Interested in joining the Eat Alberta team?

We're looking for volunteers!


After a successful Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics, we are looking forward to expanding our event repertoire for the rest of 2017 and planning our flagship Eat Alberta 2018 event. To help us realize our future vision, we’re looking for some food-loving, engaged, energetic and team-player volunteers to join our board.

We are an entirely volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to get the word out about Alberta’s diverse foodscape. Naturally, this means celebrating the food itself, but it also includes championing the hard-working producers and the people who work just as hard to prepare it.  The food grown in our lovely province has so many stories to tell and we want to help tell them in a fun and hands-on environment.

If this sounds like an opportunity that you can get excited about, then we would love to have you apply to join our board by emailing us at team@eatalberta.ca by June 9, 2017.

We are currently looking for new members with the following skillsets:

  • Event planning
  • Securing sponsorships
  • Volunteer coordination
  • Communications

Please provide a short description of your relevant skills, your previous volunteer experience and why you are interested in being a part of Eat Alberta. If we feel that you could be a great fit with our team, we’ll get in touch to arrange an interview.

Thank you for your interest in Eat Alberta. We look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely,

Brieanne, Clarin, Jens, Jon, Loretta and Nathan
Eat Alberta Board of Directors and Organizing Committee

Back to Basics and Loving It!

Back to Basics and Loving It!

On April 23, we hosted Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics at the NAIT Hokasan Centre for Culinary Arts. So much good food was made, shared and enjoyed, while attendees learned more about the history of Alberta foods.

Since we were coming back after taking a year off with a new format, we were hoping to return stronger than ever, so it was so encouraging to see so many people looking forward to our sixth conference. However, we were most proud to see how full everyone’s tote bags were at the end of the day and we hope that everyone enjoyed what they made at Eat Alberta 2017.

Dress to Impress with your Apron!

If you’ve read the FAQ for Eat Alberta 2017, you know that an apron is part of the dress code for NAIT’s kitchens. However, the apron will play a special part in this year’s conference, as we encourage you to leave the plain aprons at home and spice up your apron life on April 23!

If you do, then you have a chance of winning our “Best Apron” contest!

We are so excited to partner with Archive Magazine for this contest, as this new Alberta lifestyle magazine explores handmade creations, Canadian destinations and, of course, Alberta food and drink. Not only will the winner receive a one-year subscription to Archive magazine, he or she will also get a bundle of Archive’s first four issues!

Judging this competition will be our Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics Master of Ceremonies, Mark Connolly. If you got up early to hear his radio show this morning, then you have a jump-start on the clue that he gave for the contest. However, we want to level the playing field and tell you here as well.

The hint is: self-expression.

Interpret that how you will, as we hope to see some unique aprons at Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics.

And if you haven’t registered yet, act fast so you don't to miss out!

Eat Alberta 2017 Session – Tasty Tourtière

Our final entry for the Eat Alberta 2017 session blog entries is “Tasty Tourtière.” When we decided to highlight French Canadian food for this year’s conference, we initially called this session “Pass the Poutine.” However, Steven Brochu, the head chef of Chartier was quick to help us look past the poutine when it came to this kind of cuisine.

If you visit Chartier in Beaumont, you will find poutine on their menu, but you will also find many French Canadian favourites that have been modified for modern food lovers. This includes tourtière, beef bourguignon and a smoked meat sandwich that made the Tomato’s 5th Annual Top 100 Best Things to Eat or Drink in Edmonton (check out #36)!

However, the principles behind the dishes remain the same, as they are still inspired by the combination of local seasonal ingredients to make hearty meals. For Eat Alberta 2017, we are excited to have Steven come to teach session participants about how to use Alberta ingredients to make tourtière.

There are still a couple of slots open for this session, so act now to ensure your attendance to “Tasty Tourtière” for Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics.

Chinese restaurants have a strong presence in Alberta and the food has a very interesting history spanning all the way back to the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. At the session, participants will learn how a couple of Canadian-Asian favourites, Kung Pao Chicken and Chicken Spring Rolls.

Session participants will also get something a little extra, thanks to session sponsor Alberta Chicken Producers, as at the end of the session, each participant will get a cookbook and recipe card.

Eat Alberta 2017 Session – Indigenous Workshop

This week, we are highlighting our “Indigenous Workshop” session, which is presented by Shane Chartrand.

Agriculture and food are a key part of Alberta’s history and economy. For the First Nations, their cuisine heavily relies on resourcefulness and creativity to make hearty dishes that are still enjoyed today. As the Executive chef at Sage Restaurant at the River Cree Casino and Resort, Shane creates dishes that refines indigenous cuisine through local foods and using food trends from around the world.

However, while First Nations are an important part of Alberta’s history, indigenous foods are not as prevalent in Alberta restaurants compared to other types of cuisines. Therefore, Shane’s vast knowledge and passion about indigenous foods provides a great opportunity for participants to learn more about the history and secrets behind this culture’s unique dishes.

If that sounds like something you would be interested in, then make sure to mark “Indigenous Workshop” as one of your preferred sessions when you register for Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics.

Still not convinced? Then we encourage you to check out, “The Food of Our Land,” a recent article by Avenue Magazine that interviews multiple local chefs, including Shane Chartrand, about what indigenous cuisine is and the importance of keeping these foods relevant in Edmonton.

Eat Alberta 2017 Keynote – Jon Hall

An entrepreneur, community activist and enthusiastic eater are a few ways to describe Jon Hall, our keynote speaker for Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics. With his wide involvement in the provincial food community and the passion shown to multiple organizations, we thought his expertise was a perfect fit for celebrating the history and culture behind some of Alberta’s favourite foods.

Alongside his wife of 34 years, chef Gail Hall, Jon supported local food and producers through his role as a founding director of the Edmonton Downtown Farmers’ Market Association and helping out at Gourmet Goodies and Seasoned Solutions Cooking School.

That experience has filled him with knowledge that he is excited to share with Eat Alberta 2017 participants, so we encourage you to register now so you don’t to miss out on Jon’s keynote address.

Also, don’t forget that Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics is the perfect hands-on opportunity to learn about the history of various cuisines in Alberta. Check out our Sessions & Presenters webpage to learn more about Jon Hall and our session presenters, or our FAQ page if you have any questions.

Happy Canada’s Agriculture Day!

No matter how much the world changes, people will always strive to put food on their kitchen tables. Agricultural production has come a long way over the years, as automated machinery and new technology allow Canadian farmers to sustainably feed a growing world population. However, it is also through their hard work and determination that Canadians get to enjoy a wide variety of locally-grown fruits, vegetables, crops, dairy and meats.

So today, on Canada's Agriculture Day 2017, Eat Alberta would like to "celebrate the food we love" by taking a moment to say, "Thank you," to all of the incredible farmers in Alberta and in Canada.

Early Chinese Settlement in Alberta and how Chinese Restaurants Helped Establish Community

Early Chinese Settlement in Alberta and how Chinese Restaurants Helped Establish Community

Almost everyone’s had it. Western Chinese food – lemon chicken, ginger beef, green onion cakes and chop suey, to name a few. Almost every small town rural Alberta has a Chinese restaurant. Growing up in Alberta, you or your family must have grown up at least going to a Chinese restaurant for dinner or ordering take out on a somewhat regular basis.

This month, in lead up to our event on April 23, 2017, we would like to go back to basics and learn what has made the Alberta food community to what it is now. So there’s no better time to introduce how the establishment of Chinese restaurants in the Alberta prairies came to be, than now. Chinese New Year – the Year of the Rooster to be exact – is just around the corner on Saturday, January 28, 2017. Let’s celebrate by taking a mini-history lesson.

Eat Alberta 2017 Announcement

In the flurry of farmer’s markets, weekends at the lake, festivals, and of course BBQs - summer in Alberta certainly flew by!  While the Eat Alberta team has been busy enjoying the bounty of vegetables and fruit these past few months, since our relaunch the team has been busy planning and preparing fresh new initiatives to ensure they are ready to harvest!

Over summer we have filmed with some truly special Alberta food lovers to bring you the story behind the food. The first video of our new series will be launching this October.

We have also been working with our fantastic partner, NAIT Culinary Arts, to start planning the 2017 Conference. We have just one question for you - are you a fan of brunch? A lover of eggs? A bacon connoisseur? We are. We think brunch is awesome, and thought you might too. Which is why when we were picking a date and time for Eat Alberta 2017, the team threw caution to the brisk Alberta wind and selected… Drumroll, pleaseApril 23, 2017. 

There will be a few changes to the Conference this year. First being April 23 is a Sunday, because we thought what is even better than learning and connecting with passionate Alberta chefs and producers? Learning and connecting with food loving Albertans after a delicious Sunday brunch prepared by the talented folks at NAIT.

To The Market We Go!

Today, we welcome Eat Alberta volunteer and local food advocate, Loretta Friedrich, as a guest author to the Eat Alberta Blog. Loretta will be sharing her tips for making the most of shopping at local farmer's markets and a recipe to help you prepare a nutritious and affordable family dinner at home. 

When you visit a farmer’s market you may find breads and sweets, handmade clothing, prepared foods, small furniture, crafts, and even food trucks, but most people certainly expect fresh produce and family farm meats. In the warmer months, you will find numerous outdoor markets, open from mid-May to end of September, held on any given day of the week. Farmer’s markets attract all age groups, but what exactly is at the heart of their enormous appeal?

1. Knowing your farmer or producer

This is probably one of the biggest draws for me personally, to connect one-on-one with those who provide food, learn about their story, and understand how they prepare their foods.

2. Neighborhood / Community

Farmer’s markets are communities within communities: support your neighborhood farmer’s market and you’re supporting both the farmer and the neighborhood that it is in.

3. Support Alberta

Farmer’s markets are about more than just selling and buying. They’re about keeping the local economy humming – we support them and they support us. The money stays in Alberta.

4. Smaller Carbon Foot Print

The product hasn’t traveled thousands of miles to come to our door. Farmer’s markets are better for the environment, which is better for all of us inhabitants of the earth!

5. Fresh Product

By far one of the main reasons why many people go to a farmer’s market is for the fresh product. When you see dirt still clinging to a carrot or potato, or smell fruit or herbs in the air, you know the produce has just been harvested. It is also quite likely that the eggs are only hours old and the sausages were made just the day before.

You get tremendous value with outstanding quality through:

Taste – We want food that tastes good, not just looks good. After all, isn’t that why we buy food? A lot of merchants will offer tastings; ask to taste a sample from a vendor.

Nutrition – An automatic benefit to eating quality food is that it is very nutritious. That fresh vine-ripe tomato is happily assimilated in your body, which uses every nutrient.

Fresh also means you get the best “field to fork” experience at your dining room table. You know the saying, “you get what you pay for.” It’s not all about the price! When you shop, consider taste and nutrition, not just how much things costs. Get the most bang for your buck!

Preparing for Market Day

  • Online preparation – A lot of markets have their own website that features “market sheets” to let you know who and what is available on market day. 
  • Have cash on hand – Most vendors only accept cash, so make sure your wallet is filled with plenty of money.
  • Don’t overbuy - To lessen the impact on your pocket book only buy what you know you will eat. No food waste!
  • Bring bags – Help mother earth as well as the vendor by bringing your own bags.
  • Give yourself time – This is especially important if you’ve never been to a particular market. Consider factoring in time to make two loops around the market, the first being to scope out what’s there, and the next round to purchase.
  • Experiment with new foods – Try new product, don’t just grab the same bread, produce or meat. Try new flavors. Go for the in-season produce.
  • Buy frozen food last – It probably goes without saying, but visit the vendors who offer the frozen product you want to buy, last. You don’t want your meat thawing out while you’re walking around the market. Ask to have it bagged in separate wrap to avoid cross-contamination, especially with fresh produce.
  • Softer food on top – Common sense kicks in: put the delicate produce (softer fruits, lettuce, and herbs) and fresh eggs on top of other harder produce, in your bag, or carry them separately.

Farmer’s market meals

Markets are the perfect place to purchase what will become your meal. Consider buying one or two vegetables as the focus, then seek out complementing foods; fresh in-season produce, herbs, honey, or grass-fed animal products are best.

To build a meal, play with whole foods, vibrant colours, herbs, texture, hot and cold. This keeps the meal interesting, affordable, and delicious. You may be pleasantly surprised how simple preparation with basic foods cuts down on assembly time too! When you love what you see and taste it becomes easier to digest, and this increases nutrient absorption as well. Sounds like a great way to reap every benefit from a market purchase!

Exciting Changes Ahead for Eat Alberta

Since Eat Alberta’s inaugural event in April 2011 our mission has been to encourage and inspire Albertans to connect with each other, to learn about and enjoy the bounty of Alberta food.

Much like the evolving Alberta food culture and community, Eat Alberta is excited to announce that our organization is also evolving with the goal to share our passion for eating local with more Albertans than ever before.


What does 2016 hold for Eat Alberta?
Over the next few months we will be unveiling two significant changes for the organization. First, Eat Alberta will be launching a new visual identity. We are pleased to share that over the past few months we have been working with DDB Canada to create a new visual identity for Eat Alberta and we can not wait to share our new look with all of you!

Secondly in an effort to connect with more local food enthusiasts this year, we plan to celebrate all that Alberta has to offer by hosting smaller events throughout 2016. The Eat Alberta Series will be a collection of everything you have come to know, appreciate and love from our one-day workshop conference. The events will be supported by expanded online content, which will be released throughout the year to help you cook, taste and enjoy the best of Alberta’s bounty.

The one-day Eat Alberta Conference remains our flagship activity. To our loyal volunteers, presenters and past attendees we thank you for your continued support. We look forward to once again hosting our workshop conference in 2017.


How do you find out more?
Details of the Eat Alberta Series and the developing online resources will be released throughout 2016. To stay in the loop with our announcements and content releases, please follow our social media channels, newsletter and website blog.
