Nobody knows the local landscape of farmers and sustainable food production like chef and award winning author, dee Hobbsbawn Smith.
Dee introduced Calgary to regional cuisine when she opened her restaurant, Foodsmith, in 1992. Since then she has written three best-selling cookbooks and Shop Talk, a round-up of the best local butchers, bakers and specialty grocery stores, as well as a weekly Calgary Herald column on food. Now dee's back with her latest book, Foodshed: An Edible Alberta Alphabet, which explores local food producers from Asparagus to Zizania (wild rice) and along the way, includes some great recipes and detailed information on sourcing local food.
Dee will be reading from her book and providing a PowerPoint discussion as well as selling copies of Foodshed at the Calgary Public library, John Dutton Theatre (2nd floor), on Friday, June 1, 7 p.m.
If you care about what you put on your plate, this is an event not to be missed!
