Food day on July 30th!  

The last workshop-dinner of the season at Les Jardins Sauvages Sunday July 24th



Celebrate Food Day/La Journée des Terroirs with chefs and food lovers across Canada on July 30th

What is Canada food day?  A celebration of Canadian food and cooks, and eating local www.foodday.ca


Our menu at Les Jardins Sauvages, where it's food day year round in that we are 99%local (yes, even in winter).. But what a perfect time to make the most of the season's bounty, share a feast and raise a glass to our rich terroir!



More from the Food day Newsletter FYI:

It's pan-Canadian - It begins with sunrise on Signal Hill at 5:37 a.m. then proceeds to the Sheraton Newfoundland for a breakfast in aid of the Food Bank in St John's. Following the sun and the imaginations of Canada's chefs it will end on Chesterman Beach in Tofino where the culinary team of the Wickaninnish Inn are prepping a crab boil.   
  • The goal is to ensure that NO Canadian can ignore the fact that we have some of the finest food and talent (at all levels) on the planet. 
  • That there is NO PLANET B and helping one another is helping us all. 
  • That we know how to throw a heckava great party
  • That all Canadians can participate by posting their menus (and pics too) if they cannot get to a restaurant.
Send your menus, comments, pics tAnna@fooddaycanada.ca.
They will be then posted on your restaurant's profile then the menus will be held for the Awards.  The Judges will receive them in mid August (we have a fantastic team!) and we hope to announce them by mid-September.   

There are Awards for: 
  • The Best Heritage Menu (Parks Canada); 
  • The University of Guelph Good Food Innovation Award
  • The Best Brunch Award; 
  • The Healthy People/Healthy Planet Award
  • The Taste of Nova Scotia Lobster Award.
