Slow Food Edmonton has organized a food conference called Eat Alberta to showcase local food experts. It takes place April 30 in downtown Edmonton, but the extremely organized committee behind it hopes it will evolve into a provincial event.
There will be keynote sessions on urban gardening and urban homesteading, and tastings of fruit wine, honey, coffee and goat cheese. Among the events planned are:
- Cheese-making demonstration
- Apple pie and pastry-making

Organics Delivered out of business
I noticed lots of hits from people looking for information on Organics Delivered. I wrote about trying out their two-box trial in December and mused about getting a regular subscription. Turns out it’s a good thing we didn’t because they’ve gone out of business!
Based on a message from their website, customers will have to go through the annoying bureaucracy of getting refunds via their original method of payment (ie their credit card companies).
