Since this is a vegetarian cooking blog, I won’t ask if you are interested in making your own sausage, but what about cheese making and tasting, or how about apple pie and pastry making, pasta making, or best of all slow rise pizza dough making?
If any of these sound interesting to you then you will want to consider attending the Eat Alberta Conference on April 30, 2011 here in Edmonton.
The sessions will take place downtown from 8:30am until 5:00pm and get started with a continental breakfast, lunch break with a cheese, charcuterie (I think I will stick with the cheese -haha), and artisan bread pairing and “wine down” with a wine tasting at the end of the day. Of course you know everything is going to taste wonderful being that this conference is organized by local foodies and bloggers, such as The Canadian Foodie, Brulee Blog, and Only Here for the Food.
Aside from the fantastic activities I mentioned at the beginning of the post, the day gets underway with an open session on urban gardening and gets everyone together at the end of the day for a session on urban homesteading, which sounds really interesting!
Throughout the day, you can choose from honey tasting with Lola Canola. This is something I have always wanted to do. I think it would be incredible to taste different types of honey and associate each of them with their respective flowers!
The conference also offers sessions on coffee tasting and how to make the perfect cup of coffee with the experts from Transcend, and of course more wine and cheese with a Canadian wine and local cheese tasting.
Best of all there is a local edible plants session!
This One-Day-Hands-On-Do-It-Yourself local food conference will be the place to be the last Saturday in April. So take a peak at your calendar and save the date and plan to Eat Alberta!
