Inspired by Aboriginal cuisine a group of chefs from Alberta created a seven course dinner paired with wines from Nk’Mip Cellars.  Dancers from Tsuu T’ina, Cree and Blackfoot nations performed dazzling sacred movements with the deep resonance of drums beating in the background.  Guests at Fort Calgary where the event was held, were tantalized by Canapes from chef Peter Syriste of Fort Calgary and Andrew Winfield of the River Cafe.

The events purpose was to showcase the rich food culture of Alberta.”Food gives us a sense of place and a sense of culture,” said Donald House, chairman of the Alberta Culinary Tourism Alliance.
