Black Pig Bistro - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Alberta may be known as the home province of the Calgary Stampede, but cattle are just one small aspect of the region’s native bounty. We’ve gathered an acclaimed all-female lineup for an eye-opening and hearty feast that highlights the best local game, produce, and wines from this neighbor up north.

Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.​
