In Ontario, we celebrated Local Food Week, June 1-7 and boy, did the week go by in a flash! We asked a few friends to share “what local means to you” and we had some wonderful responses from Heather of The Tasty Gardener, Louisa of Living Lou and from Mardi of eat. live. travel. write.
Early in the week, we got an invite to join Ontario Beef
for lunch, as VG Meats
pulled into town with their impressive food truck, complete with a functional meat counter!
We also got a sneak peak at the brand new Blend & Extend burgers from VG Meats, Portabella Mushroom Steak Burger, featuring Ontario beef and mushrooms! There was no way you could stop at one sample!!
Alongside Ontario Beef, we took part in the Foodland Ontario Fresh Farmers Market at Queens Park, Toronto. We had a beautiful day on the lawn of Queens Park serving up samples of mouthwatering Beef and Mushroom Blended Taco Cups topped with a Thai-inspired Salsa, adapted from one of our favourite recipes
