Queenie Wei - Canada Beef in Calgary, AB
Queenie is a millennial in an agricultural setting (without a farm background). Coming from Canada Beef she represents the Canadian Beef Center of Excellence, a training and learning facility designed and built for the industry from the packers to the producers.
She calls herself a foodie, but that would be a lie because she's a food critic at heart. Culinary art is exactly as named - a form of art - and must be treated as such. She looks for the integration of flavours within a dish, the way it's plated, colours and the wine pairings. As a sommelier candidate, she would say it's her civic duty to try as many varities as she can, for educational purposed only - of course.
She is readily available to sample innovative dishes along with wine pairings!
