Destination Canada – Wining and Dining
A couple days ago we had a luncheon with Destination Canada, and it went above and beyond our expectations. We walked into Acme Studios to find Mayssam, a cool as hell DJ spinning awesome music as a video of Canadian wildlife played on the wall. Eric Pateman of Edible Canada walked us over to mixologist Nader Chabaane who was creating cocktails we could have never dreamed up. Look at that mini ice bowl holding the raspberries! Pateman then took us over to culinary expert Scott Jaeger who was whipping up unbelievable bites.
I don’t know much about oysters and caviar, but I slurped both the butter coated and sake soaked shells, and spooned the salty caviar wondering how Canada isn’t well-known for both! I also basically drooled over the warm smoked sockeye salmon and Atlantic lobster stew. Top it all of with wine expert Felix Leonard-Gagne serving up some of Canada’s award-winning wine. Apparently these wines aren’t easy to come across, but when sommelier Felix gets a hold of them and pours them aplenty, I’m a very happy camper.
We will soon be planning our first WanderLust Girls trip to Canada, so stay tuned on which region we pick!
