Taste of the North: a Feast of Local Flavour

Help us celebrate World Food Day and kick-off our Regional Food Systems Expo. Join us Sunday, October 16, 2011, 6pm-9pm, at the College of New Caledonia in Prince George for Taste of the North: a Feast of Local Flavour where we are 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 are on sale at the Community Futures Fraser-Fort George office, the College of New Caledonia Bookstore, and the Prince George Farmers’ Market. Cash payment only.
