Overview

The Island Chefs Collaborative (ICC) in Victoria, BC has started a ripple effect with its second annual Defending our Backyard Local Food Festival. On May 31, 2009 from 12-4 pm celebrate Vancouver Island's food and producers. Eating and learning are the mainstays of the Festival as it highlights the economic and ecological benefits of buying locally, along with cooking demonstrations by ICC chefs, Vancouver Island beer, wine, cider and mead tastings, oyster shucking, mini farm markets and a west coast-style pig roast. Over ten years ago, Victoria's top chefs committed to supporting local producers first and foremost and came together to form the ICC. Now, about 100 chefs and farmers meet at the beginning of each year to collectively plan the year's crops working together to push the boundaries of what can be grown on Southern Vancouver Island and increasing the region's bio-diversity.

Start Time:12:00:00
