Edmontonians Contribute to Royal Reception in Ottawa

I never, for a minute, thought I’d be a part of a meal presented to a Royal couple, but here I am in Ottawa, in the kitchen at The Governor General’s Rideau Hall watching food being prepped for tomorrows’s reception.

We brought yak tenderloin from Springridge Ranch and Sylvan Star’s award-winning Gouda, along with musk ox, Arctic Char, Davis Strait shrimp and sea urchin – all from Nunavut. These products are only some of the foods from our nation’s bounty that will be served to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

I will have a longer report when I return including pictures of the finished dishes. Tune into CBC Edmonton AM June 30th at 8:15 a.m. to hear me speak with Mark Scholz about the dinner.
