2017 : TERROIR 11

Over the last 11 years, we've had the honour of hosting some pretty awesome people. We invite you to take a look back and reflect on the revelry, starting with Terroir 11 : Our Home & Native Land

OUR HOME & NATIVE LAND :
CELEBRATING CANADIAN GASTRONOMY

This year’s Terroir was about exploring Canada: We took stock of how we got to where we are today by honing in on perspectives from people of different generations, cultural heritage and geographical location. Sessions took place concurrently on three major themes: agriculture and fishing, diversity and youth mentorship.
