Fall Flavours Highlights from Day One

No time to chit chat...suffice to say Fall Flavours started off with a bang yesterday and before heading out to more fun today I thought I'd share a couple of photos from yesterday's highlights...
Chocolate Making Workshop at Island Chocolates in charming Victoria-by-the-Sea. That's Eric, who with his sister Emma and their mom Linda spent the afternoon teaching us all about chocolate and how to make it....

Somehow my new camera keeps putting these mango cream filled chocolate cups on their side. Perhaps it's just that this little taste of heaven has you doing cartwheels.

Family Style Dinner at the Culinary Institute of Canada where 150 of us ate straight out of Chef Michael Smith's latest book The Best of Chef At Home....all 120 recipes served in pots and casseroles for sharing "family style"....and of course we all got signed copies of the new book!

As the White Rabbit in Alice and Wonderland would say....'no time to chat....I'm late, I'm late, I'm late for a very important date" A morning with Chef Calvin Burt and surprises in the afternoon before heading out to a 17th century style heritage feast at Roma at Three Rivers.

Sounds like a great workshop.
