Here are five festive ideas to make the season special

The winter holidays traditionally center around seasonal parties and celebrations where we gather and support local restaurants, farmers, and producers. With the 2020 global pandemic, we must find new ways to celebrate the season. Here are five festive ideas to bring cheer and make the season special:

#1: Think Outside the Box

#2. Order-in Something Festive

#3: #EatDrinkLocal Charcuterie

#4: Make it a virtual tasting

#5: Shop Local and Buy BC

There are many creative ways that you can #BuyBC and support the local food scene in your community—think restaurants, bakeries, producers, wineries, breweries, cideries, distilleries, farmers, fishers and suppliers—to name a few! Give a shout-out to your favourite tastes on social media by sharing a photo and tagging them. Use the hashtag #BuyBC and include @BCTastesBetter and @EatDrinkBuyBC so we can share your stories with others and spread the love.

It’s all about doing something new and something good to end the year:

Take a moment to create a new tradition in a year where nothing feels normal. As you raise a glass of something BC to mark the end of 2020, take a moment to reflect on the amazing people that make up BC’s amazing food scene.

Happy Eating’s!
