Sea-to-Sky Feast of Fields: (l) Ganton+Larsen Prospect Winery, (r) Wild Planet Raw Foods

Ok, so I’m allergic to dairy, which means I can’t eat more than a tiny droplet of gelato. Totally not fair.

Plus I shoot these events which means I only have two hands in which to balance a camera, with a glass of some yummy drink, and a pseudo-plate (think bark, oyster shell, or corn husk, depending on the creativity of the restaurant) of superbly delicious bite-size morsels. This usually doesn’t happen. And though I volunteer to be working here, again, totally not fair.

But beyond taste, Dolce Gelato’s product is beautifully decorated, with colours that are striking, as are most of the restaurants products. So, one would think that knowing how fast they run out of product due to the hefty line ups of folks, I would get my butt over there sooner. The thing with the Lower Mainland Feast of Fields is that it’s so huge it really does require an afternoon to leisurely take it all in. One could move faster, and keep an eye on the clock, but that’s not how a relaxing, sunny Sunday afternoon is to be spent.
