For a self-guided culinary tour, venture out to the Cowichan Valley and Saanich Peninsula – both rich farming areas are known for their commitment to “slow food,” and their abundance of farmers markets, farms, orchards and wineries. Find farmers markets in downtown Victoria too.
And don’t miss the cooking schools here in British Columbia’s capital city. Take Victoria cooking classes that incorporate local ingredients and produce dishes ranging from vegetarian to Italian.
