Taste Local! Taste Fresh! Celebrates 10th Anniversary at Steckle Heritage Farm
Spend a delightful afternoon strolling the picturesque grounds of Steckle Farm, a heritage designated property and working farm right in the City of Kitchener. Much of the event will take place within a breathtaking post and beam style barn dating back to 1840. Twenty original food creations prepared by teams of the area’s finest chefs and farmers will be featured offering participants an opportunity to sample exquisite new recipes showcasing local foods and farm-fresh products.
Taste Local! Taste Fresh! brings together all of the links in the food chain–farmers, distributors, retailers, chefs and consumers–to celebrate our local harvest and the diversity of great food we have here in Waterloo Region. The event is also Foodlink’s only fundraiser, with proceeds going towards the organization’s mission to promote food localism.
Taste Local guests will be able to meet and chat with chefs about the art of cooking and with farmers about the local food they grow. To add to the ambiance, guests will be treated to lively Gypsy jazz music of Juneyt and will have an opportunity to bid on fabulous silent auction packages while sampling Pelee Island Wines, Wellington County brews and sparkling cider from Hoity Toity Cellars. Each guest will receive a “passport” that will be stamped at the various food stations.
Where: Steckle Heritage Farm, 811 Bleams Rd. Kitchener.
When: September 15, 2013
