Discover the Headwaters Region’s best artisanal food, drink and creativity. Join local chefs, Alton Mill studio artists, and wine, beer and cider makers for one delicious weekend. Watch chefs in action and artists in action! Mark your calendar for June 20 – 21, noon to 5 pm each day.
Throughout the Mill’s studios and art galleries there will be food & beverage tasting stations and special art activities.
The Main Stage features chef demos, live music, a daily cook-off and on Saturday, a paint-off. For the cook-offs, two duelling chefs will be presented with identical “Black Boxes” of local food ingredients out of which they will have 45 minutes to create a culinary masterpiece, vying for the coveted “This Chef is Hot” Award!
Immediately following Saturday’s cook-off, a half dozen artists will be given another artfully-arranged set of the same foods, which they will interpret using paint on canvas.
Cuisine-Art is honoured to have been designated a finalist for Culinary Tourism Event of the Year at the Ontario Tourism 2014 Awards of Excellence, a Top 100 Festival for 2015 by Festivals & Events Ontario and Best Culinary Tourism Experience in 2013 by Hills of Headwaters Tourism.
