A seat at our Table - The Mustard Seed 2015

Are you ready to join in on the conversation Alberta?

“Eating is so intimate. It’s very sensual. When you invite someone to sit at your table and when you want to cook for them, you’re inviting a person into your life - Maya Angelo

The goal for “A seat at our table” is simple: to gather interesting Albertans together around a table to enjoy an amazing meal of locally grown Alberta food, engage in rich & deep conversation, and share the outcome while we celebrate our love of this land – linking it back to business & agriculture. It’s all about story telling - “A seat at our table” was designed to bridge the gap between urban and rural (farm/farmer), getting these two groups closer together, prompting consumers to ask more questions rather than making assumptions; but it’s became bigger than that – it evolved into everything “Alberta”. The economy, sports, arts, culture, travel, food, agriculture, philanthropy, talent.

Late last November for many of us it wasn’t about what was on the menu; instead it was about who was coming to dinner, as our team of dedicated chefs and servers feed over 360 guests of the Mustard Seed Community in Calgary, all sitting around the ‪#‎ABtable‬. This evening served two purposes, giving back from what you’ve taken from and making good food accessible to all.

On behalf of the entire #ABtable team; Julie Van Rosendaal Fraser Abbott Darren MacLean John Jackson Connie DeSousa Paul Rogalski Tara Tanchak Carol MacDonald Shmygol James Barry Neil Zeller Darren Jacknisky Scott Schiffner Donna McTaggart Christopher Heatherington Jim Button Graham Sherman Shaun Haney Duncan Ly and a cast of 100's more who were part of this, we’d like to both congratulate and thank each one of you for being part of this movement that we’ve all had a hand in doing; as it could have not happened without you being part of the conversation.
