Harvest Table Lansdowne Park

Savour The Fruits & Labor Of Local Harvest At the Harvest Table Luncheon at Lansdowne Park

By on August 12, 2015

Thoughts of summer easily conjures up images of local farmlands rich in bounty and having delicious ingredients fresh and accessible for our meals.  We are very fortunate that we have a great relationship here in Ottawa with our farmers and local producers.

Savour Ottawa promotes all things local and residents of the Ottawa area couldn’t be more delighted. It’s a win-win situation for all involved. Local farmers and producers get to see the outcome… ‘fruits of their labor’ when they see regular customers buying their products every weekend at the local farmers market. And like I said it’s a win-win for us (the consumer) as we get to be spoiled by their bounty…like the annual Harvest Table gourmet luncheon.
Hosting its fifth annual Harvest Table on Sunday, August 30th in the beautifully renovated Horticulture building at the new Lansdowne Park, Savour Ottawa couldn’t be more pleased in regards the success of this annual event – as it typically sells as out very fast and for good reason.

Spoiling us with their riches, the Harvest Table is a collaboration of efforts between Savour Ottawa, local farmers & producers alongside with some of Ottawa’s talented chefs as they give back to the Ottawa community. Giving back in form of a beautiful multi-course epicure luncheon prepared by local chefs using local ingredients…just a stone’s throw from the Farmer’s Market at Lansdowne Park.

Enjoy a family-style feast sharing the company of producers, chefs and other guests.

And the pièce de résistance, triple-cream Brie with @artisinbakery baguette - the perfect match for such a meal. 

At this rate, indulgence should be my nickname 😉

Friday night, I had the privilege of attending the 2024 Canadian Culinary Championships - Mystery Wine Challenge - People's Choice Award🥇🥇@greatkitchenparty
.
Congratulations to all the chefs involved in this intense competition. The chefs needed to create a dish to pair with the mystery wine. Each chef was given a tricky budget of $550 for the 250 guests. I was witnessing creativity at its best!!😋
.
The winning dish🥇 (centered in the middle of the photo) was created by JP Dublado: Red Deer Resort and Casino, Red Deer AB
Dish: beet & soy cured albacore tuna - ponzu gel - tomato water - puffed wild rice - beet green oil
.
Amazing talent from all the chefs as they paired with the mystery wine (a 2021 Lailey Vineyard Zweigelt)🍷🍷

I am very proud to share my culinary "observer" perspective regarding @lecordonbleuottawa culinary workshops in the latest issue of @luxeottawamagazine 😊
.
Visiting my alma mater and watching the culinary workshop from a different lens reinforced the rationale as to why I pursued my culinary education…the pleasure of savouring the fruits of your labour. 😋
.
It is this journey that ignited my passion for cooking, helped hone my skills, and introduced me to a world of flavours and techniques that continue to inspire me to this day. And perhaps it will inspire you as well!👨‍🍳👩🏼‍🍳

Where's my rubber ducky 🐤😉?! 
.
A year ago this week, I was enjoying some bath time while in @discoverdominica 🏖🏝😍
.
Dominica's lush scenery is extraordinary, and I'm grateful to have been invited to visit their beautiful island😊😊
.
Visiting Wotten Waven Sulphur Springs was perfect to relax and rid of some unwanted stress. And the outdoor bath surrounded by all that green landscape was simply the BEST! An unforgettable experience! 🤩
.
Dominica's adventure activities - diving, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, swimming - are just some of the many ways to enjoy this tropical island.🤿🙂
.
Put Dominica on your travel list. You'll love it!!❤️❤️
