Good things to eat


This weekend was the fourth installment of the Rifflandia Music Festival in Victoria BC

Check out this link if you would like a closer look:  Click here

But this is what I really was interested in, the food vendors!   Click here  to see a little bit about those!

What was really nice is that they were all selling more or less healthy fare, I didn’t see a hot dog in site!  And there wasn’t even a whiff of that deep fried “Carnival smell” anywhere.

Don’t get me wrong, the Carnival smell has it’s place in the world too, but in Victoria where it is pretty “groovy” people love the healthy stuff.

Now I have to admit that I was a little spoiled at this event because I “know a guy” and had the extreme privilege to spend my time in the VIP area.  Which was pretty much like being at any other part of the festival except there were couches, snacks and our own private food concession!  And no line ups for beer!

The snacks were very nice.

The snacks were from Charelli’s Cheese Shop and The Whole Beast Charcuterie.

Food at Rifflandia

I had the most wonderful roast pork Panini from The Whole Beast.  It was the best grilled cheese with meat I can remember having in a long time!

It was so good that I gobbled it up and totally forgot to take a picture!

People were loving the snacks!

This has absolutely nothing to do with food but I just thought it was so cute and a perfect example of just how “groovy” Victoria is!   An ATM in a hippie van!!

Oh yes, I nearly forgot!   I did eventually make it out of the snack tent!   The music was really great too!  Can’t wait till next year!!!
