AURA Waterfront Restaurant chef prepares Chorizo

You’ve survived months of over eating,  your exercise dvd’s are stacked in a corner and amassing more dust by the day. Valentines day had come and gone, and that box of chocolates is staring at you from the recycling bin.

So what’s the next event that will leave you with that stuffed feeling.

February 17th till March 6th sees Victoria’s Annual ‘Dine Around & Stay in Town’ with restaurants showcasing them selves with $20, $30, $40 and even Celiac Friendly menus.

To launch this culinary two and a half week expo of gastronomy was the ‘Dine Around Menu Launch’

For $35 you could rub shoulders with some of the bright minds behind the kitchens around town. With the likes of Aura, The Empress & Bengal room, Strathcona Hotel, Blue Crab and many many more all in attendance.

The food that these guys and gals were creating in their 2 foot area was stunning and my hat was off to them.

Strategically placed in the center of the floor was a selection of wineries showing off their wares. It was great to see so many BC wines all present, but was disappointing to see the island under represented with some notable island names missing.

It was a great event for people who’d like to have an sneak peak of what these brilliant folks have come up with. But be prepared for tight quarters with little room to move; and be ready to come up with some intriguing  ways to juggle your plate, glass and papers.

Thank you goes out to Rod Phillips at Liquor Plus who provided the tickets to this event.
