Viva Italia

By on June 8, 2013

When & where: June 6-16th, Little Italy

What: Italian culture, food, music and sports are celebrated at various events centered around St. Anthony’s Church on Booth Street and on Preston Street.

Italian Week Ottawa, now in its 39th year, celebrates the rich diversity of our Italian-Canadian community, our heritage of culture, food, music, poetry and the vibrant passions of its people.  Plans are well underway for this city’s most anticipated festival.

Come to Little Italy!  Dance under the stars, share in our gastronomic delights while attending the Assaggi, highlighting the delicious and varied regional cuisine of Italy. Cruise along the Ottawa River and see some historical sites, attend the St. Anthony’s Church procession, now in its 100th year and enjoy some beautiful fireworks lighting up the evening sky.

June in Ontario allows us to celebrate the 3nd anniversary of Italian Heritage Month. So come, partake in the vibrancy and allure of this annual festival and join us in the age old tradition of meeting old friends and making new ones, sipping espresso at an outside café, all while enjoying a taste of Little Italy. Be prepared to lose yourself in this tribute to all that our vibrant Italian culture has to offer – art, sport, culture and cuisine.

**Don’t forget the the Ferrari festival that takes place June 14th-16th.

After a long day, a rich and tasty avocado, egg and bacon salad was the way to go!!🥑🥚🥓😍😋

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!👨‍🍳👩🏼‍🍳
.
Check out the article and the new culinary workshops being offered. Enjoy the adventure!!😊🤗

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!!❤️❤️
