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.
Check out website and social media for a launch date in the upcoming weeks.
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, please… April 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.
We are definitely excited! We hope you are too! Stay tuned for more announcements throughout the coming months.
