Last weekend some friends and I got together on Wolfe Island for our first go around of collaborating together on purchasing, preparing, cooking, photographing and finally eating local, farm fresh food. In the end it was a good test run of how much time and preparation is needed to fulfill our desired outcome. As it stood, we all purchased tickets to experience Wolfe Island’s first Field To Table dinner that same day, so we didn’t have enough time to indulge in our dishes until the next day!
These are a few samples of our work with more images to come.
On our way to Chadsey Cairn’s Winery we stopped for lunch at The Tall Poppy Cafe in Wellington, ON and this is some of what we ate and shared. And no, I was not happy about sharing the chocolate thingy you see above. You think I’m making that name up, but I can assure you I’m not. My friend Frank asked for, “the chocolate thingy” and when I turned around to see what he was referring to, the name on the card did indeed read: chocolate thingy. I love that, because ultimately that is a name we will all remember. And it was oh so good. That is a piece of white chocolate on top, not butter. It looks deceiving. We thought it was butter too, but it wasn’t.
Coming up in the next post will be images of what we listened to at Chadsey’s. Bet you can’t wait, huh?
Oh, and if you picked up the July issue of Profile Kingston magazine, look for yours truly on page 34.
