Northern Alberta restaurants take centre stage at this year’s Alberta on the Plate dine around event

Restaurants in Grande Prairie, Peace River and St. Paul are participating in the third annual Alberta on the Plate dine around festival August 6-15.

Eighty-eight unique restaurants in 27 communities throughout Alberta featuring over 200 farms and producers are highlighted in this year’s event.

Better Than Fred’s and Maddhatters from Grande Prairie, Board ‘n’ Barrel from Peace River and Twisted Fork from St. Paul are this year’s Northern Alberta restaurant contingent.

“This slate of restaurants showcases the local flavours that influence each region of the province,” stated Tannis Baker, Director of Big Ideas with Food Tourism Strategies. “From the indigenous peoples who shaped our land, to the immigration influences of the French, Ukrainian, Chinese and Vietnamese, the Alberta terroir is shaped by the people as much as by the land which is reflected in the diversity of the restaurants, food products and culinary creators across Alberta.”

Alberta on the Plate is a province-wide dine-around where participating restaurants offer fixed price menus highlighting local producers, growers, distillers, and brewers.  It takes place in conjunction with Alberta Local Food Week and wraps up the same weekend as Open Farm Days.
