HONEYWOOD, Ont. — Take 70 chefs and 20,000 foodies, and you’ll get chef Michael Stadtländer’s Foodstock culinary and musical rally, which is set to take place in Honeywood, Ont., on Oct. 16.Foodstock is a pay-what-you-can event created to raise money to pay for the legal fees associated with challenging a proposed limestone mega quarry, which would involve the digging up 1-billion tonnes of limestone from prime agricultural land next to the Niagara Escarpment.
Ontario culinary stars lending their skills in support of the cause include Jamie Kennedy (Jamie Kennedy Kitchens), Anthony Walsh (Canoe) and Brad Long (Café Belong). Each will create a dish using locally grown or procured items such as potatoes, cabbage, brussels sprouts, apples, smoked-lake trout, beef and pork.
