I’ve had the pleasure of being a restaurant judge for Calgary’s  Avenue Magazine for several years now. It may surprise you if you’ve not visited Calgary in awhile, but our city is filled with talented chefs and great produce to inspire them.

One of our newest restaurants, Pigeonhole, was even voted Canada’s best new restaurant by Air Canada’s Enroute magazine this year.

While our oil sector is not as slick as it could be right now Alberta’s agriculture and tourism sectors are flourishing and according to this recent Avenue article, Calgary’s dining scene got even stronger in 2015.

Here’s that detailed piece from Avenue with something for every taste in the  40 New Restaurants That Opened in Calgary in 2015

Kudos to writer Allan Willerton for researching and writing this piece.

Thanks to Calgary’s Avenue Magazine Executive Editor Jennifer Hamilton for so clearing capturing and highlighting my company Calgary Food Tours Inc in the article above.

Yes, it’s true. When I’m not writing, I’m out on the streets of Calgary leading food tours. The tours are amazing because of the depth of Calgary’s food scene and the terrific partners we choose to showcase. Yet many people still don’t know what a food tour is or what we do.
