Come Enjoy a Flavourful Feast at the NAC This Saturday!

Canada’s holistic nutritionists will combine their knowledge and experience with local celebrity chefs to create Feast of Flavour: Ottawa’s Holistic Food Event. The gastronomic affair will take place at the National Arts Centre on Saturday, November 5, from 11am to 4pm. Chef Lynn Crawford (host of Food Network Canada’s Pitchin’ In) and Chef Michael Blackie (co-host of Food Network Canada’s Chef Off!) will be on hand while holistic nutritionists certified by the Canadian Association of Holistic Nutrition Professionals (CAHN-Pro) invite Ottawa-area foodies to taste mouth-watering foods, wine and beer, and to sample savoury and sweet dishes – all prepared by Canada’s top chefs and local/organic food companies.

This “experiential food event” offers a day of tasting, learning and discussion about the therapeutic properties of traditionally prepared dishes and how research can now confirm that the flavours in some of our favourite foods are also what provide their healing benefits.

“As holistic nutritionists, we want to share our knowledge about food with Canadians in a whole new way,” says Jennifer Sexton, holistic nutritionist and board member of CAHN-Pro. “Tasting and experiencing the flavours of fresh, local dishes prepared using traditional techniques offers a great opportunity to talk about what our ancestors intuitively knew about preparing and preserving foods to maximize both their flavour and healing benefits.”
