A Recipe for Indulgence

For 13 years, Indulgence, a Canadian epic of food and wine, has helped introduce local food producers to Edmonton chefs, who showcase their dishes with estate wines from B.C. and Ontario. The idea? To celebrate our gastronomic community, enjoy delicious food and drink, and to establish long-term working relationships between chefs and area farmers, ranchers, cheesemakers and producers.

Indulgence also raises money for two excellent causes: The Junior League of Edmonton’s children’s programs and the Indulgence Slow Food Edmonton Bursary at NAIT. A donation of more than $30,000 funds annual bursaries for NAIT culinary students and alumni to learn more about local food.

Indulgence showcases regional farmers and ranchers, pairing them with a restaurant and a Canadian estate winery or brewery to make culinary magic. It’s a sellout every year, with more than 400 guests enjoying seasonal dishes and tasting some of Canada’s best wines, as well as offerings from regional food and fruit wine producers such as Newget, Birds & Bees and Barr Estate fruit wineries.
