Manitoba food entrepreneurs Bessie Hatzitrifonos (Bessie’s Best) and Peter Fehr (Gourmet Inspirations) really like it local. The two are once again sharing their passion for the taste of this place at #LoveLocalMB15, a locals only celebration of food and drink.
Further to a love of homegrown grub this pair shares the dream of good food for all Manitobans. That’s why Bessie and Peter are once again donating part of LocalLocal proceeds to Food Matters Manitoba. Third party fundraisers like LoveLocal make more good food work, like cooking classes for North End kids, happen. To host your own fundraising event in support of Food Matters Manitoba, please get in touch with Erin Bend. It would be her pleasure to make that happen.
Last year’s inaugural event, think farmers’s market meets kitchen party, flooded the Winnipeg Winter Club with 350 foodies eager to spring into market season. This year LoveLocal has grown into a larger venue with tons of free parking so more folks can try and buy food and drink from dozens of made in Manitoba vendors. Adding to the evenings luxe retail therapy vibe are live music and a complimentary glass of wine.
