Wolf In The Fog at JoieFarm Winery

On September 12, 2015 Wolf In The Fog, voted Canada's Best New Restaurant in Canada in 2014 by the esteemed En Route Magazine, made a special trip to the Okanagan to share some Tofino and Island inspired love.

Owner and Winemaker at JoieFarm Winery, Heidi Noble (former Chef herself) welcomed her Wolf In The Fog friends, Chef Nick Nutting and team out for a day at the farm winery and shared in a Kitchen Mash Up/Take over melding their combined talents together for one fine day in the late summer sun. It was my first opportunity to taste the delicious food genius coming out of Tofino. Thanks Joie, for making it happen! PS. I am quite sure it was the drop dead best value of the summer. Priceless. 

We share the story in pictures:
