Well Seasoned celebrates 10 years with new location
For 10 years of marriage, the traditional gift is tin.
Well Seasoned Gourmet Food Store owner Angie Quaale marked 10 incredibly happy years with moving on up to the westside.
Foodies from the Fraser Valley can rejoice: Well Seasoned gourmet food store is now open for business in a bigger, better location at #117 20353 64 Ave., near Costco.
In the past decade Quaale and her store have become nationally-recognized for forecasting foodie trends, carrying cutting edge ingredients for the culinary world, and offering popular cooking classes (often taught by celebrity chefs).
Quaale has, in her own right, become a celebrity chef, offering plenty of grilling, salad and meal options for viewers of Global BC’s morning show.
Actually, she is cooking all over TV shows.
Now with her second decade of business launching, Quaale is set to take the store to the next level.
“You have to do something big when you mark 10 years and I think moving to this great location is pretty big,” remarked Quaale.
The new storefront officially opened Labour Day weekend and Quaale couldn’t be happier with the store’s new signange and look.
The well-stocked store carries the finest in gourmet foods with a specialty in hard-to-find ingredients, spices, sauces, condiments and cookware.
From lobster oil made at Joe Fortes in Vancouver to only the finest balsamic reductions from Italy, the store is a foodie’s paradise.
Well Seasoned also has an in-store kitchen for weekly cooking classes.
The new location will expand class sizes with a new kitchen and class space created with the most up-to-date cooking equipment and individualized learning stations.
With the new classroom, the Well Seasoned team will be able to offer a much upgraded experience for classes, making them fully hands on and interactive.
There will be more customer parking.
And speaking of the parking lot, in addition to her store, Quaale has earned a reputation across North America for her barbecue prowess, and for hosting BBQ on the Bypass, one of Canada’s premiere BBQ events, in the store’s parking lot for the past eight years.
The only barbecue event of its kind that is free for the hungry public, pits barbecue experts against each other to grill the tastiest in brisket, pulled pork and other meat specialities.
The day includes entertainment and tastings, while judges decides who rules the barbecue.
Since the store will not be located on the Bypass anymore, the event will be called “BBQ *OFF* the Bypass.”
Mark your calendar and let the drooling begin for Sept. 14.
