Float Home Dinners

My name is Max Cameron and I want to cook you an amazing meal! I’ve cooked professionally in Vancouver, Montreal and Iceland and plan to continue to travel and learn from different restaurants and cultures around the world.

In the meantime I would like to invite you into my beautiful float home in North Vancouver and share my passion for food with you. I am offering 5 to 8 course meals for groups of 8 to 12 people at the float home or I am happy to come into your home to cook for smaller groups. If your group is less than 8 people then I may combine you with another group, so you may even make new friends.

The food that I cook is almost entirely local and seasonal, although i do occasionally drift off this if I draw inspiration from a book or see something in the market that isn’t quite in season that I just have to try. Stylistically my food is a product of where I have worked, with a french foundation from working at the Terminal City Club, to a mix of bistro and fine dining style that I gained from my time in Montreal and the Nordic style of cuisine from my stage at restaurant Dill in Iceland. I bring a little of each of these experiences into every dish that I cook. These dinners are a precursor to my future trips to stage at the top restaurants in the world where I will bring back techniques and styles that I plan to continue to share with you through these events.

The Cascadia Society – Home Share

Are you interested in becoming a Cascadia shared living/homeshare provider?

Home Sharing is a residential option in which a person with a disability elects to share a home with another individual, couple or family who provide ongoing support and assistance. Individuals interested in this option are matched with home share providers living in the community who have been recruited and screened to provide 24-hour residential support in their homes. In most cases, if they choose, home sharing providers will be able to maintain their current employment outside their home.

The Cascadia Society is seeking people who are interested in providing paid home sharing services in their own home for adults of various ages with developmental disabilities. Having your residence in North Vancouver is required. We require people who will help these adults to participate in activities of daily living at home and in the community and who will provide a warm, caring, and positive environment. Successful applicants will have excellent communication skills as well as experience working with individuals who have a developmental disability.

Cascadia homeshare providers recognize the striving of Cascadia and its extended community which situates itself within the philosophy of Anthroposophy and Camphill. Cascadia homeshare providers are a part of the Cascadia homes circle, which provides guidance, training and support.

Compensation is provided on a contract basis and determined by Community Living BC's Guide to Support Allocation.

If you are interested, please contact Patricia Smith at Cascadia.

Joan Bahner: Certified 'Light, Darkness and Color Painting Therapist', according to the teachings of Liane Collot d'Herbois. The macrocosmic threefold nature of Light, Darkness and Color is reflected in the microcosmic threefold aspect of the human being. In a healthy human being there is a healthy meeting of light and darkness that gives rise to a moving color space. Often these aspects of the threefold human being are out of balance, either at birth or at some point in one's life. Through careful observation and application, a therapeutic path can be developed that will help support a client to come to his own sense of well-being and healing.

Joan Bahner offers therapy sessions at her home in Vancouver. She is also available to conduct group painting sessions. Anyone interested in exploring the work of Liane Collot d'Herbois, please contact her and leave a message.
