Food-and-Literature Festival Launches In Nova Scotia


RIVERPORT, N.S. — A new food-and-literature festival is launching in Nova Scotia this fall.

On Sept. 13, Riverport, N.S.’s Rustik Magazine will present Alimentary Ideas, featuring New Yorker staff writer Mark Singer and New York-based Bon Appétit deputy editor Scott DeSimon, who will join guest chefs, food entrepreneurs and authors at the Chester Playhouse in Chester, N.S.

The day-long event will feature opportunities for networking, sharing ideas and participating in panel discussions. “As the local-food movement takes hold across Canada, there is increasing interest in knowing the people who grow and make our food, and hearing their personal stories and inspiration,” said Stephen Mostad, organizer and co-founder of Rustik Magazine. “Alimentary Ideas is Rustik’s flagship event envisioned to build those relationships and tell those stories.”

The line-up of guest chefs has not yet been announced. According to event organizers, tickets will sell for $49.50.
