Food can certainly please your palate but it can also evoke a sense of place. Think, freshly caught seafood on the West and East coasts, or eating a just-picked strawberry from a local farmer’s market in the Okanagan or in Alberta’s heartland. Cities like Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary are home to some of the top restaurants and chefs in North America where you can watch, or learn the secrets in private cooking classes.
