Mediterranean Wine Dinner Apr.17 @ The Cove!


We are so excited to announce that we are planning yet another in our series of seasonal Wine Dinners at The Cove. As many of you know, we have been hosting them for many years now and all have been wildly popular! Since Chef Joanne has left The Cove, we have been experiencing a successful transition to the new kitchen team co-led by Chef Sarah Brown. (Follow them @thecovekitchenchronicles on Instagram) For fun, we decided to offer a collaboration with Chef Sarah and Joanne to keep these nights happening. Read the result below…

Thanks so much for your support,

Seamus and all of us at The Cove



The Cove Presents…

Mediterranean Food and Wine Dinner

Enjoy an evening of sun kissed food and wine inspired by the countries surrounding the Mediterranean with some local flare and products as well! The olive groves, serene ocean scapes, warm spicy reds, lush whites and of course the fresh, flavorful cuisine. It’s a dreamy place. Come and celebrate the coming of warm weather. We are excited to announce that our former Chef Joanne Edwards will be returning to collaborate with our current Chef Sarah Brown. Join us with friends new and old.  Wine talk by Andrew Rastapkevicius from Lifford Wine Agency.

What’s Cooking in Westport


Cook together in the community kitchen on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month! What’s Cooking in Westport is on the 1st Tuesday each month (10am-1pm) at the Free Methodist Church! Learn new skills, take home food. Childcare is available.

Join us to try new foods and recipes, share a meal, bring extras home, have a good time, and meet new people in your community. We pick the recipes together, focusing on local, seasonal, budget-friendly ingredients. Some months we have a specific cultural theme, a guest speaker from the community, or a special event.

The group is facilitated by Registered Dietitian, Kate Earl, from Country Roads Community Health Centre. We discuss different nutrition and food safety topics each month and members share healthy eating tips with each other.

The program is FREE. There is no cost to participate. We also offer free childcare. Please ask us if you need help with travel costs. All we ask from you is that you participate in the cooking (and clean up!), come ready to have fun, and be open to trying new foods.


Date :
Tuesday, April 3 & 17, 2018 from 10am to 1pm


Event location :
Free Methodist Church
Westport, ON, Canada
