Food Notes for March 9, 2015

I’m honoured to be among the bloggers nominated in the “Best in Food” category for the 2014 Yeggies. Congrats to my fellow nominees! On to this week’s food notes:

  • Over 30 restaurants are participating in this year’s Downtown Dining Week, which runs March 13-22, 2015. Prix fixe meals are specially priced at $15 for lunch and $28 or $48 for dinner.
  • The Palestinian Bazaar on March 14, 2015 will celebrate the arts, culture and food of the Palestinian people. The event is taking place at the Citadel Theatre from 12-5pm.
  • It’s starting to look like spring out there – head to the annual Seedy Sunday event to get inspired for your garden this summer! The March 22, 2015 event features speakers, exhibitors and seed swapping.
  • St. Albert is now home to a taqueria – Cerdo Tacos opened last week at 150, 15 Perron Street.
  • The Edmonton location of The Burger’s Priest opens on Saturday. The Journal has a sneak peek.
  • Great to see that Meat is now offering brunch on the weekends from 11am-2pm! Bring on the biscuits and gravy.
  • First there was S’wich, then Farrow, and now, Sandwich and Sons – Edmonton is definitely on the handcrafted sandwich train! Both Andrea and Cindy checked it out last week.
  • Linda reviewed the new Browns Socialhouse in Windermere, which seems like an immediately popular addition to that part of the city.
  • Diane started a great series called Living La Vida Local, which will be highlighting her favourite local businesses. The first post is all about Revojuiceinary.
  • Have you seen Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants list? Three local establishments made the cut – Corso 32, RGE RD and Rostizado.
  • Ever wondered what your favourite chef has up his or her sleeve? Wonder no more, with Liane’s story about food tattoos.
  • Thinking of booking a class at Get Cooking? They’re offering a 10% discount for April to June classes booked this week. I’m already looking forward to our Indian street food class with Addie in a few weeks!
  • In Calgary on the weekend, Mack and I stumbled upon a thought-provoking art installation at the Esker Foundation in Inglewood called tender by Rita McKeough. The accompanying interview illuminates her view on how we should see our food.

  1. excited for you and the #yeggies! Interesting art installation. Those are supposed to be hotdogs right? Dan also wonders if they are real, and if so, if they are treated to any sort of solution to ‘preserve’ them for the duration of the installation. haha! 😀

  2. Thanks Lillian! Yes, they are supposed to be hot dogs. Not sure what process they underwent, but it was certainly a thought-provoking piece!
