Whistler Cornucopia 2009 – It’s That Time Again!

September 10th, 2009 · No Comments

Hello Readers and Contributors!

It’s nearly time again for one of the premier foodie events in the region so I am passing along the details to you. I confess I have never attended this event (yet), mainly due to scheduling issues, but my predecessor is/was a great fan! I am hoping to make an appearance this year but if you go drop in and post your thoughts here. If anyone wants to submit a review of the event we will be happy to consider it for proper publication too!

Given my dual interests in food and sustainability, I thought this looked interesting and worth passing along from Raincity Grill.

Raincity Grill is forging further on their path of sustainability. Building on the success of their many farm to table initiatives, chef de cuisine Peter Robertson has created a new series of culinary events that promise to be the ultimate in “foodie meets farmer” dining. The series is called Market Mondays and aims to bring local farmers and their products closer to Raincity’s table and Vancouver diners. “Chefs and restaurants can play an important role in strengthening communities by building relationships that connect locals to surrounding farms,” says Robertson.
