Edmonton’s stepping up to the plate—literally—as culinary walking tours hit downtown streets Sept.3.
Karen Anderson, president of Alberta Food Tours, said the calibre and variety of local offerings in the capital region has grown enough in recent years to justify the type of three-hour food tours she’s been running in Calgary and Canmore for several years.
“We’ve developed our own food culture here, and we want to give that a narrative,” said Anderson. “Our cool nights make root vegetables sweeter here. Saskatoon berries, Red Fife wheat—they’re perfect in our dry prairie climate. And Alberta is the fifth largest honey producer in the world. We’re ambassadors for the stories of our area. People travel to understand a culture, and food gets us there quickly.”
