Enjoying The Summer Bounty During Savour Ottawa Summer Tables

By on August 11, 2016

Ah, summer! The time of year when hot temperatures give a helping hand to Mother Nature’s bounty.

A time where sun, rain and manual labour give life and sustenance to a farmer’s field and in return provide delicious meals for our families.

To appreciate what Mother Nature has given us through the hard work of both farmers and chefs, Savour Ottawa Summer Tables is offering us the opportunity to enjoy the bounty of local farmers and producers at various restaurants, here in Ottawa.

Savour Ottawa Summer Tables is a collection of culinary events hosted by Savour Ottawa and held across the city at various restaurants over a period of 10 days in August (August 12th to 21st, 2016).

The goal of these events is to bring “farmers, restaurants, and local consumers together to enjoy delicious seasonal summer dishes in support of local agriculture and in celebration of the region’s talented chefs”.

I am happy to say that there will be nine restaurants within the local Ottawa area that will be participating and showcasing Savour Ottawa farmers.

The nine local restaurants participating in Savour Ottawa Summer Tables are:

The stunningly beautiful Trafalgar Falls, located in the Trois Piton National Park!!😍😍

These famous twin waterfalls are a 20-minute drive from Dominica's capital, Roseau. It's a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path to the viewing platform, where you can photograph both falls.

Fun fact: The smaller waterfall has cool refreshing water, whereas the tall one is a hot spring.💧🔥

Dominica's natural beauty is endless!!😍
