Food Day Canada! July 30, 2016

Help celebrate Food Day Canada! Join this annual culinary party by taking Anita Stewart’s challenge to cook using 100% Canadian ingredients. 

Preparing food from Canadian ingredients supports our producers and processors in business plus helps to define our culinary identity as Canadians. Not only that, local food is better for the environment, our economy, reduces food waste and generates jobs while supporting those around you. 

This Saturday, July 30th is our “chance as Canadians to celebrate and support the country's farmers, fishers, chefs, researchers and home cooks”, says Stewart. She also states that, "If I tell people to cook like a Canadian I have to tell them how to shop like a Canadian.” So to help celebrate the 149th birthday of Canada Stewart chose 149 ingredients to help all of us shop like Canadians.
