This year once again the Taste of Italy was organized as always by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Vancouver. The venue chosen for this event is Gopuram (Tower Harbor Centre).
On a beautiful day with clear skies, the view of Vancouver from the marina, to the ocean, to the snow-capped mountains, people-watched was mesmerizing.
The event was divided into two sessions, the first dedicated to hospitality operators and technicians, and the second dedicated to the amateur public.
