Food Day Canada

Canada’s Culinary Ambassador and award winning cookbook author, Anita Stewart has evolved The World’s Longest BBQ into Food Day Canada.

Saturday August 4th, is a chance for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers; our chefs and researchers…and, above all, our home cooks.

We want YOU, our be well readers, to join in and celebrate great Canadian food!

In Anita’s words:
You can head to one of our enthusiastic Food Day Canada restaurants to enjoy an unequalled repast or you can plan your own party!  Absolutely Anywhere!  

Paddle to a distant shore to light a campfire…barbecue some fish …sweep off the deck for a neighbourhood supper….dig a roasting pit….build an oven … fire up the grill…and use only Canadian ingredients to create a feast or a simple dinner that honours our extraordinary culinary history and points the way to the future, together.  

And never, ever be afraid to haul out your soapbox to tell retailers to provide more Canadian ingredients, with hopefully less packaging, so you can eat this way all year round! 

Food Day Canada is the time and place for Canadians to share their food and their stories with each other while leading other nations in cultural diversity, food ethics, magnificent flavours … and fun!  We know how to throw a great party, so LET’S SHOW THE WORLD!

Tell us below how you are going to celebrate Canadian Food and you will be entered to win a copy of Anita Stewarts Cookbook, The Flavours of Canada. CONTEST CLOSED

You can visit the Food Day Canada site for more information on how to get involved, share your story and celebrate our  nation, with a delicious, fresh, local meal.

be well…
