Culinary Stage: Cicerone Vs Sommelier
Beer vs. Wine. Which is better? You be the judge! In the age-old love affair between food and wine, has beer been nudged off the dinner table? Cicerone or Sommelier... who will win? Join Jack Crompton of Whistler Debates as he hosts a scrappy and scrumptious multi-course match-up between world-class experts in their fields. Set on Cornucopia's Culinary Stage attendees will enjoy a multi-course tasting, each course being paired with both a wine and beer. Held under the Munk Debate format, the audience votes on their way in, then again after the showdown and whosoever sways the most votes in their direction will be named the winner. And the rest, as they say, is history.
