I hope you all made the most of a beautiful long weekend! I can scarcely believe it’s already approaching mid-August, but it’s really a reminder not to take the summer for granted. I know we’re trying to pack in as much as we can! On to this week’s food notes:
- Don’t forget – Eat St. is in town this week to shoot Molly’s Eats, Drift and The Act! Make sure to head down to support the trucks if you can!
- Sabor Divino is running its first annual Classic Seafood Festival, which runs from August 10 – September 8, 2012.
- Our next Truck Stop event will be taking place on August 15, 2012 at the Edmonton Public School Archives (10425 99 Avenue). And we’re changing up the format – the three trucks will be putting up their best pulled pork sandwiches in an effort to win your vote! Come join us for the first ever Truck Stop: Throwdown Edition!
- The Red Shoe Crawl organized by the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Alberta was so successful they are offering a taste of not one but two neighbourhoods this year (I attended and loved the event last year)! On September 16, 2012, participants will be able to sample the cuisine of up-and-coming 124 Street restaurants. I’m looking forward to it already! Tickets are $40 and available here.
- Vue Weekly published a piece on the art of serving.
- Did you know that Kevin Kossowan is offering his own series of workshops now? You can learn how to forage, butcher and make cider directly from one of Edmonton’s most passionate and knowledgeable local food advocates.
- Looks like there is finally a self-serve yogurt place downtown (well, technically in Oliver). Not sure about the name Yogo Frogurt, as it is both hard to pronounce and remember, but hopefully the quality is similar to Tutti Frutti and Twisted Yogurt! Anyone try it yet?

- Mack’s parents were in town this weekend on holidays, and we wanted to show them the Fort Edmonton Footbridge. It doubled as an opportunity for their dogs to stretch their legs!
