The opportunity to experience the freshest and most inspired innovations of Vancouver Island’s local culinary scene returns to The Crystal Gardens for Culinaire — Victoria’s Premier Food Tasting Event.
The fourth-annual Culinaire 2013 will feature the most diverse selection of unique restaurants and purveyors of fine foods and beverages Lower Vancouver Island has to offer. A growing list of presenters from Victoria and the Cowichan Valley will serve guests their ingenious creations and signature dishes – a wide variety of delicious cuisine, new restaurants, and rarely-experienced specialty dishes await.
“We are so proud to offer guests such an amazing group of local restaurants and beverage makers to choose from,” says Event Organizer Scott Gurney, “the food scene in Victoria and the Cowichan Valley is thriving. We are so fortunate to have these experts of their craft displaying their talents at Culinaire for all to enjoy—it’s a real treat.”
Guests will sample delicacies from more than 60 exhibitors and will interact with chefs and restaurateurs to receive first hand information about their food ideals, menu concepts, business, and location. Some of our favorite Victoria restaurants will be featured this year including Lure and Vista 18.
Admission to Culinaire includes 10 generous tastings from presenters; additional tastings will be available at a cost of $1 per item. Tickets for Culinaire sell out each year — don’t miss your opportunity to experience Victoria’s Premier Food Tasting Event — see you there!
