This week I discussed tips to get ready for Christmas with a cocktail recipe, oyster hints and party tips with Trish Magwood of the Food Network's partydish show.
Chris Field was the oyster shucker, he works at Bearfoot Bistro in Whistler, www.bearfootbistro.com.
I featured the Rosemary Swizzle, a cocktail made using Crabapple Wine from Elephant Island Orchard Wines in Naramata. Check their website to find out where they are sold. Some stores have recipe cards for the Crabapple Wine and their Apricot Wine as well.
To find out more about the smoked oysters I talked about contact David Nikleva at Cortes Gold Seafood Company. firstname.lastname@example.org
