Food Revolution Day 2014

What an amazing weekend of fun and standing up for real food!  Maple Ridge’s Food Revolution Day 2014 was a huge success with the Farm to Fork dinner at the Big Feast Bistro and our Children’s Recipe contest at the Haney Farmer’s Market.

FRD 2014 Food Demo

The highlight of the event was watching these children participate in the live Food Demonstration making Potato Scallion Pancakes with Chef Mike from the Big Feast.  Mike was great with the kids and it was awesome to see the way each child engaged in the cooking project.  I was struck by the ownership that each of the children demonstrated when working both alone and in small groups to complete each step of the recipe.  It was by far my favourite part of this years’ celebration.

Thanks to all who came out and supported Food Revolution Day 2014.  See you next year!
