Eat, drink and be merry at the Eat! Vancouver Food and Cooking Festival, a supersized foodie fest where chefs, beer and wine makers, cookbook authors, food artisans and more are serving up a weekend of sumptuous tastes.
Travel the world at the International Culinary Stage, discover potent potables from sake to Caesars at the Grapes & Hops stage, sip a tasty cuppa from a champion barista, then learn a few tricks from celeb chefs including the Food Network's David Rocco, Top Chef Canada's Dale McKay and Iron Chef Rob Feenie.
The fest also offers cooking classes where you can learn about everything from sharpening your knife skills to fluffing your omelettes.
Once you've worked up an appetite, head for the Bite of Vancouver area, where you can sample dishes from the city's finest restaurants for just four bucks a pop.
Fido and Fifi feeling left out? Pick up raw food, treats and chewies in the Pets Eat! Too area on your way out.
Eat! Vancouver runs through Sunday at BC Place.
