July 6th, 2019- Tofino Two – The Industrial Way Artisans and The 17th Food and Wine Festival

hello

It’s Tofino Two – The Industrial Way Artisans and The 17th Food and Wine Festival.

  

THE SHOW

Last week’s show was all about  spending weekdays in Tofino.  The Chefs of Tofino / Ucluelet  and Willie Mitchell..The Prince of Tides.

 This week, it’s about the craft artisans on Industrial Way  (Charcuterie, Brewing, Spirits & a very popular bakery.)

Summit Bread Co

Then it’s off to the 17th annual Tofino Food and Wine Festival.  Most wine festivals take place in hotels, conventions centres and meeting rooms.  Not this one.

 

As always it takes place in the Tofino Botanical Gardens.

As you stroll to the many tasting stations you come to realize you’ve left the “gardens” behind and now you’re surrounded by a Rain Forest.

Surreal and very memorable.

I swear the location makes  the wines taste better.  Just saying!

 

As a stark contrast we start the show on Industrial Way in Tofino.

 

Like all other towns and cities, Tofino has an industrial area where craft businesses share space with construction equipment, fishing supplies, boat and floats.

 

As Tina Windsor from Picnic Charcuterie  says of Industrial Way  “there’s no point in putting lipstick on a pig.  It is what it is but still people seek us out.  It’s high class, low brow”

Besides Picnic, we’ll spend time discovering the people and the craft behind Tofino Brewing, Tofino Distillery and Summit Bakery.

Picnic Charcuterie

 

At the Tofino Food and Wine festival we’ll taste and talk with:

Kira Rogers The Food and Wine Fest  Producer, Culmina, Black Market, Pentage, Tantalus/Stoneboat/Summerhill/Township 7 and Burnt Timber.

 

 

 

Then a wonderful surprise,. I bumped into David Gouge  co-owner of Sea Star Vineyards. (Pender Island/Saturna Island)

and  got caught up on one of the really fine winery stories in BC.

 Today’s guests are:

Mulligan Stew June29th 2019- Canada Day Weekend and Jim Cuddy Interview

hello

 

July 1st is Canada Day…

I don’t think it influenced the first hour of The Stew because I had planned
to pay tribute to a lost friend..the Bard of the  Boards…Kelly J/Blake
Fordham.

Leader of Crowbar, one of Canada’s grandest bands.

When all others were wimping out behind Tony Orlando and Dawn/Osmond  wanna
be’s, bands like Crowbar carried the flag of rock and roll.

All passion and grit..belief in the mission they were on.

And at the head of the parade was Kelly J…Captain Canada.  All Fire and no
brake.

Great chops as a lead singer but World Class as a boogie piano player.

Well, the fire finally burned itself out. What we are left with is memories
and his music.

So we play the music..a remember the man.

First, four tracks go

Crowbar with King Biscuit Boy

Then King Biscuit Boy with Crowbar

The Band

And the band Crowbar would open for at Fillmore East Joe Cocker.  Mad Dogs
and Englishmen.

There’s 2 of the greatest voices…Aaron Neville and Mavis Staples – singing
together.

Avett Bros

John Fogerty

John Prine

Norah Jones

Funky Nassau

Jimmy Vaughn

The second hour of the show is all Canadian…

Starting with an Interview with Jim Cuddy who, with the Cuddy Band, just
released their 5th album Countrywide Soul.

Recorded in just 3 days in Jim’s barn in southern Ontario.

Only the very best musicians can create this magic.

Some of the songs are Jim’s from previous Cuddy Band albums and Blue Rodeo
as well.

He didn’t re-record them to claim ownership. He did it because he felt they
were different songs now. They needed a different shape and texture.

8 of the songs are Jim’s

2 cover from George Jones and Glen Campbell (Rhinestone Cowboy)

And two new songs were written for the album.

Life is crazy busy for Jim Cuddy.  He’s playing dates with the Cuddy band
and at the same time hitting the road for a very busy Summer with Blue
Rodeo.

Some songs like  Everybody Cries are unchanged  but they’re deeper and more
meaningful.

Some have quietly transformed such as All in Time. It used to rock like a
truck. Now it glides like an Air Stream.

Just like the guy who wrote the song.

The Canada Day Stew finishes with an all Canadian line-up

Leeroy Stagger

Colin James

Whitehorse

Serena Ryder

Dan Mangan

Then – the finish…

Two outstanding tracks. Two outstanding moments in music history.

First The Last Waltz at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco
Thanksgiving 1976.  I was there.

There came a moment when this all-star American spectacle was taken over by
The Canadians.

Four of the 5 Band members were proudly  Canadian

Neil Young sang

Joni Mitchell sang..then they all sand together on the one song  they
identified with – Acadian Driftwood

Goosebumps my friends.

We finish The Stew on another stage – The Commodore Ballroom. Almost  2
years ago

A concert honoring John Mann of Spirit of the West. John was fighting
Alzheimer’s

Happy Dominion Day  – enjoy every minute

Ep 62 | Jim Cuddy Podcast

hello

Jun 28, 2019

Jim Cuddy has just released his 5th solo album, Countrywide Soul. The record was recorded in just 3 days in the barn at his farm in Southern Ontario. The record features re-recordings of songs he wrote for Blue Rodeo and The Jim Cuddy Band. Terry and Jim walk through a few of the songs on the record, and discuss collaborations with Doug Paisley, Kathleen Edwards, Oh Susanna, and more.


June 29th, 2019- 4 days in Tofino – ( Part One) The Chefs plus Ike & Willie

hello

 

THE SHOW   

When someone says  “Go West ” Tofino is as far as you can go in Canada.

Originally  is was nick-named  “tough city” now shortened to “Tuff City”.  That’s because the road,  which was formidable, ended in Tofino.

For many years stories on this stunning coastline were about the surfing and fishing. Then it started to get noticed as a culinary destination. That’s because the  entire area was loaded with chefs. (The local food truck Tacofino became so popular they moved operations into Vancouver and now have 8 locations including Tofino.)

What’s remarkable is that there are less than 2,000 Toficians in town but almost 500 business licences.

Summer brings what feels like “The World.”  Walking miles of beaches, forest walks here are called forest bathing , swimming, surfing, fishing, diving  and dining have become part of the allure.

1909 Restaurant

This is part one of four days spent in and around Tofino.  Trying to answer the question, what’s Tofino like on a Wednesday or  Thursday?  Is it different from crazy times on the weekend?

Every guest on this show has a story to tell and one of them reveals a surprising announcement.

What doesn’t seem to change is the food and the accommodations.

I found both at the world famous Wickaninnish Inn.   I also discovered their new breathtaking “Howard’s Wine Cellar.”  That’s where we start.

Ep 61| Ewan Currie of The Sheepdogs Podcast

hello

Jun 22, 2019

June 15th, 2019- Top Drop 2019- Victoria

hello

TOP DROP 2019 / FIRST TIME IN VICTORIA

The press release came in loud and clear.

For the very first time Top Drop was coming to Victoria.

Frankly, that’s all I needed to know.

I’ve been happily covering this small wildly successful wine gathering for
Six Years but Top Drop in Victoria is a whole other event. Why? Because
Victoria is a great wine town.

TOP DROP is Vancouver based so they needed a Victoria Host. Turns out the
Vessel crew have been watching this independent, craft wine festival seed
and grow in Vancouver, and spread to Calgary in 2018. This was their year to
launch it in Victoria for ONE DAY .

Victoria International Marina

Top Drop is an opportunity to celebrate authenticity in farming, terroir
and wine, with winery principals from around the globe.

Mirroring Top Drop Vancouver and Calgary’s flagship experience, the public
event is a walk around, grazing-style tasting where attendees enjoy sips
and stories from the principals of international and local wineries. There
has never before been a wine tasting of this scope and caliber in Victoria.

For me and TRR, the voice and face of Top Drop has always been Kurtis Kolt.
Wine educator and Wine writer for the Georgia Straight.

Kurtis and TD

Because of the foul weather, Kurtis and his partners were delayed in
Vancouver and could not attend while I was there.

Once again Kurtis Kolt and his partner Jeff Curry and a sensational team
have convinced some of the very best winemakers to pour at Top Drop.

What they have in common is craft and care!

In Kurtis’ column in the Georgia Straight he said this:

“Each year, our process begins the same. Our team casts out a wide net to
British Columbia-based importers and wineries, asking for winery
applications to participate in the event. First and foremost, Top Drop
wineries must fit with our general philosophy: that wines, indeed, express
terroir or offer a sense of place.

Whether we’re talking vines grown in mineral-rich soils or under
cool-climate growing conditions bringing bright acidity or in sun-drenched
regions offering generous, opulent fruit and so on, we want those elements
to be notable in the glass and for them to have arrived there authentically,
rather than via heavy-handed additions in the winery.

Sustainable farming is also key. There is a high priority on those who
employ these methods while farming their own fruit or who work with growers
who fit the mold.”
