Spring is no doubt the season to kick off a line-up of noticeable food and wine events. With Eat! Vancouver becoming a week-long Food + Cooking Festival, the coming week will surely be a fun-filled one for food and wine enthusiasts.
No longer just a weekend event, Eat! Vancouver is a world class food expo taking place throughout downtown Vancouver. While BC Place is still the main pavilion to soak in the W5 of today’s food trends and culinary scenes, numerous workshops, collaborative chef dinners featuring top chefs from across the nation, a hospitality symposium and a pastry panel will be unveiled as of today.
One of the main events to take notice is the Canadian Flavours Gals happening at the Terminal City Club this Thursday (April 30th) from 7 – 9:30pm. Famous chefs from 15 supremely-ranked restaurants, including the crowned Wolf in the Fog of Tofino will be flashing their wares and skills under one roof to showcase the best of Canada.
With superb food come great wines. Up the hill from the town of Penticton is the welcoming Naramata Bench, one of the premier wine growing regions in the Okanagan Valley, home to many acclaimed wineries known for their lush vineyards, modern tasting rooms and top-rated restaurants. The Bench gives visitors luscious reasons to visit and explore. 24 growers-turned; youthful or established wineries teaming up with achieved winemakers to craft wines that represent not only the distinct Okanagan terroir but the wineries’ own characteristics and wine-making philosophy. Folks come to taste and embrace what Mother Nature has granted to the Naramata vineyards and wineries. For those who may not make it up there in the near future, do not be despair – they are going to the Canadian Flavours Gala this Thursday, thanks to Naramata Bench Wineries Association. This new event as part of the 13th EAT!Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival promises to be the event-extravaganza that die-hard foodies should not miss.
