By the time you read this, I’ll be en route to an extended – and snowy – weekend getaway to two of the most beautiful places Vancouver Island has to offer with one of the best people Vancouver has to offer.
Tonight I’ll be at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria judging the Shaken and Stirred culinary competition, pitting two amazing chefs from the Fairmont family against each other. I’m looking forward to amazing dishes and fantastic cocktails in what promises to be one delicious evening, so feel free to follow my updates and pictures on Twitter.

Tomorrow we’re pointing the wheels northwest and, after a quick bite in Nanaimo, will be spending the rest of the weekend comfy and cozy at the Black Rock Resort in Ucluelet. A few days of nothing more than sunshine, crashing waves and crisp air is exactly what I need. I hope to have stunning photos and charming stories to tell next week, so stay tuned…
