Connoisseur of locally-produced foods, Don Genova officially launches his book April 24 at the Victoria Public Market.

A tasty read

Don Genova celebrates his new book Food Artisans of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands at 7pm on April 24 at the Victoria Public Market.

Vancouver Island food and travel writer Don Genova raises a glass of (local) wine to his new book Food Artisans of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands at 7pm on April 24 at the Victoria Public Market.

We should all toast with him, as Genova has delightfully raised the bar on helping the average eater become a learned connoisseur of locally-produced foods.

From bakeries and beverages to “suggested Saturday sojourns” Genova covers the gamut of delicacies being produced in our area and – most importantly – when and where to find them.

From the butcher to the baker to the salami maker, Genova introduces the reader to those among us with a passion for food that goes far beyond the average.

Lucky for us, Genova’s traveling taste buds also work on a budget and he generously includes easily accessible produce that won’t break the bank. Add to that several handy maps pinpointing local food artisans, a few tasty recipes and you’ve got your weekend planned. Salute!

Tickets to the launch of Food Artisans of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands are available at eventbrite.com
