It’s never too early to think about Christmas…so what about Christmas in November at one of the most luxurious resorts in Canada? Now in its 29th year, Christmas in November is a Canadian food and wine festival created in 1988 by the Jasper Park Lodge and the Edmonton Journal. In fact, it is one of the most prestigious culinary festivals in Canada. The festival takes places in the heart of Jasper National park at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge which is spread out over 700 acres of pristine forest. Last week, I attended a media event at Vij’s with a personal appearance by the chef himself Chef Vikram Vij. Here is what you can expect this year at Christmas in November during Canad’s 150th anniversary.
Cooking, Dining, Decorating and More!
There’s so much to do at Christmas in November…so where to begin? Attendees will be treated to interactive classes, holiday market, holiday gala and photos with Santa. And every day, you will be wined and dined by the culinary team. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, snacks – you will not go hungry! One of the most talked about activities is the “Man Cabin” where ladies are welcomed. The “Man Cabin” will be hosted by various presenters and there will be grilling, scotch tasting, pool tables, sports on the big screen and many more masculine entertaining tips!
Celebrity Chef LineUp
Headlining the event this year is Chef Chuck Hughes, a Canadian chef, Food Network TV personality (Chuck’s Day Off, Chopped Canada, Chuck & Danny), and restaurateur.
