A free cook-along with a celebrity chef marks Canada’s Ag Day later this month.

BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation and We Heart Local BC are partnering to provide the free online cook-along with celebrity chef Trevor Randle.

Randle guides participants through two healthy, B.C.-grown, quick and budget-friendly recipes – Thai chicken curry (vegan option available) and baked lemon pudding with B.C. blueberry compote.

“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.
