Welcome to The Ontario Table’s ezine, $10 Challenge: A Year of Eating Local.
Created as a complement to the Canadian bestselling cookbook to walk foodies through a year of eating local, this ezine will introduce you to more sources of local food and also to the associations that look after the development and promotion of local food groups.
November is a quiet month. The gardens are put to bed and the fields are bare. The only green on the country landscape is the sprouting winter wheat. Squash, pumpkins, beets, potatoes, and onions dominate farmers’ market stands, and we gather Indian corn and gourds to decorate for the season.
In this issue we celebrate with the savoury, rich flavours of Ontario mushrooms in Shiitake Skillet Garlic Pasta and Drunken Crimini Mushrooms. We warm our souls with treats like Pumpkin Patch Pancakes and Sour Cream Walnut Cake.
Enjoy them all!
