Summer may be a distant memory, but eating fresh, local seasonal food is what memories are made of. We wait all year for juicy, succulent tomatoes and the crunch of Ontario corn.
The Greenbelt Fund and Ontariofresh.ca, in collaboration with 100km Foods Inc., CanadaGap, GS1 Canada, NSF-GFTC, OSCIA, and OMAFRA brought together farmers with professionals from different sectors and institutions dealing with food safety at the Introduction to Food Safety and Certification Workshop on April 3 and 4 2014.
One of the first signs of the beginning of the growing season in Ontario is the arrival of fresh, ruby-red rhubarb. For the April Challenge, our participants were invited to create a spectacular dish with this vegetable that is most commonly used as a fruit.
When the monthly Local Food Challenges were revealed, Challenger St. James High School in Guelph didn’t waste any time in putting together their submission using five Ontario ingredients: chicken, sweet potatoes, leeks, mushrooms, and cheese. By looking at this photo, would you believe this recipe was created and executed by high school students?
