It started with a road trip down the coast…

A​ scenic drive through the Pacific Northwest to enjoy the culinary highlights of a nearby city. Inspired by a warm welcome and a unique local connection with our new friends, we decided to invite them to visit us back home.

The idea was simple. Our group of industry professionals will curate a guest list of exciting talent from the west coast. On the third Sunday of every month, we invite you to enjoy a​ pop-up style program serving as a catalyst for edible journeys to thecoastal communities within reach of a road trip along the Left Coast.

Houseguest’​ is a new series that will challenge diners to discover the hidden treasures close to home, build new creative culinary partnerships in nearby markets and showcase the quality of the burgeoning Vancouver Island culinary scene.
