If there’s one thing that sets Devour! apart from other film festivals, it’s the food. And plenty of it!
Meat lovers will want to catch the feature-length film Barbecue that explores how an everyday event transcends culture as a way to celebrate community, cooking and friendship.
You won’t want to miss the Jamaican Jerk Pig Roast as part of the Devour! Street Food Party Thursday evening. The folks at TapRoot Farms are experts in the art of the pig roast, habitually selling out at their seasonal feasts.
Saturday morning three culinary schools from across Canada will fire up the Big Green Egg for Devour! The Grills: Culinary School Takedown Edition. Sample the grilled fare or peruse the Wolfville Farmers Market for all your carnivorous needs.
From the Opening Night Gala to several celebrity dinners, locally raised meat is sure to be celebrated. If breakfast is your thing, the Devour! Golden Tine Awards Brunch serves up what’s sure to be an exceptional brunch from some of the city’s raising stars. One to feel good about is Sunday night’s Great Devour! Chicken Dinner where celebrity chefs from coast to coast prepare a free chicken dinner in support of regional food banks.
Whatever your taste, Devour! has something to satisfy. #eatitup
