Summer for Winter
Humans have preserved food since the beginning of time, capturing the full energy of the sun to dehydrate herbs, fruits, meat and fish or, in cold climates,
using ice to freeze food so that we could survive the barren
winter months. Sure, we have year-round access to almost
everything now, but nothing can beat the taste of local
produce preserved at the height of its deliciousness!
Blessed with an abundance of seasonal roots, fruits,
berries, and game, talented Whistler chefs work hard
throughout the summer months to preserve B.C.’s
bounty and bring a taste of sunshine to winter plates.
Whether it’s using traditional techniques handed down
through generations or harnessing the best modern
methods, you can enjoy the flavours of summer, even
though the snow is falling.
