On Sunday April 6th, 2014 we presented our 1st culinary scavenger hunt.  It was a multi-faceted “tasting experience” through downtown Vancouver with clues, challenges, prizes and more. With a “map and clues card” as a  guide, guests had a chance to  taste dishes, bites and treats as well as have a chance to meet the chefs and staff at the various establishments.
