News from Scout supporters CinCin, Araxi, West, and Blue Water Café
Vancouver + Whistler, BC | Like yours, our Olympic memories are rife with wonderful individual moments and the spirit that celebrated excellence at every turn. We enjoyed a great mix of our regulars and locals at each of our restaurants – Araxi in Whistler, and Blue Water Cafe, CinCin, and West in Vancouver – along with many visitors, royals and celebrities of an extraordinary diversity.
But in our eyes, the true stars of the Olympics were the athletes.
In concert with Champagne Nicholas Feuillatte, we offered complimentary bottles to every Olympic medalist to accompany the sparkling toasts of thanks they made to friends and family. It made for many intimate moments and we were delighted to share in so many of them in Whistler and Vancouver, including Canadian Gold Medalists Ashleigh McIvor, Maëlle Ricker, and Jon Montgomery, and Canadian Silver Medalists Mike Robertson, Jennifer Heil, Shelley-Ann Brown and Helen Upperton, to name a few.
Araxi and Blue Water Cafe win Cordon d’ Or Cookbook Awards
On the heels of our recent cookbook awards in the Gourmand ‘Best in the World’ competition, Araxi: Seasonal Recipes from the Celebrated Whistler Restaurant and Blue Water Cafe: Seafood have been awarded Cordon d’ Or – Gold Ribbon International Culinary Academy Awards. Two of four awarded in Canada and out of only 16 worldwide, Araxi won ‘Best Illustrated Cookbook’, while Blue Water Cafe took the ‘Best Fish and Seafood Cuisine Cookbook’ category. Congratulations to chefs James Walt and Frank Pabst, and the teams at Araxi and Blue Water Cafe, for these accomplishments.
Why is Saturday, March 27th more romantic than Valentine’s Day? Because on that night, the world turns off the electricity in honour of Earth Hour. For the third consecutive year, our four restaurants will join hundreds of millions of people around the world and will go candlelight for one hour starting at 8:30 pm, in an effort to show it’s possible to take positive action on climate change. To reserve your table, visit: Araxi, Blue Water Cafe, CinCin and West.
