A Royal Day

On Tuesday I was at Mission Hill Estates Winery for an event called Taste Of BC. The event was to honour the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge. It was such an exciting event to be a part of. There were about 200 guests and suppliers (those people who were there representing the different commodity groups from the BC Agri-Foods and Seafood sector. That is why I was there representing BC Cattlemen’s Association. If we’re being honest the only reason I got to go was because the really important people from BC Cattlemen’s were all at director meetings in Prince George, however I was more than happy to be a second pick in this instance! In addition, I got to take in this event with my blogging partner Erika Fossen’s oldest 2 daughters Adele and Jade Fossen. They were there representing their 4-H club. They were the lucky ones they got to be very close to William and Kate.

There were several top chefs there with tents set up and each chef had prepared a signature dish prepared with all BC products. The 4-H kids got to stand at the front of each tent and the Duke and Dutchess stopped at each tent and talked with the chefs and sampled the food. I had to stand back while they walked past. It was still such great experience and I am so grateful to have been a part of this special day.
