It’s becoming known as the Provence of Canada; the Comox Valley, home to over 100 agri-businesses, from cheese and yoghurt factories to honey producers, vineyards and wineries, shellfish growers and bison farms. Today, joined by a few of our good friends, Josée and I spent three hours at Flavour, the North Island’s gourmet picnic, hosted by Coastal Black Winery. We went last year and had a great time sampling dozens of foods and beverages, most of which are produced within a short drive of the Valley.
