      EVENT DETAILS
      Food Tourism Forum

      Join Letchworth Gateway Villages and the Culinary Tourism Alliance for Celebrating our Taste of Place: an industry forum on growing food tourism in the Genesee Valley Region. This forum is a chance for local food industry professionals to gather and learn how to accelerate our region's potential as a food destination. Eric Boyar, chef at sixthirtynine, a farm-to-table restaurant in Woodstock, Ontario, Canada, will be the forum’s keynote speaker. Chef Boyar serves locally sourced, seasonal menus that illustrate how local producers and restaurants can work together to create memorable dining experiences with the power to draw visitors to rural settings. A panel of local food innovators will follow: Elise Barnard of OSB Ciderworks, Jacquie Billings of the Hole in the Wall Restaurant and Lounge and Ration Wine Bar, and Maureen Wheeler, Deputy Director at Livingston County Development, will discuss how the region can define itself through food and the challenges and opportunities involved in growing this aspect of our local economy. Travis Barlow (the Hole in the Wall Restaurant and Lounge, Ration Wine Bar), Brian Simmons (the Yard of Ale), Sean Wolf and Andy Zalar (formerly Farmer’s Creekside Tavern & Inn), and the culinary team from the Genesee Country Village and Museum will prepare a lunch of local ingredients that tells a culinary story about the Genesee Valley. The Culinary Tourism Alliance will be sharing the outcomes of the assessment and market research they've been conducting in the area over the past few months. Following the forum and lunch, guests will have the option to participate in a one hour field experience with the Genesee Country Village and Museum to learn how they use food and taste experiences to provide meaningful visits for their customers.   The forum is a great opportunity to meet likeminded colleagues in the food industry and learn how to better market your business. We hope to see you there!
