Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics
Joining in Canada’s 150th celebrations Eat Alberta is going back to learning, sharing and creating the basics of Alberta’s favourite foods. The 2017 conference is centring around participants learning to prepare classic Alberta dishes, while learning the cultural and historical story behind the food.
We are welcoming back local favourite and Eat Alberta founding member, Allan Suddaby of Elm Café to teach us “just like your Baba used to make”. We are also welcoming new chefs to the Eat Alberta table, including Steve Brochu of Chartier and Shane Chartrand of Sage Restaurant. This year promises to be an exciting and dynamic lineup that marries the best of modern culinary Alberta, with the skills and knowledge of the past.
The day begins with a delicious brunch prepared by NAIT chefs, followed by an inspiring keynote from Jon Hall in which he will share his knowledge and connection with Edmonton and Alberta’s culinary culture. Your day will be spent in the NAIT Hokansan Centre for Culinary Arts kitchens working hands-on with local chefs to prepare and learn about classic Alberta dishes. Every participant will have the opportunity to select 2 of the 4 classes offered. Details of these sessions can be found at: eatalberta.ca/sessions
We will end our day together with a social gathering and silent auction.
