The 10 day long ‘Go Blue on South Granville’ culinary event quickly wrapped up July 28 at The Rise Eastery. For this year’s fresh blueberry season, the British Columbia Blueberry Council (BCBC) teamed up with the South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) to celebrate all things blue. A number of South Granville’s restaurants between July 18 to 28th feature local blueberries in both savoury and sweet prix fixe menu. I also participated by creating this super creamy, egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and totally vegan Blueberry Lemon Zest Coconut Milk Ice Cream!
