The Story of Gourmet Pantry
If you have a "foodie" in your life, you've no doubt heard all about the superior products that come from small-batch artisans. Quality is at the top of their agenda as they scour local markets, looking for the right ingredient for the right dish. We must admit that we're no different... We put together this gift in the hopes that one day someone would give it to us!
- Canadian Sea Salt (Vancouver Island Salt Co.)
- 72% Dark Chocolate Crow Bar (Salish Sea Chocolate Company)
- Medium Roast Coffee Beans, 1lb (Fernwood Coffee Company)
- Owl's Screech Hot Sauce (Vancouver Island Hot Sauce Company)
- Philosopher's Brew (Silk Road)
- Sea Salt Toffee Bark, Box (RockCoast)

With everything from cherry trees to street art, punk bars and art galleries, Fernwood is where we work, live, and play. For us, coffee is a way to engage community, connect to place, and to build relationships. Our coffee reflects that.

Rock Coast Toffee
RockCoast is a labour of love and passion for me. I'm so excited for you to try my mouth watering toffee bark but watch out - its addictive!
- Amber Isles, RockCoast Founder and Toffeetier
Vancouver Island Salt Co.
After a decade travelling the world as a chef, my young family decided to plant our roots on beautiful Vancouver Island. Surrounded by pristine ocean waters, I wondered why Canada did not have its own Sea Salt. A friend told me that "if it could be done, it would be done"...
-Andrew Shepherd, Founder
