Exclusive Dinner Series Collaboration - The Underbelly x Urban Calm Coffee x Sage and Plate

The Underbelly x Urban Calm x Sage & Plate

So, about a year or so ago I connected with a mentorship program called The Forum.

I met the lovely Maeghan Summers, Owner of The Underbelly in Kamloops, BC.

Fast forward a year and I had the absolute pleasure of experiencing one of the coolest experiences ever - a collaboration of an exclusive dinner featuring some of Urban Calm’s coffee and teas. 

The superbly talented team at the Underbelly and Sage & Plate in Kamloops created a 5 course meal that infused Urban Calm coffees and teas into each dish!

The talented chefs took our coffees and teas and experimented with foods and flavours and created a completely unique and exclusive dinner menu specifically to highlight and showcase the coffees and teas.
