Cornucopia Whistler's Celebration of Food and Wine

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

While we’re busy planning WordCamp Whistler (my official post about the event will be out next week) the village is bursting at the seams with libations and delicious treats this weekend with Cornucopia.

Cornucopia is Whistler’s premier wine and food extravaganza. The annual event is a unique opportunity to mingle, mix and learn from acclaimed chefs, sommeliers, vintners and restaurateurs’ visiting Whistler just for this special celebration… …Now celebrating its twelfth year as one of Whistler’s most popular signature events, Cornucopia returns for 2008 with another spectacular lineup of succulent culinary offerings and glamorous grape galas. [About]

The festival’s events are quickly selling out, like the now fully-booked “Chef’s Trip to the Farm, North Arm Farm”, and “Chef’s Table Luncheon with Rob Feenie, Cactus Club, Beringer”. Although, there’s still room to find out more about the green tea, red wine, and chocolate diet during Sunday’s sessions.

Tonight is the big Crush! Gala grand tasting and will be there; I have a contributing author that will be attending the event on behalf of the site (you may have read her work before) and she’ll be reporting back with photos and a tasty event recap. Cornucopia opened yesterday and will be packed full of events until November 10th.
