Returning the first week of April to tempt your taste buds are Bel’s famous hot cross buns ($2.80) to take home to share with loved ones. These traditional treats are a must-have for the holiday. To avoid disappointment, pre-order at BelCafe.com as they sell like hot cakes – or buns – on Easter weekend. Adorable solid chocolate rabbits ($12.80) are available to take home as well – unless you finish it en route! And the pastel-coloured Easter themed marshmallows ($6) make a soft, bouncy treat for children and adults.

Voted by Bel Café fans, the newest macaron flavour to adorn our shelves is Apple Pie ($2 each, $16 for eight). Made for sharing, get on someone’s good side with the lime and coconut cake ($12.50), which is reminiscent of tropical flavours and perfect for springing our taste buds back to life. For smaller bites, try Bel’s delightfully packaged chocolate-covered confections that make the perfect on-the-go snacks: dark chocolate caramelized hazelnuts ($10.50) and milk chocolate almonds ($9.50). Bel Café’s new spring items will be available from April 14th.

GOODS: Two “H’s Blend” Wines Released at Hawksworth Restaurant & Bel Cafe

Hawksworth is located in Rosewood Hotel Georgia at 801 West Georgia St. | www.hawksworthrestaurant.com

The GOODS from Hawksworth

Vancouver, BC | The Hawksworth Restaurant team added another arrow to their epicurean bow this week, with the launch of H’s Blend, a handcrafted and accessible wine blend, available exclusively at Hawksworth Restaurant and Bel Café. Under the watchful guidance of winemaker John Weber of Cawston’s family-run Orofino Winery in the Similkameen Valley, H’s Blend is a light and refreshing offering of both red and white wine – 100% Gamay from two separate vineyards, and a blend of 50% Pinot Gris and 50% Riesling, also from grapes grown on Similkameen vines – producing a lively and juicy bistro-style red and a distinctive and delicate white, with flavours of citrus and pear.

The relationship between Hawksworth Restaurant team and Orofino Winery dates back to 2008 when Jay Whiteley, Assistant Wine Director, joined the Orofino team for a hands-on experience on the crush pad. Inspired by the Orofino approach to making real wine to be paired with ingredient-driven, locally-sourced, flavourful food (Orofino is also home to the annual 1.6 mile dinner), the family-run vineyard became the perfect choice for Hawksworth’s own label.

“This is a true testament to the skill and relationships held by our sommelier team,” says David Hawksworth, upon the launch of H’s Blend. “We are proud to align with one of BC’s most respected wineries, using grapes from Canada’s most distinctive appellation to create our own exclusive wine blends.” Read more
