Food Notes for August 19, 2013

Have you had a chance to check out the menus for Saturday’s What the Truck?! It’s our second last event of the year – hope to see you there! On to this week’s food notes:

  • Kerstin’s Chocolates is having a liquidation sale on August 22, 2013 of the items in their old shop.
  • To celebrate the Valley Zoo’s newest exhibit, the Urban Farm, the site is also hosting a special mini farmers’ market outside the zoo’s gates on August 24 and 31, 2013. Proceeds raised will support Hope Mission and the Edmonton & Area Land Trust.
  • Blue Plate Diner is hosting another Farm to Fork dinner on September 5, 2013. Tickets are $75 each.
  • The big news this week is undoubtedly Daniel Costa’s expansion, taking over not one, but two spaces adjacent to Corso 32.
  • The Journal reviewed Belgravia Hub last week.
  • Twyla wrote about her recent experience at Rge Rd – I’m salivating at the photos alone.
  • Liv reviewed Knosh, the British-themed food truck that took over Nomad’s wheels.
  • I didn’t end up attending the preview of Plow & Harvest, Edmonton’s newest restaurant, but perhaps I didn’t miss too much. I have to agree with Liane’s take on its ambiguously “local” philosophy.
  • I had no idea the person behind the Lay’s Perogy Platter flavour is from Edmonton! I haven’t yet tried it, but the fact that this is the hometown favourite is another reason to do so!
  • Valerie’s latest round-up of the Canadian Food Experience Project is all about regional food heroes. Click on to read some inspiring stories!
  • I was so ready for a glass of wine on Friday. I couldn’t think of a better place to unwind than at The Cavern, over a cheese and charcuterie plate, and of course, a cold glass of vino.
