With the opening cermonies of the Olympics last night and all the coverage that the Olympics have been recieving over the last week, I thought it would be important to take a look at how Canadian agriculture is being represented at these Winter Games
The government of Canada is promoting Canada’s food and trying to stretch international markets through the 2010 Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Federal Minister of Agriculture sat down with domestic and international media this past Thursday morning for a breakfast made of Canada’s finest products and foods. The breakfast included the Canadian culinary talents of Michael Smith and many other Canadian chefs cooking up a variety of items that included wheat, beef, pork, eggs, canola oil, maple syrup, lentils, soybeans, and ice wine.
This is a fantastic way to draw attention to the great variety of products that Canadian farmers produce. More information, videos, and recipes from the breakfast can be found online at http://www.eatcanadian.ca/sav-eng.htm
