award-winning collection of restaurants and bars at Fairmont Pacific Rim; giovane café + eatery, Botanist and The Lobby Lounge and RawBar. All meal experiences are available for pick-up through Ritual or delivery through DoorDash.
The chefs and bartenders have been hard at work developing how-to’s for creating classics and fan favourites in the comfort of home kitchens, while also expanding on new recipe creations that will allow guests to be the first to test – and taste – the latest developments at home.
