While up in Whistler this weekend for Cornucopia events, we stumbled across a special wild tasting menu at Alta Bistro. We just have one question: why did we wait so long to visit this place?! Food and service were both fantastic.

The locally sourced tasting menu included flavourful combinations in each dish - from wild boar bacon with steamed dungeness crab and pine mushroom custard in kombu consumme, to roasted ling cod and fried Humboldt squid. We supplemented with add-ons like fresh shaved pine mushroom, and a decadent elk tartar cannoli with chocolate vinaigrette and chicken liver parfait.

At $79 for a 5 course chef's tasting menu, it's reasonably priced enough that we can start planning our next visit soon.

With Disney+ on your screens and Frozen 2 on its way to the theatre, this is the perfect cake-topper for the season. The @hiltonvancouvermetro is transforming into a winter wonderland where you and your littles can enjoy a royal tea party with Elsa and Anna. Tickets for 2019 are sold out but they just added two dates for January 2020! Link in bio. ❄️ ⛄️ .

Holy. Moly. This place is the best hole in the wall spot we've been to in a long time.  Every dish we had sang a sweet Thai song. We will be be visiting time and time again, and so should you.

Another mystifying show by @cirquedusoleil, this time with hoop diving, giant treadmills, and lots of water. Luzia runs to December 29, with tickets starting at $54 - a steal for a night of incredible live entertainment full of laughter, cheers, and awe.

Such a treat to have Dante in town for a quick popup at Homer Street Cafe. The legendary New York institution was recently named the World's Best Bar this year, and the bartenders brought their A game on the road with these tasty cocktails. They're here for one more night tonight!

Sake steamed clams. Everything at @ichiro_japanese_restaurant is delicious! It can be a trek out to Steveston but to us, Ichiro is worth it.

We go out to eat, a LOT. But we've also been enjoying throwing more casual gatherings at home. It's extra relaxed, people can show up in their sweatpants if they so desire (and they usually do.) This was Mediterranean night: paella (pans are from @gourmetwarehouse, inspo from our friends @paellaguys), grilled sardines topped with shallots, walnuts, and parsley (inspo from @thewalrusbar down south, what's good @visitseattle!? ) and grilled octopus (inspo via @ricardocuisine). Now that the chillier weather has arrived, have you been cooking more?
