Can You Smell What the Rockies Are Cooking?

Four Jasper businesses are stepping up to the plate for next month's Alberta on the Plate

Alberta on the Plate (AOTP) is held every year during August. The festival hosts more than 100 restaurants across 27 communities throughout Alberta. AOTP also showcases loads of products, including locally grown ingredients from over 200 farms.

From fine dining to fast food, AOTP has you covered. 

Four restaurants from Jasper will be featured during AOTP. These restaurants are Olive Bistro and Lounge, Evil Dave’s Grill, Tekarra Restaurant, and Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge (JPL). Evil Dave’s Grill and Tekarra Restaurant are owned by Mike and Cyndi Day, a couple from Jasper. 

Tekarra Restaurant is inspired by the wilderness surrounding the Canadian Rockies. On the other hand, Evil Dave’s Grill features a globally inspired menu showing off Alberta’s best bison, beef, poultry, and produce.

Steph Kalamoutsos and Huculak, the owners of Olive Bistro and Lounge, are also looking forward to AOTP.

Olive Bistro and Lounge offers diners high quality dishes made using locally sourced ingredients from Alberta’s small farms. If you have a more adventurous palate, you’ll want to hit up JPL.

JPL has a few dining establishments under its belt, ranging from Greek to Italian. JPL also offers à la carte and locally-brewed beverages. 

Jasper isn’t the only town stepping up its local cuisine for AOTP. Cochrane, Hinton, Banff, Canmore, and many other towns will be participating in AOTP. A full list of all participating restaurants can be found on the AOTP website.

Keep in mind that AOTP is one of many events taking place during August. Participants can also enjoy Local Food Week events such as Alberta Open Farm Days.

During this event, Albertans have the chance to visit local farms and learn about where their food comes from through educational initiatives.
