Spotlight on Alberta Food
June 3, 2014
Something I loved my most recent dinner party was its special focus on highlighting Alberta Agriculture.
At this stage of the season the bounty of fresh grown greens, herbs vegetables is becoming greater by the day. The farmer’s Markets are getting into action and after a cold long winter Alberta is showing everyone the diversity and glory of our local agriculture.
Innisfail Lamb Rack – crusted with fresh bread crumbs rosemary and dijon. Brown butter potatoes and rocket.
Press Salad – Baby char, spinach & kale tossed with bacon, goatcheese, pumpkin seeds & red Banana.
Maple & white balsamic viniagrette made with Alberta cold pressed canola oil.
Spring Chicken – Citrus and herb rubbed chicken with double potatoes and Jus. Heirloom carrots and Micro greens produced by local greenhouses.

As we grow deeper into our Canadian summer, farms and greenhouses will continue to show us the lush glory our Alberta sun. Reward yourself and visit your local farmer’s market and support our local producers. Impress yourself with some new home grown additions to your eating routine.
