Whistler’s Cornucopia: It’s a Wrap!

The fact that I’m slowly starting to emerge from my food and wine coma can only mean one thing: Cornucopia is officially over. We last left off at the end of the first weekend of Whistler’s food and wine (and beer and spirits) festival, but the fun was far from over. While the first weekend […]

Whistler’s Cornucopia: The First Weekend

With bellies full and wine-stained teeth, it’s safe to say that the first weekend of Cornucopia has officially come to a wrap. Now in its 18th year, Whistler’s food and wine festival is a well-oiled machine. The schedule offers a balanced mix of lavish parties, restaurant-hosted lunches and dinners, food and wine seminars, culinary competitions, […]

Tasty Indian Bistro

The hallmark of a successful restaurant is not whether you can fill the tables each night, but if you can get your customers to come back. Tasty Indian Bistro has been satisfying Surrey and Delta residents for 15 years now. Eating in Vancouver was invited to attend a private dinner celebrating the restaurant’s addition of […]

Burgundy Restaurant Media Dinner

Last week, EiV was invited to a menu tasting at Burgundy Restaurant in Gastown. Situated on West Hastings between Abbot and Carrall, this European boutique-style restaurant & bar boasts a formidable menu that belies its size.

Blackbird Public House Annual Spot Prawn Boil

Earlier this month, EiV was invited to attend a spot prawn boil hosted by the Donnelly Group at The Blackbird Public House & Oyster Bar on Dunsmuir St. In its second year, this messy but delicious dining event was quickly sold out which is a testament to how many people love spot prawns. Alongside the […]

Calabash Bistro Brunch Preview

Late last week, EiV was invited to attend a special media preview of the brunch menu at Calabash Bistro. I had been to this Caribbean-themed restaurant once or twice before but never knew they served brunch. Situated just off of West Hastings and Carrall St., this venue has quickly become a local favourite for great […]
