TORONTO -- The Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) is inviting future chefs, organic industry stakeholders and the food service media to an informative and fun event on the rapidly growing organic food sector.
At ‘Let’s Go Organic’ students and faculty members from four of Canada’s leading culinary schools – George Brown College in Toronto, Humber College in Etobicoke, Niagara College in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and The Culinary Institute of Canada in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island – will join CHFA members involved with organic agriculture, manufacturing and distribution, to learn the latest on organics in the food service industry.
‘Let’s Go Organic’ will take place Monday February 21st from 2- 4 p.m. at the Intercontinental Hotel, 225 Front Street, Toronto, Ballrooms A and B on the lower level. The event will include organic wine tasting, a delicious organic reception, product sampling from organic suppliers, a discussion of recent studies on the nutritional content of organic versus non-organic foods, information about sourcing and preparing organic foods, and a review of the current state of organic food regulations in Canada.
Highlighting the event will be a visit and address from renowned Chef Michael Stadtländer. Chef Stadtländer operates Eigensinn Farm, a unique culinary experience that has become an international destination. Serving eight guests at a time in his farmhouse, Mr. Stadtländer prepares an eight or nine-course dinner, using mostly organic ingredients from his own farm or sourced from neighbouring farms.
