CALGARY — From Sept. 19 to 20, the 2022 Terroir Symposium will partner with Food Tourism Strategies and Culinary Marketing Strategies for its first event at the Calgary Central Library in 15 years.
The programming offers two days of inspiring speakers, workshops, tastings, food and enlightening adventures. Indigenous drummers, smudge ceremony, origin stories, spoken word and prayers will pay homage to our native communities. Programming highlights include: The Future of Chefs, Post Pandemic; Short Supply – Where do we find new talent?; Collaborative Cooking: Coast to Coast; Time to Bounce Forward – Strategies That Help You Scale and Grow; Food & Farm Systems and Preserving the Family Farm.
Additionally, bison will play a starring role for its importance to the land, the people and its connection to place. Working with Noble Premium Bison to showcase the art of butchery is Hendrik Dierendonck (butcher, Carcasse, Belgium), Elyse Chatterton (Popowich Meat Co., Canadian butcher team, Edmonton) and Blair Lebsack (owner, chef and butcher, RGE RD, Edmonton). The cuts will be distributed among chef teams to be featured throughout the programming.
