We’ve been cooking up a new look and a new menu for this year’s Long Long Table: Surrey’s Community Social.
What exactly is The Long Long Table?
The Long Long Table is a unique event that invites people of all ages who live, work, volunteer, and study in Surrey to sit at the same dinner table and share a five-course meal together.
A networking event, The Long Long Table is a chance to expand one’s personal and professional network. Students, residents, professionals, business owners and other people from all walks of life can gather and mingle over a shared experience. Here citizens who would not normally interact with one another find themselves getting to know one another, making it a “friend-raiser” rather than a fundraiser.
With the success of last year’s event, we will be hosting the 4th Annual Long Long Table: A Surrey’s Community Social presented by Civic Hotel on Tuesday, June 26 at Surrey City Hall Civic Plaza (13450 – 104 Avenue). Networking will begin at 5:00 PM and dinner will start at 6:00 PM. Guests will sit at the elegantly decorated long, long table and be served a delicious five course meal that will reflect A Cosmopolitan Experience..
At the start of the meal, you will be greeted with a delicious assortment of appetizers. From port gelée to baked beet salad with bird eye chili dressing, there will be a variety of flavours to suit your taste. The main course will be a Cuban marinate flank steak paired with sage sweet potato whip and chimichurri. You will finish off with Cointreau crème brulée for dessert.
The food will be prepared by Rajeev Arora, Executive Catering Chef at Civic Hotel. A seasoned chef, Arora has cooked at world-class hotels and restaurants all over the globe—from a cooking show on India to an award winning-restaurant in Mumbai.
“I understand how meals can unify, and I love to bring people together around great food,” says Arora.
As a community social, we strive to make the event accessible for everyone. People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome! To keep the dinner affordable, we have some great community-minded sponsors who have stepped forward. A big thank you to Civic Hotel, VanCity Credit Union, KPU, SFU, SCDC, PWC, David Pel & Company, Eurocan and TD Canada Trust.
