I spent the afternoon with this beauty at Savour Ottawa's Harvest Dinner, an annual event that celebrates local food, producers and makers.
Charcuterie: wild boar pâté, smoked corn & pepper relish, peppercorn salami and sausage, pickled summer vegetables & edible flowers, artisan cheese.
Beet salad with goat cheese and juniper & cardamom soil.
Smoked heritage pork in apple cider glaze.
Countless other dishes followed. Beef brisket, curried summer squash, swiss chard and potato croquettes. We smacked our lips and made room on our plates.
Finished with cheesecake topped with mixed berry compote and a maple cookie.
A very nice alfresco meal that I would gladly eat all over again.
