Get Back to Your Roots
Across from the Olympic rings at Whistler
Olympic Plaza, three long-time local
chefs have set down their roots to form a
culinary team at Gnarlyroots Pizza-Café.
Richard and Christy Auer have partnered
with Gurmeet Waraich to create a licensed
café restaurant with an emphasis on fresh
ingredients, many of which are sourced
locally at the Laughing Crow Organics
farm in Pemberton.
“We try to use as much fresh, local
produce as possible, and we also
support local artisan food producers,”
says Richard Auer. At Gnarlyroots you
can expect top-quality produce, chicken,
eggs and meats; fresh herbs grown in the
Auers’ own garden are added to the fresh-baked breads that Christy is famous for.
You’ll find a wide variety of warm,
wintertime comfort food like pasta and
pizza on the Gnarlyroots menu, as well
as healthy, energy-boosting meals full
of nutrition from the salad bar. Their
extensive pizza menu includes classics
like pepperoni, Hawaiian and vegetarian,
and the more unconventional flavours of
beef with blue cheese, tandoori chicken
and chicken bacon ranch. Dine in with
friends and family or order for delivery.
Catering is also available.
