Comfort for Colder Days [Farmers Market Bibimbap]

It’s almost that time, guys.  Our sweaters button a little tighter, zippers up a little higher as the once-lush, green landscape becomes caped in a dull shade of brown as we wait for the snow to fall. Winter is coming. But not without one last harvest.  We wanted the last summer Farmer’s Feast to be […]

Farmers Feast 03: Tomatillo Margarita & Strawberry Beet Granita

WHOA FALL. When did you get here? Wasn’t it just August 1st?  This month’s Farmers Feast was set to come out mid-August but some events I was working on just took over and before I knew it we were in September.  I do love fall (endlessly), but I’m feeling a bit mournful about the end […]

Farmers Feast 02: A Promise of Picnics [Toasted Rye w Labneh, Fava/Sweet Pea/Mizuna Spread + Cold Avocado & Cucumber Soup]

I promised myself I would picnic more this summer. Spend more time outside, feeling the breeze dance on my skin and the sounds of passing voices buzz in my ear, pack up a cooler filled with cold soups and icy drinks, sandwich-making ingredients and snacks and remember what it was like to not have deadlines […]

2013 Season – Farmers Feast 01 [Ramp, Green Garlic & Asparagus Frittata with Mennonite Sausage]

At the start of the 2012 season at the Ottawa Farmers Market, I embarked on a fun project with them that we titled the “Farmers Feast”, in which I would receive a mystery basket of ingredients, chosen by Tara Simpson – their events coordinator, each month to create a recipe with and share with you […]

Farmers Feast – Chef Edition [Recipe: Pear and Cranberry Tart]

It’s been a little longer than usual since I’ve talked about the Farmers Feast, but I hope you’ll forgive me knowing it was for a most excellent reason.   Tara and I decided this time around that it might be fun to switch things up a little and have two local chefs take on baskets of […]

Last Sigh of Summer | Farmers Feast #4 [Propeller ESB & Chipotle Braised Lamb Shank Tostadas]

I’m a season pusher. The crazy person wearing a wool sweater and heavy boots the second the mercury drops below 20 degrees. If it could be between +5 and +15 all year round, I’d be pleased as flaky apple pie (you know, because it would be apple season year round!)  I’m ready for fall and […]

Farmers Feast #3 [Warm Caramelized Corn, Shiro Plum & Patty Pan Salad]

Another month, another Farmers Feast.  This time, it was all about the corn. The beautiful, golden yellow and satisfyingly sweet corn. With the recent drought still causing uncertainty and stress for our farmers, I worried that I might not get the opportunity to go about my usual late-summer addiction to the succulent golden beauties.  Imagine my sheer elation […]

Farmers Feast #2 [Cherry & Red Currant Curd Granola Parfaits]

 It’s that time again….  Farmers Feast #2 is here! And it comes bearing brilliant red berries and crispy smoked bacon. That sounds good, right? I thought so, too. When Tara dropped off the basket this week (I wasn’t able to make it to the market last Sunday because I was shoving my face full of […]
