After a successful first year this past winter, Edmonton’s Feed The Soul Dining Week has just announced the details for its 2nd annual festival.
Set to take place from Feb. 2 to Feb. 11, 2024, the dining week will once showcase and celebrate Black-owned food and drink businesses serving up cuisine from regions such as Senegal, East Africa, Italy, Jamaica, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Nigeria and Trinidad.
There will be 13 Black-owned restaurants taking part in Feed The Soul Dining Week including Kilimanjaro VIP and Sauce Modern Caribbean Cuisine and Liberian Cuisine on Wheels. Businesses will offer special menus for $20-$45 as well as daily dish features for just $10.
“Edmontonians showed our community there’s a place in their hearts (and bellies) for traditional food like tibs fir fir, jerk chicken and curry goat roti.” said executive director of Africa Centre Sam Juru in today’s announcement. “Having Black food and culture celebrated and shared in such a profound and meaningful way has an incredible impact all year round.”
While Feed The Soul Dining Week officially kicks off on Feb. 2, Edmontonians can get a preview of the dining week on Jan. 27 by way of a food tour hosted by Linda Hoang. (Tickets are $45 and available via Eventbrite.)
