Spring Time is Good Food Time in Victoria

Spring is time for renewal. The farmers in the area bring us produce and the fishers provide us with the bounty of the sea. It is a great time to eat! If you are in town or coming to town, check out these items.

Travel With Taste’s Culinary Walking Tour starts each 1st and 3rd Saturday morning during the months of May through September at 9:30am in downtown Victoria. Aspiring culinary tourists will taste their way through town beginning with a little ‘brunch’ at Willie’s Bakery and Café. Next we experience a structured tea tasting at Silk Road. The walking tour will be about three hours with a cornucopia of tastes along the way such as; cheeses, meats and house-made pâtès at Choux Choux Charcuterie, pastries at the iconic Dutch Bakery, Victoria landmark Roger’s Chocolates, plus a wine tasting at the Artisan Wine Shop. Cost is $89 per person plus GST/HST with 5-6 tasty stops. Wear comfortable shoes. Bring empty stomach.

Payment will be processed in advance and a receipt will be available to you on the tour if requested. You will receive confirmation by e-mail along with details to meet. Please note that 8 persons are needed to run the tour. Tour can be cancelled 24 hours prior without sufficient advance reservations.

Peter Greg from the
Floating Fish Store at Fisherman's Wharf has put a hot kitchen in the lower level of our store to compliment the cold kitchen upstairs. Since Spot Prawn season has just begun they will be offering these wonderful local delicacies for people to take home and cook themselves, or we can cook a pound of them in garlic butter and serve them with focaccia to eat right here on the dock. It really doesn’t get much more West Coast than that!
