Culinaire shares ‘vision and passion’ of Vancouver Island’s food, beverage professions

The 11th annual event comes to the Victoria Conference Centre March 26, 2020

A showcase of food and beverages prepared by 60 members of Vancouver Island’s renowned hospitality community will feed the foodies in the 11th annual Culinaire this spring.

“Culinaire is a hospitality focused event that gives restaurants and producers the ability to be on stage and share their vision and passion to a captive audience of those who appreciate great food and drink,” said Scott Gurney, creator of Culinaire. “Victoria’s restaurant and beverage scene is always fresh and exciting, but so vast in size it can sometimes be daunting. This event gives our guests the opportunity to try an assortment of restaurants and beverages at their own pace, and do so in a relaxed environment.”
