A Taste of the Wild

Buy Tickets


Explore your wild roots with a food historian — and a memorable meal.

Wild foods once made up most of our diet, including native grains, wild-caught game, and foraged berries. Turning away from processed foods, Canadians are again embracing more local and wild fare.

Join the Museum’s food historian Laura Sanchini for an evening of delicious, mouth-watering discoveries! Start your evening in Gallery 3 of the Canadian History Hall, where you’ll learn more about Canada’s relationship to food. Then, sample a four-course meal featuring lobster panna cotta, bison striploin, and a maple pudding chômeur. Listen as world-renowned, local sommelier Véronique Rivest explains how the wild-food movement has influenced vineyards in Canada and around the world, as you sip perfectly paired wines.

Your evening includes a visit to the Canadian History Hall, a four-course meal, and four wine pairings.

This event is part of our ongoing A Taste of History series, and requires advance registration.
