Range Road Dinner Alberta

Range Road Gourmet “Farm to Fork” Dinners are a local food – local chef initiative. Travelling between local farms, Chef Blair Lebsack and Caitlin Fulton utilize the food grown and design menus based on regional and seasonal products.

Farm to Fork experiences feature local in-season harvest vegetables – here at Prairie Gardens in Bon Accord. Chef Blair Lebsack of RGE RD Restaurant is excited to create a fabulous dinner with our own beautiful, garden-fresh vegetables alongside proteins from neighboring farms. The first dinner of the season is a five course early summer showcase of what’s ready in the garden! Winter onions, early greens, edible flowers and proteins from neighbouring farms are sure to dazzle your  taste buds as we enjoy a community style long-table dinner amongst the blossoms.

These fabulous five-course dinners will be paired with carefully selected BC wines and a local cocktail.

2018 Dates

In Alberta, it can be chilly or rainy in the morning, but sunny in the afternoon – perfect weather for farm dinners. As soon as the sun goes down, you will truly appreciate a warm jacket in the fall! We have both indoor and outdoor facilities. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Bring a jacket for the evening, as we may be outdoors, and it cools off when the sun goes down. Dinners are a “go” rain or shine.
Dress for being outdoors! Dress code is snappy country. Weather permitting, we will take you for a farm tour, followed by a hands on herb rub making activity with a sample in a beautiful hand made high-fire porcelain jar. Then it’s off to our secret dinner location in one of our many farm fields, with dinner to begin around 6:00 pm. Our heated indoor Greenhouse Pavilion is our all-weather back-up plan in case of rain!
As you can imagine, hosting gourmet dinners on the farm requires extensive planning and preparation. Tickets will not be mailed out, as we will have your name on our guest list. Please bring your Paypal Receipt as proof of payment. Refunds can be accommodated 14 business days in advance.
