We're very excited here at Casel Marché to have our Calgary Home + Design Show debut this month. Market 17, Vie Café, Cassis Bistro and J. Webb Wine Merchant can be found on the Trail Appliances Cooking Stage on Thursday, September 20 and Saturday, September 22.
On September 20 at 6 p.m. Vie Café and Market 17 host an hour-long presentation called How to Cook 'Local'. If you've ever wondered how to take simple steps toward incorporating more locally and regionally sourced and/or organic food into your regular meal planning, in a cost-effective way, this interactive session will show you how. While the growing season for local produce in Alberta is rather short, Calgary and Alberta are home to dozens and dozens of quality local food and drink producers whose fantastic products can be incorporated year round.
On September 22 at 3 p.m. Vie Café, Market 17, Cassis Bistro and J. Webb Wine Merchant take the stage together to showcase what the Casel Marché collective is up to. This hour-long segment - Field and Vineyard to Table - will highlight the special ways we work with local food producers and food artisans, and with each other within the Marché, to create a culinary shopping experience unique to Calgary. Cassis Bistro will cook with ingredients from Market 17 and J. Webb will provide wine pairings. Vie Café is, of course, doing dessert.
Audience members at both cooking stage presentations will have the chance to sample what we're making live on the stage, and will enjoy a complimentary wine tasting with J. Webb Wine Merchant during and after the presentations.
All Trail Appliances Cooking Stage presentations are free with admission to the Home + Design Show.
