On Feb. 12, Taste Alberta and the Alberta Diabetes Foundation are teaming up to put on the #ABFoodFight Celebrity Culinary Combat! TV food personality, author, and home economist Mairlyn Smith will “battle” local Chef Steve Brochew of the award-winning French-Canadian restaurant Chartier, in a timed food box challenge hosted by the Edmonton Journal’s food and feature writer Liane Faulder.
The event, which takes place at The Westin Edmonton downtown from 11:30-1:30, will teach attendees about healthy eating and eating local, and how these two things can help turn the tide against the diabetes epidemic in Alberta.
The Alberta Diabetes Foundation, with its #ABFoodFight campaign, is taking action to share information to help arm Albertans with the tools they need to create a healthy lifestyle, including using the rich, healthy, tapestry of products available locally.
All proceeds will support the Alberta Diabetes Foundation funding innovative research for the prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes, so it’s a truly wonderful cause, which is why I’m very excited to partner with Taste Alberta and the Alberta Diabetes Foundation to raise awareness for the event— and give away a pair of tickets!

Taste Alberta reached out to me to see if I would be interested in helping promote the event, attend the event, and give away a pair of tickets to the event.
