FOOD DEMO: Sunday August 26 1:00 PM – 1:30 PM

In 2002, Marina Queirolo and her family emigrated to Canada from Argentina. Throughout her career Marina, who is a graphic designer/marketer by trade and entrepreneur by nature, sees in everyday life an opportunity for a new idea. This interest led her to create Surkl Empanadas. With much passion, no shortcuts and a “purist” way of approaching food & food production, Surkl Empanadas is unique in many ways. Embracing the local food movement, the empanadas are made whenever possible with local ingredients and have no added preservatives. Each empanada is handcrafted with a different “repulgue” or decorative braiding to identify the filling inside. In 2010 Marina joined the Evergreen team. Her role as Evergreen Brick Works Food Program Manager will bring on board her passion about food to motivate and engage the community and industry to collaborate and work together towards a common goal: “A strong local food economy”.
