The highly anticipated luxurious food festival, EAT! Vancouver returns to Vancouver’s vibrant culinary scene from November 6 to 11, featuring one-of-a-kind collaborations between U.S. and Canadian chefs from across the country. For anyone who hasn't heard of this annual celebration of all things culinary, this is in my opinion, the definitive introduction into most reasons why represent why Vancouver is such a food lover's paradise.

EAT! Pastry

I will personally be covering EAT! Pastry which is a brand new event for this year. In year's past, the EAT! Vancouver events have generally been about luxurious food experiences or panel discussions, but I'm excited to try all the desserts under one roof. There's some elite brand power here with representation from BETA5, Thierry, and Beaucoup Bakery as well as further out favourites like Chez Christophe and Temper Pastry so this might be your best chance to experience the best pastries Canada has to offer. Some of these places are popular enough that they clog up my Instagram Explore feed on the daily.
