Ottawa Food: A Hungry Capital Book Launch At West End Well, Nourishment for a Change

During the past 20 years the food scene in Ottawa has changed from a landscape of pub grub-driven dining to a vibrant environment for trendy eateries and forward-thinking chefs. The once bland and mundane culinary culture has been transformed, and the result is an array of destination restaurants and purveyors of high-quality food and drink products. Many of these new and successful players leverage the nearby farms — nearly 2,000 in total — and artisan food makers that can provide a huge range of ingredients and possibilities.

Don Chow and Jennifer Lim, authors of Ottawa Food, A Hungry Capitol, and bloggers for Food Prints (http://foodieprints.com/) tackle an array of topics in this book ranging from our local food system, sustainability to local farming.

Please join us at the West End Well.
