Celebrate Food Day Canada 2012!
August 1, 2012
Summer is the perfect season to sit back, relax and enjoy delicious food and drinks in the company of family and friends - and what better reason to get together for a summer spread than Food Day Canada?
Food Day Canada was founded in 2003 and started off as a barbecue event to support the Canadian beef industry. Through the years, it evolved into an annual country-wide celebration of all Canadian food products. It also acknowledges the work and achievements of our country’s researchers, farmers, food processors, chefs, restaurateurs, and let’s not forget, the ever-important home cook! This year’s event lands on Saturday August 4, 2012 and provides ample opportunities to experience all the flavours that Canada has to offer.
From blueberries to lobster, our high quality, safe and nutritious Canadian food makes for an unlimited array of delicious meal options. Those looking to sample some top-notch dishes showcasing Canadian ingredients can check out the over 250 restaurants that are participating in Food Day Canada across the country. Feeling creative? Why not try cooking up an amazing all-Canadian meal at home? Food Day Canada’s website has all the inspiration you need, with a comprehensive list of recipes using Canadian ingredients for the home chef!
AAFC is proud to take an active role in promoting Canadian food to consumers at home and around the world. Check out our eatCanadian.ca website for more information, including a snapshot on how to identify Canadian food.
So let’s dig into the tastes of summer, and raise a glass (or a fork) to Canadian food!
Until next time,
Lammie Cheng & Shannon Fraser
