Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tours Giveaway

You can win a spot for you and a guest on an upcoming Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour:

Our gastronomic adventure begins with savoring dim sum from none other than Kirin Chinese Restaurant – Winner of Vancouver’s Best Dim Sum for sixth consecutive years by Vancouver Magazine. You’ll visit Vancouver’s gourmet specialty grocer where you will taste award winning cheese and chocolate paired with a local wine.

Next, we take you to Vancouver’s most popular Italian Restaurant where you’ll savor their Signature Meatball and fresh burrata paired with 2012 Tinhorn Gewurztraminer. We then take you on a short stroll along Vancouver’s gourmet restaurant street and trendy shopping neighborhood.

Then we hop across the street to Hubbub, creator of Vancouver’s top 10 sandwiches for their Pulled Pork Sandwich and beer pairing. You’ll learn how this amazing sandwich is made and experience firsthand the magnetic appeal of this majestic sandwich.

Finally, happy bellies are treated to a sweet ending with the best gelato and sorbetto on the continent at Bella Gelateria, winner of North America’s best gelato.
