THIS COMPLETE WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE WAS PAIRED WITH THE FINEST local CUISINE: METICULOUSLY PREPARED AND CAREFULLY PRESENTED EMPLOYING MANY GASTRONOMIC TECHNIQUES.
NEXT UP…CORTES ISLAND, IN THE DISCOVERY ISLANDS ARCHIPELAGO JUST OFF OF VANCOUVER ISLAND.
Cortes Island is a very remote location on the northern end on of Vancouver Island. On this island you can experience a 10-12 foot tidal change!
On the Island Matt collaborated with Brent Petkau AKA “The Oyster Man” and a number of local artists in putting on a special dinner at the Tai Li Lodge. Each Course had an oyster component selected by brent, and the overall menu theme was “A CELEBRATION of Local Seafood.” During the dinner local artists showcased their work and writers recited their poems throughout the magical feast.
Never in his life had Matt met someone so passionate about oysters! Brent’s knowledge and love for oysters was contagious. As pictured above, within no time Matt was in the water, collecting the little gems himself.
Matt’s time with Brent really opened his eyes and expanded his knowledge on oysters and mariculture.
This was a trip of a lifetime, with many fond memories and some of the most delicious seafood imaginable!
