Vancouver Bartenders Win Gifford Competition in France
Word received from wine and food writer Judith Lane who has just served as one of the international judges at the Giffard Cocktail Competition in Angers, France...
"Dani Tatarin of Gastown's Keefer Bar and Justin Tisdale, of Market at the Shangri-la Vancouver, just placed 1st and 2nd against talent from around the world.
Canadians/Vancouverites got big cheers from their just-met fan club of competing bartenders.
The wows...simply great balanced cocktails and maybe Tatarin's double shake and Tisdale's use of a raw egg.
Judges were suitably impressed."
More details and photos will be posted shortly.
