Canada is on the menu, says Canadian and local food advocate and activist Anita Stewart.
“Canadians are coming together to declare Food Day Canada/ Journée des terroirs. We are shopping, cooking, eating and honouring those who produce and prepare our foods across the nation. The spirit of pride will shine as iconic structures are being lit red and white in honour of our Canadian cuisine from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland.”
“Anyone and everyone who loves Canadian food and beverages. Chefs, home cooks, farmers, ranchers, fishers, writers, winemakers, brewers, food processors, researchers…and the list goes on.”
