Apéro, /a.pe.ʁo/, noun:
French evening ritual that combines drinks, small plates and friends. Cheese and cured meats are usually key elements for a successful apéro. Often, L’Apéro last long into the night and turns into dinner itself.
Growing up, Guilliaume lived in Lyon and spent a lot of time in Alsace, Franche-Comté and Rhône-Alpes, regions well-known for their wines and cheeses. Introduced at a young age to some of the most iconic French cheeses and later wine, he developed a strong appetite for authentic regional products. Each place he visited was an opportunity to taste new ones. He would then organize apéros to share his discoveries with others.
Years later, he moved to Victoria. As usual when exploring a new city, he went on a quest to finding a good cheese shop and discovered Ottavio in Oak Bay. He ended up up becoming the cheese monger for Ottavio and expanded his culinary horizon to North American Cheeses.
