It’s no secret that Whistler has a long-standing crush on food and drink – evidence of this can be seen in the multitude of awards and accolades won by Whistler restaurateurs and the wine, liquor, beer and cider choices from the B.C region. Whistler has also become a hub for health and wellness, inspired by the natural bounty all around.  All this and more synthesizes in a grand spectacle and celebration every November at Cornucopia, Whistler’s celebration of food and drink.
