Full description
Take a tour of Calgary's oldest neighborhood and visit 6 locations for food tasting. Taste bison, beef, canola, honey, red fife wheat, root vegetables, and saskatoon berries through lunch, tastings, and dessert.

Meet your expert guide at a native art gallery for the first 2 tastings and the story behind them. Stroll a block to one of Calgary's finest restaurants and enjoy a demo and 2-course lunch with a beverage in the garden.

Then, visit 2 leading-edge culinary mavericks for a hands-on experience at one and a sensory experience at the other. Continue a few blocks for dessert and coffee or tea and learn how pioneers provisioned in the days of the old west, while also getting a feel for what that would be like today.
