Host Edmonton Giveaway

Do you have a passion for food? Well I sure hope you have heard about Host Edmonton!

Host Edmonton is “a combined conference and festival that puts you in the mix with top hospitality professionals, exposing you to trends, techniques and ingredients that are guaranteed to elevate your next hosting experience. The conference is open to all people with a passion for food and delivering great hospitality. Whether you host guests at home or in a restaurant,” Host Edmonton is the place to be.

The event kicks off with a Kick Off Party on the evening of Thursday, May 22. There, you will be treated to some of the best local sips and bites as you celebrate Host Edmonton’s premiere, featuring a live musical act and a DJ. And who’s the musical act you may ask? Oh, just some little band that won Rolling Stone’s “Choose The Cover” competition in 2011… that’s right, The Sheepdogs. Sounds pretty great, right?


The 2-DayConference itself takes place on Friday, May 23 and Saturday, May 24. There, you will have opportunity to partake in different sessions and demonstrations. Speaker topics include finding your voice online, learning new mixology techniques, spice strategies and cooking methods at expert-led demonstrations, along with a variety of Food Channel keynotes and Brain Food sessions. The event has many different awesome speakers, including Chopped judge Marc Murphy,  Canadian celebrity chef Christine Cushing and Iron Chef America’s Kevin Brauch (aka The Thirsty Traveller). Check out a full session listing here!

So what’s up for grabs?
– 2, 2-Day Conference passes + Kick Off Party tickets

And how do you enter?
