Edmonton Comfort Food Cookbook Launch Party
December 4, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
In the days following March 11 of 2020, words like ‘unprecedented’, ‘challenging’ and the ‘new normal’ defined human existence. Yet through these moments of profound grief came stories of resilience and hope as neighbours, businesses, and strangers came together in creative ways to uplift their communities. Edmontonians redefined comfort through innovation; from virtual dinner dates to drive-by birthday celebrations, we found new ways to stay connected while staying six feet apart. Over the past two years, Converse and Cook focused on telling this story by creating an Edmonton community-wide comfort food cookbook. We hope that through cultivating these stories and recipes, we can capture the history of what happened in Edmonton during the pandemic, while also providing a source of comfort and hope to those feeling isolated and disconnected in our city.
Join us in celebrating the launch of this cookbook! Meet the faces behind the over 50 recipes and stories featured, and sample food from businesses featured in the cookbook.
Admission is free or by donation.
The event is from 12-3PM and you’re welcome to drop in anytime during your time slot (however, food samples are limited).
