A history in full.

B.C.'s culinary resort.

Taku Cookery on Quadra Island offers hands-on culinary experiences and personal instruction from renowned B.C. chefs.

Into oblivion.

I had an iPod once but I dropped it in the toilet. Now Apple has done the same. It’s probably the only time I’ve ever been ahead of the curve.

Style

Fits like a jacket.

This morning at Max Mara’s Pacific Centre location, an unveiling: Sartoriale, a new tailor-made suit project from the Italian brand. Being the only metropolis in North America with three Max Mara stores, the city is well-suited to, well, suits.

Courting the Vero.

The BC Cancer Foundation is holding a special noontime event called Hope Couture on Wednesday, September 10 to raise the funds needed to purchase a machine called the Vero.

The lunch bag.

The brown paper bag: a receptacle for packed lunch or sheath for liquor. Whatever way you use it, this waxed canvas bag by AW by Andrea Wong is a delightful reinvention.

Dining

Gelato masters.

Along with its award-winning gelato, the new Bella Gelateria in Yaletown will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including Napolitano Pizza and Gelatinis (delicious gelato martinis).

And other laughable laws.

Now that Labour Day has come and gone, perhaps you have noticed that people are behaving differently towards you. The reason, probably, is that you are still wearing white.

Culture

Carmen is big box office.

There are certain iconic masterworks in the opera firmament that are the reason opera companies can still exist. Near the top of that list has to be French composer Georges Bizet’s Carmen.
