This event includes a sit down two-course lunch, knife and spice demos and four other tastings that reveal Alberta’s signature foods. Guests will toast the city’s “Maverick Spirit” and leave with food mementos.
Moonstone Creation Native Art Gallery
Learn about Alberta's first mavericks and their food and culture in this visually stunning gallery.
Built in 1891, this historical building is home to the highest ranking Canadian restaurant to make San Pellegrino's Top 100 restaurants.
Now with 5 locations across Canada this original features the very best in hand forged Japanese kitchen knives. We'll have a fun demo & taste of something completely unexpected.
The Silk Road Spice Merchant
Everyone falls in love with this shop. It's a cook's dream. Every spice you could ever want all under one roof. Here's where we "blend".
Think provisions! This is the village grocer complete with butcher, deli and wonderful bakery. We'll enjoy a luscious dessert in the cafe.
The Nash and Off Cut Bar
Built as a boarding house for railway workers, famous for prohibition "whisky running" we'll check out this watering hole to toast each other as Maverick Spirits.
We meet at Moonstone Creation - Native Art Gallery and Gift Shop at 1219 10 Avenue S.E.
There is free parking across the street from Rouge Restaurant on 12 Street S.E. (on the right before the 12 Street bridge) - 2 blocks north of our meeting place.
All of our tastings are paired with a hand-crafted non-alcohol beverage. Due to provincial regulations, we are currently unable to include alcohol in our price. On some of our tours, key partners will offer a specific alcohol pairing an exclusive price to our guests which is then payable directly to that vendor.

My sister and I took the Inglewood Edible Enticements tour. We are native Calgarians and walked away feeling a renewed love and appreciation for this quirky and historic part of our city and the entrepreneurs that have made it so. I highly recommend this tour and will be signing up for others.
