Food Day Canada 2014

By on July 28, 2014

The count down is on…Saturday August 2nd is Food Day Canada!

As you may remember, last year was my first year partaking in the celebration of what Food Day Canada stands for: all things CANADIAN!!!

Food Day Canada is a chance for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers; our chefs and researchers…and, above all, our home cooks.

 Get Involved!  You can head to one of our enthusiastic Food Day Canada restaurants ( to enjoy an unequalled repast or you can plan your own party!

 Absolutely Anywhere!   Paddle to a distant shore to light a campfire…barbecue some fish …sweep off the deck for a neighbourhood supper….dig a roasting pit….build an oven … fire up the grill…and use only Canadian ingredients to create a feast or a simple dinner that honours our extraordinary culinary history and points the way to the future, together.

Food Day Canada is the time and place for Canadians to share their food and their stories with each other while leading other nations in cultural diversity, food ethics, magnificent flavours … and fun!  We know how to throw a great party, so LET’S SHOW THE WORLD!

And never, ever be afraid to haul out your soapbox to tell retailers to provide more Canadian ingredients, with hopefully less packaging, so you can eat this way all year round!

I encourage and invite you all to take part in this amazing tradition to celebrate what this beautiful country has to offer. I will definitely be enjoying a Canadian feast – whether it be homemade or one created by a chef & restaurant who will be taking part in the Food Day Canada festivities.

The official Food Day Canada site is encouraging everyone to join in and share your experiences be it on Facebook at: Food Day Canada event  or on twitter at: @fooddaycanada or use one of the official hashtags to share your Food Day Canada plans: #FDC2014 #FoodDayCanada or #Aug2. I will be posting my Food Day experiences on twitter at: @thefoodtease.

Can’t wait to be part of this great Canadian tradition!
