Chef Shaun Edmonstone will be making the trek from rural Grey County north of Toronto to Newfoundland & Labrador this fall to represent at the province’s annual Roots, Rants & Roar food and culture fest.

Running Sept. 16 and 17th in Elliston, NL, the event draws together local talent and local product, with some ‘come-from-aways’ tossed into the mix because… why not?

Huffington Post Says Head to YYC For Great Food

Ask anyone who has visited lately and they’ll tell you Calgary punches way above its weight in the innovative eats department.

It’s hard not to root for the home team, especially when that team is kicking ass and taking names. Huffington Post Canada food and travel blogger Ayngelina Brogan recently turned her gaze to Calgar

Top Of The World At Predator Ridge

British Columbia's Okanagan Valley is a gem that’s not known well enough in Canada, much less outside the country’s borders. But it’s home to internationally renowned wineries, incredible restaurants, and world-class golf. Lots and lots of golf.

Top Gear For Top Chefs

Loka Snacks Opens With a Little Help From Its friends

MRCA’s Chef Cam goes a little ‘loka’ at Loka Snacks, a Toronto pop-up-turned-restaurant that became the city’s first crowdfunded eatery.

From the moment I met Chef Dave Mottershall (Terre Rouge, The Chase) a few years back I knew there was something about him that was different. The passion and excitement he showed when he talked about food was off the hook and I was sure he was bound for great things.

Big In Russia

MRCA lands in St. Petersburg

You can find MRCA's gear in top restaurants from Miami to Portland and from Vancouver to Fogo Island, off the coast of Newfoundland.

Now, you can add St. Petersburg to the list. Russia that is, not Florida. We got some rad pix of the crew at the The Ginza in St. Petes rocking their MRCA gear to prove it.

We’re looking forward to swinging by some time to say hello and, from what we’ve learned about the spot, we’d be in for a treat.
