Chefs Congress Fish Fry

Looking out over the magnificent Bay of Fundy

Good Food Revolution spent Sunday night in one of the most beautiful spots in Canada with many of the country’s best Chefs.

The Canadian Chefs’ Congress recently took place in Grand Pré, Nova Scotia on the 17th and 18th of September, with delegates from all over Canada coming together for discourse, dining, and drinking… in no particular order. It was a sharing of ideas fuelled by some truly delicious food, wine, and beer.

Good Food Revolution were there to capture the action on the night of their Nova Scotian Fish Fry with fish provided by Sustainable Blue, and what a night it was!
