The Ontario Table is more than a cookbook, it is an agricultural journey designed to introduce you to the people, food and culture of Ontario's local food. Join Lynn Ogryzlo on a culinary adventure to 20 delicious culinary destinations throughout Ontario. A journey filled with amazing scenery, people, animals fields, gardens, orchards, vineyards and of course, food.
With extraordinary simplicity and depth, The Ontario Table offer more than 100 recipes that fit snugly into anyone's kitchen, with mouthwatering pictures of each that will seduce everyone from culinary novice to great home cook. The recipes reflect the flavours of the province, whether it be a plate of simple salad greens kissed with extra virgin canola oil; a slow cooked, aromatic winter wine roast; or the perfect mushroom bread pudding.
Eating locally is about more than food; it's about knowing the people who grow it. Throughout these pages you'll be introduced to more than 100 Ontario farmers and food producers. The personalities of each is captured in recipes like Smith Hawberry Leg of Lamb featuring the delicious combination of Ted Smith's hawberry preserves and a leg of lamb from an Ontario farmer like Montana Jones at Wholearth Farmstudio; or grilled cheese and asparagus sandwich that marries cheese from Thunder Oak Cheese Farm with Tim Barrie's fresh asparagus from the Barrie Brothers farm.
Recipes also feature Ontario wines from across the province along with Ontario products for your pantry.
