Feastival of Fine Chefs

I had mentioned a few weeks ago that I was able to attend the Feastival of Fine Chefs in Edmonton. This was a really cool event that was a lot of fun to go to.

Feastival is put on by the Alberta Food Processors Association. It is an event that helps bring attention to the quality of produce and goods that are grown in Alberta, the quality of fine chefs and food that is created in Edmonton, as well as helping the Alberta Food Processors bring some attention to their programs.

There are over 1200 people that attend this event each year, and a huge waiting list to get in. This is the reason why everyone wants to go....

These were 2 of the 4 courses that my hotel, the Delta Edmonton Centre Suite Hotel had at the event. We were lucky enough to have a table and bring some clients and friends along for the evening!

Each hotel or restaurant is given a box of ingredients that they have to use for each of the 4 courses of the eventing. These could range from Alberta Beef and Elk, to Alberta grown apples and squash. The chefs then have 1 week to create and perfect their dishes.

 Throughout the night the guests get to eat 1 course from 4 different hotels or restaurants in the city. I was lucky enough to get 4 amazing meals! I do have to say though that they best food that our table got came from the Delta Edmonton Centre each time! So that made us pretty proud.

If you ever get the chance to attend this event I would say to take that opportunity. It is a really fun night filled with great people and amazing food. And who knows you may just find your new favorite restaurant while you are at it!
