3 things that make you happy – My family, Summer, going out for breaky!

Favourite dinner meal – Pizza and Caesar salad mmm…
My dream visit to Cornucopia means trying as much of the amazing food and drink as possible! That being said, I would probably start with Crush, where I could add to my ever-growing list of favourite wines. After recovering from all of that amazing wine, I’m heading over to Sidecut restaurant for the Mezcal y Maize – Taco Après Party. The Four Seasons team is offering up a trio of inventive tacos to be paired up with one amazing cocktail that is for sure a do not miss!
Rolling out of bed in the morning is always made easier when I have an amazing Brunch to look forward to. The Fairmont’s Bubbles and Brunch has everything you could possible want and more including Bubbly and live music. Araxi’s Big Guns: Viva Italia dinner also encompasses many of my favourite things, from great wine to exquisite Italian cuisine it is sure to have everyone (myself included) leaving happy.
Is it even possible to fit more into one weekend? Well, if I possibly could I would be at the Conference Centre learning something about all of this wine and food that I have been eating. Want to learn how to pair your wine with your favourite pizza? Slice Advice, Pizza Pizzazz will show you how. Or how to be healthier on the days that you are not indulging? Nourish offers many different ideas of how to maintain this healthy balance.
Happy Cornucopia everyone!

To start my dream, weekend off at Cornucopia, you will find me at Nourish: Tech Savvy Release on November 9th getting myself stretched and ready for all the Instagraming that I’ll be doing. The Picnic Grand Tasting is my next stop. Whistler’s restaurants and bars, all have something delicious to offer and it’s a terrific way to eat and drink your way around town without spending loads of money.
Saturday November 10th is all about wine! I’ll spend my day hydrating and preparing for my night at Crush Grand Tasting. I’m looking forward to strolling through the Conference Centre with friends, tasting the Cornucopia Top 25 wines and finding some new ‘go- to’ wines.
What better way to cure Sunday’s hangover with than the Culinary Stage Series featuring Culinary Olympic Gold Medalist Dave Ryan hosted by Sub Zero and Wolf. Chef Dave Ryan is going to treat everyone to the best lunch they’ve ever tasted and most Instagram-able lunch ever plated!
And lastly, I will end my weekend with a plate piled high at With a Twist: Celebrating Centerplates 10 yr anniversary with 10 of their top dishes and a crazy cocktail to match!
