Milestones in Surrey goes big with cheese – and wine – in Guildford

Restaurant chain celeberates Big Cheese menu with wine pairing event at Guildford location Sunday

SURREY — Some big cheeses were invited to a special wine and cheese event at Milestones in Guildford.

The restaurant chain was promoting its Big Cheese menu event – one of four special limited-time menus offered during the year. Milestones invited representatives of community groups to take part.

“Cheese is such an awesome item to build a menu around,” said Milestones executive chef Jeff Dell. “With so many different cheeses to choose from to develop so many unique, interesting flavours, it was a lot of fun to create and it will be even more fun for our guests to come to Milestones to experience for themselves.”

Along with the five unique dishes inspired by cheese from all over the world, guests also enjoyed complimentary wine pairings with each dish – Arterra Wines Canada was there, as was a professional sommelier.

Jaivin Khatri is Milestones’ local restaurant marketing and community relations manager. He says in addition to standard business procedures such as revamping its menu, connecting more with the community is a direction Milestones took a few years ago.

Khatri said it was after successful fundraisers at the Langley Milestones that the company decided to devote more energy to community.

“Milestones has helped 25 non-profits, raising $151,000 in the last six years,” he said.

Milestones is located at #2001 10355 152nd Street.
