An Appetizing Affair in Vegreville
Aug 8, 2012
This Thursday, August 9th, is the opening night for the Vegreville Agricultural Society County Fair. Kicking off the fair with some decadence will be the annual dinning event Gourmet Affair, formerly Dine Kalyna. Gourmet Affair is a night that promises to tickle your taste buds showcasing local Vegreville producers and Executive Chefs from across Alberta.
The event, which has always been paired with the Agricultural Society, is an ideal arena for local producers to gain a sales footprint in the community.
The market for farm-to-table cooking has gained notoriety in the past few years and that is exactly what this event highlights. Local delicacies include whitetail venison from Waskwei Creek White Tails and raspberry confections made from Simply Fine Sweets.
Gourmet Affair emphasizes the producers and Albertan chefs behind this event's remarkable food. Returning again this year will be Executive Chef, Andrew Ihasz from the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald as well as a bevy of other notable chefs from the region.
If your mouth is already watering and ready to sample an array of Vegreville’s finest, tickets are still available to this extraordinary evening out.
