Food Notes for December 8, 2014

  • The big news this week was Events Edmonton’s announcement that they are hosting the Canadian Food Championships in conjunction with Taste of Edmonton next July: “This exciting opportunity will allow Canadian chefs, home cooks and foodies of all backgrounds to compete for cash, glory, and an all-expenses-paid (flights, accommodation and entry fees) Golden Ticket to compete in the 4th Annual World Food Championships, which will be held in Florida in November of 2015.” I’m not familiar with the WFC, but I’m interested in seeing how this event shapes up.
  • Lots of pop-ups coming your way this weekend, starting with Honest Dumplings, who will be taking over Drift’s new storefront on December 12, 2014, from 5:30-9:30pm.
  • Big City Sandwich’s Big City Burger Fest is taking place on December 13, 2014, from 5-8pm at the Nor’Wester Rugby Club.
  • Long Lost Foods is hosting their holiday pop-up on December 14, 2014 at the Mercury Room. They have two seatings, 4pm and 7pm, with tickets priced at $35.
  • Twyla reviewed Ampersand 27 last week.
  • Linda shares her take on North 53’s new menu.
  • Cheryl attended a unique food event at Baseline Wines, which paired wines with cookies!
  • Karlynn and Phil’s second podcast, all about their #yegfood Christmas lists, is now up.
  • Avenue Edmonton talks about the new restaurant movement towards a “no reservation” policy.
  • Mack and I had dinner with some friends at Woodwork on Friday, just on the heels of their first anniversary – congrats!
