There’s an unspoken collective agreement that December is the time where you get to gorge yourself on as much as you want, which makes it an especially wonderful time to share great food and beverages among all the people you like best. The diversity of the ingredients and of the people in our corner of the world makes shopping anything but local totally unnecessary – so while you’re thinking of treats and decadent dinners, why not have all that blissful gluttony also support creative locals who are super passionate about feeding it?

WestCoastFood.ca reaches across the Lower Mainland from Metro Vancouver to The Fraser Valley to tell food stories about the ingredients, the place, and of course, the growers, makers, and business owners that make it all thrive together. You can find pretty much anything you’re craving made right here.

Totally Local, Totally Delicious New West Coast Foodie Website

WestCoastFood.ca

Lush forests, lively oceanfront, rushing rivers, sprawling fields, and a bright mix of cultures set the table for limitless culinary possibility from bustling Vancouver to the lively Metro suburbs to the calm Fraser Valley. There’s enough to keep a foodie chomping their way around our west coast for years, and there’s a new guide to what’s delicious and where you can eat it.

West Coast Foods is dedicated to looking beyond the city’s centre to uncover the restaurants, farms, ingredients, and people who make up Canada’s west coast culinary styles. For example, have you heard of the coffee hut in White Rock with small batches of beans that are roasted on a converted barbecue? Do you know where to grab a hearty pre-hike breakfast on the North Shore? Would you like to try your hand at an apple pie recipe straight from multi-generational apple farmers in Abbotsford? Have you been to Coquilam’s Koreatown?

Arm yourself with the website, and start exploring from Vancouver to the valley. (New posts are up each week!)

If your mouth is watering from south of the border and you are looking for a culinary getaway, enter our West Coast Food Sweepstakes for your chance to win a trip up on Amtrack, a two-night hotel stay, and a full day guided feast of a tour!

 

Fiesta! It’s time for Carnaval del Sol and Latin American Week in Vancouver

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Latincouver collective are back with an amazing 12 days of fun and entertainment with a Latin flavour across the city, culiminating in the grand Carnaval del Sol at Concorde Pacific Place. We spoke with the festivals’s Mónica Cortés to find out more.

What’s Latincouver all about?

We started online as a place for Latinos to connect as ‘Latincouver’. Unlike many immigrant groups, we’re pretty spread out across the city–Colombians are not the same as Chileans or Mexicans– but there are around 100,000 Latinos in Metro Vancouver so we wanted a place for us to meet and a space for everyone else to gather and check out our culture. The festival has grown from just one day in 2009 to the 12 day event that it’s now become with its very own proclamation from the City of Vancouver and the BC Government. Continue reading:
