Michelin comes knocking at a Canadian film festival known for its carefully curated food and wine pairings at red-carpet dinners.

The Nova Scotia festival, which in earlier years hosted Jacque Pepin, the late Anthony Bourdain and San Francisco-based chef Dominique Crenn of the two-Michelin-starred Atelier Crenn, also allows celebrity chefs to champion local produce and wines from local sun-kissed farms and wineries.

Renowned Chicago chef Jean Joho created a classic dish — a tender cylinder of pheasant with braised cabbage, mushrooms, little dumplings called knepfla and a cranberry sauce — that bears the marks of his native Alsace, but is seasonal, local and simple.

“I met many farmers here and they think organic. One had 15 kinds of radishes. People are passionate here. They care about food. They respect the food,” Joho, who runs Everest in Chicago and Eiffel Tower Restaurant in Las Vegas, said of rural Nova Scotia, where Louisiana’s Cajuns originated.
