Savour: 2017 Whistler Cornucopia Recap

Diana Chan November 18, 2017 Event, Whistler

Savour is held at the Emerald Ballroom, lobby level of The Westin Resort & Spa in Whistler. This is their third time hosting this event and it’s quite popular.

In this room, there is a selection of locally-inspired lounge favorites including mac n’ cheese, nachos, pizza, grilled cheese eggplant parm, salads, and veggie plates. Savour will prime your palate for an energizing night of Cornucopia events throughout the 10 days of festivities.

You wander to each station to grab the featured comfort snack. There was about 8 food stations I believe.

Drinks

We were given 4 drink tickets to try different types of local craft beers, wines and spirit samplings.

I got a glass of the Mission Hill Estate Series 2016 Sauvignon Blanc. It has a crisp lemon drop, lemongrass, and lime zest flavours.

Wine was pretty popular but it sure is delicious when paired with comfort food.

Gibbons Whistler had their Après Lager. It’s a crisp easy drinking lager at 4.6% ABV.

Food

There were staff coming around handing out different types of pizza. I paired mine with the Après Lager. A good combination and it was nice to have a break from wine since I had it all day at different Cornucopia events.

It’s not a party without a cheese plate, veggies and dip.This was the healthy section with different salads too.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the event was ok, but some guests did think that there needed to be more variety of food.
