Janice Beaton’s connection to Food Day Canada goes back many years. We celebrated together on Cape Breton Island, her familial home, in 2007. On a hilltop in Mabou Mines, high above the ocean, we grilled good steaks and partied long into the night.
Her business, however, is in Calgary where, since 2000, Janice Beaton Fine Cheese has been a premiere specialty retailer of artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, and accompaniments. She opened her restaurant, FARM, in 2008.
She and her staff are cheese-mongers par excellence! Their knowledge of Canadian cheese is extraordinary and their selection is excellent, from Quebec’s Oka Classique, Le Migneron de Charlevoix, Le 1608 (made with the milk of Canadienne cows), and the unctuous Riopelle to Alberta’s Sylvan Star Gouda, to Ontario’s Glengarry Cheese’s Celtic Blue to the full line of David Wood’s Salt Spring Island cheeses.
You can join them for lunch at The Grilled Cheese Bar where they also serve daily cheese plates. Private tours of the Cheese Case for groups are in demand, as are their beautiful cheese-laden gift boxes and semi-monthly Saturday afternoons they demonstrate and sample from a number of producers and suppliers. JBFC can also host off-site events customised to the client’s needs.
Food Day Canada 2012
“Food Day Canada, on Saturday August 4th, is a chance for all Canadians to join
hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers; our chefs
and researchers…and above all, our home cooks. You can head to one of the
enthusiastic Food Day Canada restaurants or shops, like FARM or JBFC, or you
can plan your own party! Absolutely anywhere! Row to a distant shore to light a campfire…barbecue some fish…sweep off the deck for a family supper…dig a
roasting pit…fire up the grill…and use only Canadian ingredients to create a feast or a simple dinner that honours our extraordinary culinary history. To help you create your fabulous celebration, JBFC is offering 10% off all our Canadian cheeses and Canadian products on Saturday August 4th.” -Executive Chef Pete Goldberg, along with Kelsey and Adam of FARM.
