Terroir brings together innovative and creative influencers from the field of hospitality, including chefs, food and beverage experts, writers and business leaders.
To mark Canada’s 150th birthday, Terroir will honour our diverse culinary landscape and look at those paving the way for the next 150 years with their panel “Canadians in a Foreign Land.” Featuring hospitality industry expats who are creating names for themselves internationally, their stories on what it’s like to represent Canada on the world culinary stage will be moderated by Sarah Musgrave, Executive Editor of EnRoute.
