A course on culinary tourism drew a crowd at Confederation College Friday.
Experts from the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance were teaching locals how to bring in more visitors by using fine dining as an attraction.
Among the 70 participants at the event were local vegetable producers, cattle farmers, hotel owners and restaurateurs.
They were given a lot of ideas on how to create a more appealing restaurant, and make the food they create stand out.
A main selling point of the event was that it opened up a lot of networking options and started the conversation about how important the local food movement has been in larger tourism industries.
Another discussion was which authentic tastes Thunder Bay has to offer.
City officials say Thunder Bay is well on its way to building a diverse array of culinary styles, to attract a different brand of visitors.
