For Ginger’s last Wednesday-night Drop-In Dinner at The Dep, she’ll be visiting Spain for inspiration. Cocido is kind of like the Spanish version of the French cassoulet – a rich and comforting stew of meats, chickpeas and potatoes (an all-veggie version is also available). It’ll be served with a side of tapas: pa amb tomaquet, a Catalan-style bruscetta/tomato pizza; chorizo in rioja, smoked sausage cooked with onions & red wine -or- classic Spanish tortilla, made with eggs, potatoes and olive oil; and a small side of green salad.

Ginger Dean has been an amazing and integral part of The Dep since the beginning. Starting out as our brunch chef, then later heading up our Wednesday night Drop-In Dinners, her amazing food and generous spirit reflect everything that The Dep is about. Ginger will be moving to B.C. in April to help her step sister with an organic farming project on Salt Spring Island, so this will be her last dinner at The Dep for the foreseeable future.
As much as we’re going to miss Ginger, I am very excited to announce that Quinn Cruise (remember her amazing Japanese Hambaagu?) will be taking over the Wednesday night slot and the PWYC format, so Ginger’s tradition of great, affordable Wed.-night dinners will keep on going strong.
