The moment we’ve been waiting for has arrived – the 2014 Savour cookbooks have arrived at the EDA office and are ready for purchase!
Earlier this year, the Economic Development Alliance (EDA) of Southeast Alberta partnered with third and fourth year students in the Business Administration program at Medicine Hat College to explore new ways to promote and support the southeast Alberta local food initiative – Savour the Southeast. The Savour the Southeast 2014 Cookbook is one of the projects birthed through that collaboration.
The cookbook contains recipes from many Southeast Alberta restaurants, chefs, foodies, producers, and grocers. Some of the local food that has been incorporated into the recipes includes:
- Fresh peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes (grown by the largest greenhouse operations in Alberta)
- Lentils, canola and organic wheat (located on over 1,529,484 acres of cultivated land)
“With all of the food that is produced right here in Southeast Alberta, it just makes sense that we would celebrate it and offer people a book full of ideas for creative cooking with local food,” says Wendy Dupley, Executive Director of the EDA. “We’re pleased with how the cookbook has come together; kudos to the Medicine Hat College Business Administration students for such an awesome idea.”
The cookbooks are available for purchase in print at the EDA Office, at #28- 419 3rd Street SE in Medicine Hat or downloaded in an eBook version here at a cost of $10.
Savour the Southeast is an initiative of the Economic Development Alliance (EDA) of Southeast Alberta that aims to increase awareness of local food options in southeast Alberta, as well as promote the economic benefits of buying local. Savour the Southeast encourages community involvement in a local food movement, and enhances greater collaboration between local producers, retailers and consumers.Tags: #agriculture, #food, #local, #recipes, #restaurants, Alberta, foodtourism, healthy, natural
