The Green Star is awarded to those individuals and businesses that champion the regions food and drink scene. The full results of our efforts will be revealed next spring with the release of Eat Magazine’s, Local Food and Drink: Victoria and Vancouver Island by Bill Jones and Gary Hynes. The first recipients of our award are fittingly Sinclair and Frederique Philip and the team at Sooke Harbour House (www.sookeharbourhouse.com). Sinclair is referred to as the godfather of the local, seasonal and ethical food movement in Canada and has been walking the green trail long before it was cool. Frederique is the stylistic and artistic director of the Inn and one of the most elegant people we know. For over 20 years their philosophy of local products and support of regional economics has been the mantra of the business. The results have attracted global accolades, countless awards and built a unique and truly wonderful treasure for our community. Congratulations to the team and accept our gratitude for your immense efforts.FolksFood HeroesRestaurant NewsVancouver Island Food Scene SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Cynthia Annett-Hynes ...
