Blue Water Cafe – 6th Annual Unsung Heroes Festival
Vancouver, B.C. – Executive chef Frank Pabst’s Unsung Heroes take center stage atBlue Water Cafe throughout the month of January. A champion of our coastal fisheries, and protective of commercially endangered species, chef Pabst created the Unsung Heroes six years ago. His concept is simple: avoid species that are over-fished, or fished in ways that damage ocean beds or cause unnecessary by-catch, by introducing diners to new experiences and flavours using species found in abundance.
