What could be better than live opera and charcuterie? Perhaps a fine olive oil tasted next to one of the creamiest Bries imaginable? Or better yet, all the aforementioned activities in one entertaining afternoon.

An institution to the lucky residents of Oak Bay (and those willing to travel a little ways for great imported goodies), Ottavio Bakery and Delicatessen is celebrating its 15th anniversary in style this Saturday September 15th from 11am to 3pm. Visitors can look forward to  grilled lamb sandwiches, olive oil, coffee and cheese tastings, a special cake and live opera from local baritone, Sam Marcaccini.

While you celebrate along with past employees and Oak Bay’s current mayor, Nils Jensen, be sure to give a congratulations to owners Andrew Moyer and Monica Pozzolo. Browse the handmade breads, specialty pantry items (pasta, balsamic vinegars, etc.), 250 cheese, cured meats, pastries and house made gelato. For a more lingering visit, try the adjoining café to try them all on a traditional antipasto platter or go for one of many different varieties of panini.
