Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected to spend some time in Drumheller over the summer holidays and a food author with ties to the valley has some suggestions on where to eat.
Elizabeth Chorney-Booth wrote an article for Culinaire Magazine in Calgary taking her readers on a culinary road trip of Southern Alberta.
"My mother's family is from Drumheller so it's a part of the province that I'm pretty familiar with," she told 99.5 Drum FM. "It's been interesting to watch it grow over the decades as far as food options go."
Her article covers old stand-bys like Whifs Flap Jack House, Bernie and the Boys Bistro and the Last Chance Saloon, but also a relative newcomer to the local restaurant scene.
"I wanted to mention Sublime Food and Wine too because I think that's the kind of thing that people might not expect from a community like Drumheller," explained Chorney-Booth.
"Everytime I drive out there I notice new things: I hear other people who travel talk about where they eat when they go," she continued. "It's always nice to see people start new businesses, especially independent restaurants (with) local people people trying their hand at their own businesses. It's nice to be able to come out and support them."
