WALTER CAESAR MIX NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

A total Canadian classic cocktail is the ultimate Caesar cocktail. It is a classic and totally crushable. It goes well over brunch and has the snack built right in! It’s Clamato juice based with a hit of vodka with the whole shebang of flavour and spice from ingredients like Worcestershire sauce, horseradish and hot sauce!

 

With over 418 million Caesars consumed in Canada last year, it’s no wonder us Canucks calls the Caesar a good Canada’s national cocktail!

812 Cake & Dessert Burnaby

812 Cake & Dessert Burnaby

812 Cake & Dessert is a cake and dessert shop located in Burnaby. I love the bright white space, wainscoting panels and the fact this cake shop opens until 10 pm. Eight denotes 8 signature cakes and desserts and Twelve steps of baking process required.

The cakes are delicious, moist and airy. The blueberry cake is very flavourful with fresh blueberries. I love that it isn’t very sweet.

 

The strawberry sponge on the hand reminds me a traditional Asian birthday cake. The sweetness again was very mild but it was very pleasing. I love the fresh airy cream.

Mission Hill Winery Estate located heart of British Columbia’s breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country is must for anyone visiting Kelowna for the first time. This trip was one that I will always remember and hold dear to my heart. The breathtaking scenery provides a great place for you to take refuge from the busyness of daily life and escape for while with a delicious glass (or bottle, we don’t judge) of wine. We came here on our second day of our Summerland road trip. After travelling from Vancouver and pre-drinking before at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, we didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. We made sure we made dinner reservations at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant for dinner later that evening.

Upon arriving you are greeted at the gate with beautiful grapes and a stunning view. Even on a cloudy day, the view is mesmerizing. We sat on the grass for a long while talking nonsense, life and just soaking up God’s creation.

After all the wine tasting and touring I was ready to spend my $5 voucher and indulge on flights. 3 for $10 or any single for $4. If you purchase two bottles from the selected list, you can enjoy one tasting also. I really enjoyed their 06 SLC Chard and their SLC Syrah.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the cheese and crackers you purchase close to you. There are many guests whom thinks it is free and communal and start reaching into your purchased food. Most are probably already intoxicated from the wine tour and wine tasting where common sense and mannerism is throw out the door.

And after all that wine drinking you can join us at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant to indulge in some seafood and steak.
