Air Canada’s EnRoute Magazine’s 10 Best Restaurants in Canada

In my “promotions” mailbox today was an email from Air Canada that was breathlessly titled:  The list is out!  The list it turns out was their annual top 10 best restaurants across Canada list.

The article is nicely art directed, well written and includes a video for the top 3 restaurants.  I clicked and starting to watch thinking it would be some sort of Air Canada promo (how did I ever get to be so cynical) it didn’t take long before I realized that these were really well produced, interesting over views of 3 chef and how their passion and love for cooking, food, and sustainability helped them build an amazing restaurant.  Often I should add in places most people don’t think of as culinary dinning out capitals.

These videos feel like mini documentaries showing the chefs visiting local farms and purveyors to give you not just a sense of the restaurant, but of the place/location it is in.

Kudos to Air Canada for doing such a great job in producing informative, beautifully done videos and creating a list of restaurants in places all across Canada from Galiano Island, British Columbia to St John New Brunswick.

Each video made me want to go visit, which is probably why Air Canada’s EnRoute magazine does a 10 best list every year.  It’s a brilliant way of introducing new places to visit and to motivated to go by way of your stomach (oh and of course you can get there on Air Canada).

The videos are so well done that I think anyone interested in food, cooking, sustainability and restaurants will find them worth watching.

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com
