"Another grab-and-go option is Picnic Charcuterie, where an Ontario native, Tina Windsor, 28, uses the island’s meats, edible plants and herbs. Opened last June, her long and compact deli includes a small back room where she ages and smokes her creations, such as ham cured with a kelp stout from Tofino Brewing Company and pancetta cured with thyme and hemlock tips. A seven-foot-long counter at the entryway displays her dozen varieties."

I'm getting my greens mainly from marine algae: slippery pickled bull kelp at Picnic washed down with Tofino Brewing Company's Kelp Stout. It's all remarkably good, and my fur has never looked better.  "
