Whistler Cornucopia

Things are heating up for epicureans in Canada as the weather cools off. This November is Whistler, BC’s Cornucopia, a “celebration of wine and food.” Fans will need to order tickets soon in order to snag a coveted spot at some of the high-profile event’s chef lunches, winery dinners and curated walks through this quaint alpine ski village. There are chef challenges, farm visits, a night market (theme: Taste of Asia), decadent dinner feasts, a stage series, hands-on seminars with cheeky titles like “What Did Chardonnay Ever Do to You?” and even a street truck meet-up.

Participating restos include CRU, Quattro at Whistler and Araxi. Unfolding Nov. 7 to 11 this year, Four Seasons Resort Whistler is joining the hoopla with a cocktail dinner (Nov. 9 at 8 pm) at its Fifty Two 80 bar, a lounge with a heated terrace and live music. Prepare for galas and plenty of after-hours parties—Whistler is known for its buzzing nightlife.
