A bunch of our team went up to Pemberton (just North of Whistler) yesterday for the Slow Food Cycle Sunday. Over 4,000 participants in total were on hand for a the event. We stopped at several local organic farms to taste some delicious food. A few of the restaurants in Whistler had booths set up at the farms for their chefs to cook for guests. My favorite dish of the day was the vegetable sandwich from Alta Bistro restaurant located at Ice Cap Organics. And the pulled pork at Root Down Organics was for sure a tour highlight. The 35km bike ride through the Pemberton valley countryside was a delightful way to spend a Sunday. I'm already looking forward to next year as I'm sure more of the Whistler restaurants will get involved.
