 Regional Cuisine
Regional cuisine advocates the usage of quality locally grown ingredients, in union with the culture, geography, and history of Alberta. Alberta's best chefs, at restaurants, bistros, catered food events, B&B's and meal preparation establishments are using Alberta's best home grown foods to create unforgettable meals all year round.

Culinary Tourism

Culinary tourism is the marriage of tourism and regional cuisine. It advocates experiencing the food of the country, region or area, and is considered a vital component of the tourism experience. In 2012, the Alberta Culinary Tourism Alliance (ACTA) was created to bring together agricultural, culinary, tourism and hospitality professionals in a forum for positive, sustainable growth. By working together – across sectors and geographic boundaries to build alliances and communication channels – Alberta’s culinary appeal for travellers can be enlightened, enlivened and enriched.
