It’s almost that time of year again! The 2019 RC Show is just around the corner, and with it comes the opportunity to network, learn, grow – and eat and drink of course. This year the show will be exploring all things sustainability, and you bet we’ll be there exploring with them. Here is everything we can’t wait to see, do and sample at the 2019 RC Show.
1. Sustainable Drink Session
Our Terroir Team is moving full speed ahead aboard the zero-waste train, but there is so much left to learn, which is why we can’t wait to attend this workshop.
Iain Griffith and Kelsey Ramage, the Co-founders of Trash Collective, will be leading a session all about zero-waste beverages and how putting conscious bartending into practice and executing a little creativity can help save on costs and lower waste. Trash Tiki anyone?
2. Learning Lounge: Mental Health in the Workplace
In keeping constant with the themes we will be exploring at the 2019 Terroir Symposium, this topic hits close to home. This session will provide resources and guidance to help managers respond to mental health issues they may encounter. Participants will learn how to respond to mental health problems and encourage a psychologically safe workplace culture.
3. Restaurant of the Future
The Restaurant of the Future is a fully immersive restaurant activation that has been constructed to showcase how you can make sustainable efforts in both Front-of-House and Back-of-House. The restaurant will feature repurposed furniture, low-impact lighting and surfaces, and energy efficient equipment. Bringing the experience to life will be an all day café menu with sustainable bites like seaweed brownies, purple corn & banana chips, and blueberry coconut power bars.
And if that wasn’t engaging enough, there will also be sessions exploring the latest in hologram technology and the future of service as Autonetics Universe presents their programmable robots (yes!! Robots!!).
4. The entire Ontario Pavilion
RC said it themselves – we are loco for local! Expect to be wowed by culinary offerings celebrating local, including Best of FoodSTOCK curated by Feast On®, and indigenous culinary demo, and the Best Ontario Veal Sandwich Competition hosted by Food Network Canada's John Cattuci.
5. Coffee in Good Spirits
A competition celebrating two industry staples: coffee and spirits. Competitors will craft two cocktails incorporating the two – their take on the classic Irish Coffee, as well as a signature beverage. We can’t wait to see what they shake up!
