A Gourmet Picnic!

header-logoIt’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.  If you’re interested in learning more about agri-business in the Valley, just click here and here.  The event this year was fantastic, although a little rainy, and I can’t wait to go again!
