An evening with a conscience.
Monday, September 20, 2010
Robert Kenner, producer and director of the hit documentary Food, Inc., is the keynote speaker for Local Food, Global Perspectives – an Atlantic Canada Lobster Dinner during the World Culinary Tourism Summit on September 20, 2010. And you are invited to attend.
This is your opportunity to not only enjoy an incredible, locally-sourced dinner, but to be inspired by one of the world’s foremost authorities on the importance of local food.
Your unforgettable meal begins with a first course “Local Culinary Journey” where you will sample your way through Nova Scotia. Before your main course of Atlantic Canada lobster, enjoy some food for thought, as Kenner speaks about the high cost of cheap, mass-produced food and its effect on our environment, health, economy and workers’ rights. It’s sure to be an inspiring and thought-provoking reminder of the importance of supporting our local food providers. For dessert, enjoy the decadent Salon du Chocolat, including chocolate sampling and an 18th century chocolate demonstration, compliments of the Fortress of Louisbourg.
Local Food, Global Perspectives is an Atlantic Canada lobster dinner hosted by Taste of Nova Scotia on Monday, September 20, 2010 at the World Trade and Convention Centre. Tickets, $125/person are available at www.ticketatlantic.ca.
