“Canada’s Ag Day is a national initiative that brings special attention to local farmers and the delicious food that we all enjoy. This cook-along will help our community learn about how food is grown and raised, while they are cooking with those ingredients – reinforcing the role of agriculture in their lives,” said Stan Vander Waal, president of BC Agriculture Council.

The free event is Feb. 23 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Register at https://www.bcaitc.ca/blog/cook-along-celebrity-chef-randle.
