Food 4 Thought : Update

All of the below photos were taken at amazing Alberta farms this week. I was thrilled to participate in the Galimax Trading: Chef’s Tour where I ate my way across southern Alberta one farm at a time! Thanks to Rudy for arranging such a wonderful day out, and thanks to all the farmers who welcomed, educated and fed 300 Calgary chefs! * more about this tour in a later post (likely after Food 4 Thought wraps up)

  1. I so wish I could be there, but sadly I’m out of town that weekend. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to simply visit local farms this summer.
