Spice up Your Long Weekend Staycation

Sometimes having no plan is the best plan you can have. Why not savour the long weekend by inviting another couple over for a game night. With ample Canadian cheese and wine, it won’t take long before you feel like you’re away at the cottage.

Tired of serving the same old snacks? This recipe for Canadian Provolone and Mango Chutney on a Cracker is a great twist on an old classic. The mango chutney gives delicious Canadian Provolone an unexpected punch, bringing out the cheese’s subtle smoky flavour.

Take couple’s night to the next level by pairing with a Sauvignon Blanc like Henri Bourgeois Petit Bourgeois if you’re a white wine lover, or Sol de Andes Reserva Especial Syrah if you love red. All you need is a board game and a deck of cards, and you have all the ingredients for a perfectly cozy little long weekend.  Henri Bourgeois Petit Bourgeois
