Food Day Canada is a chance for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers; our chefs and researchers…and, above all, our home cooks.
It began in 2003 as The World’s Longest Barbeque, a massive, Canada-wide response to the sanction of Canadian beef exports by our largest trading partner and the dramatic hardship it imposed on our agricultural community. The WLBBQ was a huge success and has evolved into Food Day Canada®, an annual mid-summer celebration, always held on the Saturday of the August long weekend, when we share Canada’s rich culinary heritage, our delicious northern bounty and the best managed food system on the planet.
Food Day Canada is a showcase of Anita Stewart’s life’s work and years of hard core, on the road, research. Since 1983, she has been traveling Canada’s vast expanse, identifying and writing about Canada’s essential nature as a regionally diverse food nation. Before “local, regional, seasonal” was in vogue, Anita was visiting the country inns, farmer’s markets, First Nations’ communities and the lighthouses of Canada. Today, she counts among her friends some of Canada’s food leaders.
The James Beard Foundation’s mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor chefs and other leaders making America's food culture more delicious, diverse, and sustainable for everyone.
The James Beard Foundation Awards are annual awards presented by the James Beard Foundation for excellence in cuisine, culinary writing, and culinary education in the United States. The Awards were established in 1990 and are often called "The Oscars of Food."
