This is Part 3 of 3 of my recent Vancouver Adventures that I shared with Deborah Moore this morning on AM1470.
To celebrate Canada's 150 birthday this year, Fairmont Hotels has just launched their new Canada150 Afternoon Tea Set. It's a tea set which pays homage to all the different provinces of Canada where Fairmont operates by incorporating each regions distinctive foods. For example, there's the Calgary Stampede corndog made with Wagyu Beef, Montreal smoked meat sandwich, the West Coast Club and Nainamo Bar to name just a few. You can have a cross-country culinary experience just having a relaxed afternoon in the hotel's cozy private dining room of their Notch8 restaurant. If you've read about my experience here for Halloween Tipsy tea, you'll find that the room has been transformed with relics from Fairmont's storied past in Canadian history. Built by Canadian Pacific Railway as one of the grand railway hotels that brought guests from coast-to-coast on luxurious train journeys, the hotel played an integral part in the early years of Canada's formation - a perfect place to celebrate Canada 150 this year.
Canada 150 afternoon tea runs from May 1st to September 3rd, 2017 with daily sittings at 11am, 1pm and 3 pm. Adults $59, children's tea $29.50 (ages 12 and under). Reservations can be made at 604-622-1900 or online.

Hi Mimi, I found your site whilst looking for ways to improve my macarons. I see that in your recipe you add a pinch of cream of tartar to the egg whites. This is not something I've come across before. What effect does the Cream of tartar have?
It helps stabilize the meringue.
