Celebrate World Food Day with Taste of the North

World Food Day is celebrated around the world on October 16th to honour the date of the founding of the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Foundation.

This year, we are hosting a special event on Sunday, October 16th to celebrate World Food Day and to kick-off our Regional Food Systems Expo in Prince George.

Taste of the North: a Feast of Local Flavour is offering the public a unique gourmet dining experience. With a glass and napkin in hand, you can taste the very best that northern agriculture has to offer.

Prepared by Chef Christian and the students of the CNC Professional Cook Program, this wandering gala will feature more than a dozen unique taste sensations prepared using a wide of variety of meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, grains, and more, all harvested from the Highway 16 region.

Taste of the North will highlight the relationship between farmer and chef, and showcase the potential of our local food system. Guests can expect to bump elbows with many of the farmers who provided food for the menu while sampling a feast of culinary delights.

Tickets for the event are $40.00 and will go on sale Sept 19, 2011.
