For the next six days, Sir Winston Churchill Square will be transformed into a gourmand’s dream come true. A Taste of Edmonton kicked off Friday and more than 40 restaurants are serving up dishes in the heart of downtown.

Everything from Blue Willow Restaurant’s pineapple sunset chicken to Zucchero Cappuccino Bar’s Calabrese potatoes with chipotle aioli, it’s all available for sampling.

What goes well with beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon? How about a cup of Charlie Flint beer from Alley Kat Brewing or a glass of red wine from Kadala in Spain? If you have a culinary craving, A Taste of Edmonton has your fix.
