Canmore Uncorked – an annual celebration of Canmore’s incredible food culture

Canmore Uncorked is a bit like Christmas. There’s 12 days of fabulous festivities. Only instead of all those maids a milking and lords a leaping, there’s set price menus, free tasting experiences, a whiskey, wine and beer festival, progressive dinners, cooking classes, and of course, our own Canmore Food Tours’ behind the scenes food tours (more about those soon).   My name is Callandra Caufield and I’m the operations manager at Alberta Food Tours, Inc.

After more than a decade in business, I’ve…

Calgary Food Tours featured in Air Transat’s Atmosphere magazine

Here’s a link to the article called “Surprising Calgary” (pages 46 – 47). It was part of an Air Transat feature on Alberta as “The Canadian Eden”. How cool is that? Kudos to the writers Helene Laurendeau, Mamzelle Poppy and Sarah-Emilie Nault who came with their photography crew to enjoy four Alberta cities in four…
