Food Notes for September 9, 2013

Save the date for the last What the Truck?! of the year: 16 vendors, an all-star line-up of DJs, and the biggest food truck party of the year. See you at Churchill Square on September 20! On to this week’s food notes:

  • I’m sad to miss it this year (due to being out of town for a wedding), but the Downtown Edmonton Community League’s annual Corn Fest runs this Saturday, September 14, from 11am-3pm. Come on down to Beaver Hills House Park on Jasper Avenue & 105 Street for some free corn!
  • The Mirepoix Trio, a chef collaborative, is hosting another vegan pop-up, this time at Accent Lounge, on September 15, 2013. Check out the menu here.
  • Mosh Burger’s next pop-up, under the theme of the “Dirty South”, is taking place on September 16, 2013. 5 courses and a drink pairing for $100.
  • The Friends of the Royal Alberta Museum has planned another hosted Chinese meal. The spotlight at the September 19, 2013 dinner falls on Peking duck, prepared by Beijing Beijing. Tickets are $40 per person.
  • Liane wrote about the new Café Bicyclette, now open at La Cite Francophone, which has freshened up the space formerly occupied by Bistro La Persaud.
  • Plow & Harvest has not been getting good reviews – this time, from CBC’s Twyla Campbell.
  • Hurrah for food trucks – Calgary’s fleet will be operating soon on a permanent bylaw, voted in on September 6, 2013.
  • Congratulations to May and Antony on their wedding this past weekend! I was honoured to be May’s Maid of Honour. Though it was a bit disappointing that the weather didn’t hold up to allow for outdoor photos, she didn’t let that dampen her spirits and still enjoyed the milestone day.

May and Sharon

Happy day!
