This week has some of the city’s favorite fall food events like Thanksgiving lunch, speed dating, and international food festivals.
Here are the best Edmonton food events to check out this week in October.
Thanksgiving Heat and Eat Dinners
These dinners offer the catered Thanksgiving experience right at home.
With three options to choose from, you can’t go wrong. Eat it whenever you want, just reheat it in the oven.
Option 1 includes a butter-basted turkey, glazed ham, rosemary garlic mashed potatoes, apple and sage stuffing, sauteed cabbage with bacon and caramelized onions, cranberry sauce, gravy, coleslaw and dinner rolls. For dessert, it’s a choice of pumpkin or pecan pie.
When: Available until October 3rd
Where: At home
