Chef Michael Stadtlander is taking the food truck concept to the next level, and is hitting the road on a school bus, according to Ottawa Magazine, heading east through Ottawa on September 10 toward the third Canadian Chefs' Congress (CCC). As part of an initiative to connect chefs with farmers and the rich soils of The Great White North, the CCC hosts a biennial meeting to discuss the future of Canadian cuisine.
"You get to see the different chefs bring their own products," Stadtlander told the news source. "It's not a trade show, though. People are not trying to profit from it. It's unique that way."
As the culinary mastermind behind Ottawa's Eigensinn Farm, Stadtlander knows precisely how important local and organic food is for Canada's sustainability efforts. The farm has ducks, lambs, pigs and a multitude of seasonal vegetables, which Stadtlander uses for his top-rated restaurant.
Stadtlander will prepare a sold-out meal in conjunction with Simon and Ross Fraser, the brothers who are the chefs and owners of Fraser Café in the New Edinburgh neighbourhood just east of downtown Ottawa.
Holidaymakers who travel to Ontario for a cultural and culinary adventure are in good hands in Ottawa, where chefs work to ensure that every diner is not only satisfied, but goes home with a greater understanding of what makes Canada such a unique country.
